With smooth lines, delineate a neck. Draw guidelines for the legs.

Outline the shapes of the legs.

**Step 5**

Draw a tail and the foreleg that the puppy is sitting on. Define the shape of the face.

Work on the whole figure, paying attention to details.

**Step 8**

Contour the golden retriever puppy, trying to vary the thickness and blackness of the line. Draw more details and the ground. Erase all guidelines.
