We’ll look at tips for drawing on a computer or tablet, but these steps can be followed with pencil and paper as well. So grab whatever you’re using and let’s get started!
A dog’s body can be reduced to three circles, with the bottom two circles forming the body and the top circle forming the face.
Connect the top and bottom circles to form a dog’s head, then add another smaller circle to the top circle to form the dog’s muzzle, and finally connect the two bottom circles to form the dog’s body, as shown in the diagram below.
Legs and tail
Make sure the leg joints are in the right place, and then add the tail by drawing a straight line from the top of the back circle to the bottom.
Use a darker, softer pen or pencil if you’re drawing on paper, and soften the sketches you’ve been working on so far if you’re using a digital device. At this point, we need to add the nose, eyes, and ears, as well as the legs.
You can draw dogs in a variety of poses and poses that suit your body type and pose by following the steps above.
Legs, eyes, muzzle
When pre-drawing the legs in the digital version of this exercise, pay attention to the joints and their alignment, just as you did before.
Ears, tip of the nose
The basic shape for a dog’s ear is a triangle, but this doesn’t work for certain poses. Erect ears suggest alertness or even aggression; if you want your dog to be relaxed, let the ears hang.
A dog’s nose is a fairly complicated structure with some bumps and folds, and drawing it from a frontal perspective can help you understand more about the anatomy of a dog. The best way to capture a living model most accurately is to draw it from a realistic perspective.
The tongue comes out directly under the W and hangs out over the lower lip. Because the dog is looking slightly to the right in this drawing, the right side of the W should be a little narrower than the left.
