Dogs are very lovable creatures. This is why they have become a favourite by artists to draw. There are different ways in which you can draw a dog, since there are also different kinds of dogs out there. However, there are still general factors that you should consider when drawing them. Here are the things you should know if you want to learn to draw dogs.
Drawing A Cartoonish Dog
If you’ll be teaching children how to draw, one of the best subjects to start with would be a dog. This is because children love dogs and they are quite familiar with how one would look like. For kids, a cartoon dog would be just right.
Basic Body Parts
First you should draw four circles. Put one circle on top of another, overlapping each other by about 1/3. Make the top most circle the smallest and as you go down, make the next circle slightly bigger than the previous. Align them vertically. However place the second circle from the most top a bit off centered to the left. The top circle would be your dog’s head. The second one, which is off-centered, would be his snout. The lowest two would be your dog's body.
Add Some Ears
Draw the ears. Pick one spot on the upper right portion of its head and draw a sharp triangular arc going outwards. From the same point, draw another triangular arc but this time a bit higher than the previous one. Close them off by a curved line. This is your right dog ear. Do the same on the left side. This time, make sure that the arc would be going out towards the left.
