How to Draw a Dog
In this lesson we will go over the steps of drawing a St. Bernard dog using # 2 pencil. This dog appeals to me because it looks friendly, and once you learn to draw this particular dog breed, you should be able to draw a Tiger, Wolfs and dogs of other breeds with ease.
Draw the outline of a dog. The dog is sitting in his a realistic pose. Start by drawing three circles of different sizes. The first circle will be the head. After drawing it, add the line for the dog's snout. Next, draw a medium circle for the chest of the dog. Then draw the bottom circle that will serve as the dog's legs. Add a line for the front legs and move on to the next step.
Torso of a dog. Draw the shape of the dog's body, as shown in the figure. Sketch its back and front legs. Draw two hanging ears and work on the outline of the dog's snout. After that, you can proceed to the next step.
For more details. Now draw the contour of the dog's fur. Draw eyes using the outline drawn in the first stage. Add a nose and a hanging tongue. Draw front and rear paws of the dog.
Remove all the extra lines that are no longer needed to support your dog outline. Define other features of your dog's head. Draw narrow slits for eyes. Draw an oval for the dog's nose and a snout in detail. Sketch the ears.
At this point, work on the dog's fur. To do this, apply small rapid strokes of a pencil on our initial lines, as shown on my figure here. Add tones to your dog figure in the next step.
Drawing a Dog, step by step. Final step. Draw the tail and add different shades of dog's coat in some places. Then put the final touches on the right side of the face and tongue. Finally, erase the extra lines from the earlier stages of your drawing. Now we know how to draw a dog. You can add tints and shades to the dog's fur using # 2 pencil or colored pencils.
