How to Draw a Valentine

Step 1.

Begin with the shapes of the head and body guides like you see here.

Step 2.

Next, begin drawing out the puppy's face shape which is long, raggy styled hair. Instead of drawing a simple cleaned lined pooch, I wanted to make a different type of pup that looks more like a rag doll of sorts.

Step 3.

Go ahead and draw the crinkled looking ears and then complete the shape of the head and face sticking with the ragged lining.

Step 4.

Use the facial guidelines to draw out the big, cute puppy dog eyes and color in the pupils. When that is done you can draw the small heart shaped nose, the mouth and some freckle/whisker marks.

Step 5.

Now that the face, ears and head is done you can draw the heart biscuit or treat that this dog is biting on and then draw the tuft of fur on the chest.

Step 6.

We will draw in the body giving the puppy a shaggy, semi curled tail and then the rest of the body which is the back, hind legs and front legs & paws.

Step 7.

Lastly, draw a box shape under the pup which is the Valentine card stamped with a heart. Erase the mistakes and guides.

Step 8.

Here it is. A cute drawing on a Valentine. Go ahead and have fun coloring in your new piece of art.
