How to Draw a Shih Tzu

Step 1

Start by drawing the eyes of your Cat in pencil. Draw lightly at first so that you can erase easily if you want to change anything.

Step 2

Next add the mouth, nose and whiskers.

Step 3

Now we can add the outline of the head.

When you finish your Shih Tzu drawing why not color it in!
