A Ruff Tutorial on Quick Sketching

I thought I'd give a few pointers now and then with some quick-sketch tutorials. Let me know if you like them. I enjoy rough quick sketching; but some people may prefer only finished, published art. This one barely missed a coffee stain early this morning, as I drew it while still waking up!

The point of this tutorial is to show the three most important elements in drawing a cartoon puppy: 
  1. A tall forehead
  2. A tiny snout
  3. A massive back of the head

The third title in a bestselling series, Basic Drawing Made Amazingly Easy is a complete drawing book for the beginning artist. Based on a series of lessons that begin with the five basic shapes (circle, oval, square, cylinder, and rectangle) combined with the five basic components of drawing (line, mass, perspective, light, and shading), the book progresses from the simplest forms to more complex inanimate objects and organic animate subjects.
