To complete your cartoon dog face, outline the drawing in black. Don't color the entire face black--you'll need a slightly lighter shade to make the features visible.

Make your dog face realistic by coloring the snout and the spots above the eyes dark orange. Add dark gray with black shadows for the rest of the face. Use pink for the tongue and white for the eyes and teeth
