Step 1: Begin with a small circle for the head, adding in a thin oval overlapping the underneath side of it and also adding in several other circles, one for the neck, a larger one for the body and final oval for the hind parts.

Step 2: Then you'll erase the overlapping parts of the circle and oval you drew for the head also smoothing out the top where the two overlap and adding in the underside of the jaw eyes, ears, mouth and nose to complete the head.

Step 3: Next you'll draw in the long, curving neck, making the lines continue on either side of the small circle guide and add in the left front leg with a bend in the knee on the larger oval you drew for the body, erasing the part of the oval where the leg joins it.

Step 4: Then draw the other front leg behind the first, making it straightened and erasing the circle guide for the neck.

Step 5: Next you'll draw the left hind leg and foot, making it slightly extended forward and making sure to erase the part of the oval the intersects it after adding in a few details and smoothing out the back where the two ovals meet.

Step 6: Then draw in the other hind leg, extending it backward and also adding in the small hill-shaped hump in the back.

Step 7: Next you'll draw in a few details such as the nails on the feet and the thin hairy tail and a few detail lines on the front legs.

Step 8: Lastly, you'll draw in a curving line on the side and some hairs on the top of the back and on the top and bottom of the neck.
