OK, time for another lesson, and this time around - it's how to draw Scooby Doo - obviously, one of the most famous cartoon characters of all time.

Sitting down, and looking straight forward - this lesson begins with a simple framework of circles, arranged to give you a better idea, for how the structure comes together *before* you put down any lines.

Have fun with it!

And yes, just as stated above - it's on to that series of circles (and ovals too) - connecting to form a simple framework for out cartoon drawing of Scooby Doo.

Here's what we've got, in the very first step...

Adding to this, next - let's mark off some additional key/defining features of Scooby - the ears (pointed of course), and his arms and legs.

Here's how it looks...

And you guessed it, next - it's time to draw!

Head tilted to his right - it makes for the need to consider what parts of Scooby's head, are ideal for drawing first.

For example, if something falls further back in the drawing - then often, if you don't like erasing - or if you just like going about a drawing in a smooth sequence...

Than it helps to draw *that part* near the end.

So yes then, here's how to draw Scooby's face - nose, left eye and ear, and a bit of his mouth - like this...

So fading that part out to grey now - makes quite a bit of sense, to next go in and bring out additional parts of the head... things like the other eye, perimeter lines, etc. - sort of like below...

Next up - here's how to draw Scooby's other ear and lip, the two final parts that logically come in sequence when drawing the head.

Well, maybe not the lip - but definitely the right ear.

And then yes, do move down and begin sketching in some other parts of the character - like so...

Still going strong, next up - bring out the central part of Scooby - by sketching in more of the collar, and the chest area.

And now - moving out once again (inside to outside sequence ~in effect), go ahead and sketch in his neck and shoulders - leading down to the lower part of the body.

Here he is...

OK, just a few more lines here and there now.

Go ahead and detail Scooby's dog tag - and also... get in behind the front legs, by drawing the ones in the back, naturally - in sequence.

As always though, do go about the lesson in what ever way *you think* will best help.

Here's what we've got...
