Use some basic shapes to work out the ideas. Our example is a beagle like robot with short legs and a medium body. Use circles to get a rough peanut shape for the body, draw lightly since you will be erasing later. The head starts like a teardrop pointing sideways. Use stick figure technique to get the legs positioned.

The body is boxier so go over the peanut shape with some straight lines. Go around the stick figure legs and make them wider. Add circles for nuts, bolts and for hinges.

Use an oval for the ears. Draw a rectangle for the nose and snout. Sketch a narrower rectangle for the  lower jaw. Draw a window for the eyes it could be round or any shape you want.  Go around these basic shapes again to make them look more dog like but not too much.

Add buttons and knobs and antenna.

Use shading technique to give the robot dog roundness and thickness. The legs and the far side are in shadow and so they are darker. Find some places to make dark for contrast.
