This is what the dog sketch looks like now. The basic shape is all there, the features placed. Note that there is also some 'information' marks - near the eyes and the forehead, where there are bumps, and some suggestions of fur ruffles on the dog's neck. These help us to find our way around the face and also to remember to look "across the form", and not just outline. So far this has taken only a minute or two to draw. Beginners might take a few moments longer, but the trick is to look, think, and set the lines down confidently.
