I picked a Chihuahua as my character, I picked one reference where the dog is shown in profile, and one where I better view of the head. Then sketch those, and then I tried to construct the head with simpler forms and some exaggeration. For the final sketch from imagination I tried to draw a similar pose as the reference but from a different angle. I tried to exaggerate the head size and bulging eyes, and give the dog a bit more character. This was a very fun exercise

They all look really good! Only one thing I think you can look a little bit more into is the placing of the legs, maybe look up dog anatomy on the internet. I think dog-shoulders end a little lower and the front legs should be a little closer to eachother. I think you used the reference really well for your drawing from imagination, but it always helps to analyse more references from different points of view to make sure you have a fully 3d image of it in your head :) Keep up the good work!
