Dog Drawing Instructions
Start by drawing an oval shape. You can make a perfect oval or make it to be a bit more “boxy”. Nothing wrong if it’s more round. This will be the snout.
Continue by making a inverted U shape above the oval you have previously drawn. This will be the head. Also make the nose. You can make it round or more of a triangle shape.
Draw the ears. We think droopy or folded ears are the best, but you could also draw pointy, button or any other shape you want.
Lets finish up the dog face. Draw two spots for eyes and two arches above the eyes for the eyebrows. Draw a straight line from the snout and a wavy line for the mouth.
Also make the front pair of legs.
Time to make the body!
Last but not lest, draw a pair of hind legs and a wiggly tail.
Congratulations you have learned how to draw a dog.
Now that you have finished your dog drawing it’s time to color it.
