How To Draw a Dog (or ANY Animal!)

Learn how to draw any animal!

In this drawing tutorial for beginners, I will show you how to sketch a dog from a reference photo using basic shapes and drawing techniques. From there, you’ll create your own dog without any reference at all.  You’ll be able to do this because you’ll have already mastered the basic shapes and positioning!

Watch the video below or click here to see how I go from sketch, to a totally unique ink illustration.  I’ll share a watercolour version with you as well.

Once you master the idea of looking for shapes in your reference photos, you’ll be able to draw literally any animal much easier!
Give it a try and be sure to share your final sketches with me on Instagram!
