Step 6: Draw a curved line on the left side of the head as a guide for Max's muzzle. The curved line should meet the horizontal construction line at the top. Pay attention to its size relative to the head.
Step 7: Draw two curved lines above the head on either side as a guide for Max's ears. The shape of these curved lines should be similar to the letter U. The curved line on the right should be bigger and wider than the one on the left, and it should overlap the head a bit.
Step 8: Add a line on top of the U-shaped lines to complete the guides for Max's ears. Then draw a line on the left that curves down toward the right and touches the head.
Step 9: Draw four long lines under the body as guides for Max's legs. Bend the lines a bit at the tip to indicate where the feet will be. Bend the lines for the hind legs along the middle too to indicate where the joints will be. Add a curved line on the top right side of the dog's body as a guide for the tail.
That's it for the initial sketch of Max from The Secret Life of Pets! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined drawing.
