Video Tutorial: How To Draw A Dog
1. Pencil or black marker
3. Colouring supplies
Now let’s draw that dog!
Let’s draw the dog’s head with eyes, nose, mouth, and ears.
Step 1: First draw an arc to mark the top part of the head of the dog. Then draw the dog ears on both sides of the arc.
Step 2: Complete the lower part of the head by attaching two curves from both inner lower parts of the ears. The two curves should meet at the center to make the chin.
Step 3: Draw a rounded triangle as the nose at the center and above the chin leaving a space for the mouth. Use your marker to color it black leaving a tiny white line at the center.
Step 4: Draw the mouth of the dog from the lower tip of the nose, as a smile-like curve towards the right and to the left sides. Draw the tongue as another curve at the center and color it black leaving a tiny U-shaped white at the center.
Step 5: Draw two eyes with eyebrows, one above both sides of the nose as two circles. Color the two circles black using your marker leaving tiny white dots at the center.
Let’s draw the dog’s body, and legs
Step 6: Draw two big arcs from the head as the body and the front legs with paws. Draw the back legs with claws. Draw an arc to attach the front legs’ paws to complete the body.
Let’s draw the dog’s collar and tail
Step 7: Draw the collar at the neck with a bone-like pendant.
Step 8: Draw a cone-like wavy chest around the collar pendant.
Step 9: Draw the tufted tail behind the back leg.
Step 10: Here are two hearts for a job well done.
Step 11: Use a brown color to paint the tips of the ears, the tip of the tail, and the body part under the legs. Use yellow color to paint the rest of the body leaving the cheeks, collar, chest, and legs of the dog. Use pink color to paint the cheeks and red color to paint the collar and the hearts.
