Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a Corgi which is a type of dog. So we're going to start with the basic shape which is two circles kind of a distance away because these dogs are pretty long, join them with a straight line across the top and then this line can go up just a little bit. So that's the basic body and put his head right here, there's another circle right above this circle which is the front of his body and they've got pretty thick necks so we can actually join these two circles like so. They're like little sausages on little legs. So with the legs, come across with a little curved line here and this line from the other circle can come all the way around and just a couple short little lines and little feet. Corgis have really short legs so you can not make them too long. The back leg, there's a couple little lines that taper in a little bit at the bottom and hide up behind this thigh. The front is just the same, little lines that come down, taper a the bottom, give him a little paw and the back one. If you wanted to make him a little bit more realistic you could make these front lines come up into the body and shade behind the muscle. Now for the head you're going to have him looking kind of towards us so I draw a couple little lines like this across the circle so I know where the eyes are going to be, put two little dots for the eyes. His nose is going to be about here and his little mouth, and little snout that comes down and then the coolest thing about Corgis are the huge ears. They're these tiny little dogs with big ears so draw very big triangles at the top of their head and you get the whole Corgi look and draw a couple little lines on the inside of the ears to make it look like they go in and you can erase all of these lines on the inside, anything that you don't need any more. And there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw a Corgi.
