Well my last drawing tutorial was on how to draw a werewolf face, head and eyes from multiple points of view. This next tutorial is going to be on "how to draw puppies", step by step. Now puppies are probably one of the most adorable living things on the planet next to infants and toddlers. Puppies come in many different sizes and breeds and they can be bought for a lot of money from a private breeder, or adopted at a local animal shelter or SPCA for a reasonable price. I did this tutorial based on my two very favorite types of breed, the French mastiff and the English bulldog. Out of the two I would rather own a French mastiff puppy instead of an English bulldog because they are way cuter and have more size to them. Puppies are so popular and because of that you will often see merchandise for sale like posters, coffee mugs, sweaters, and a variety of other things that make these animals a “must have image”. Puppies get even cuter with age, I mean don’t get me wrong they are cute when their first born, but as they get older they become more and more bite-able. When drawing out these two puppies I used reference pictures of an English bulldog and a French mastiff. The drawing sketch took me forever, which is why there are some imperfections with the line art. At first I used paper and a pencil, and then when the image was scanned in I used my Wacom drawing tablet. I was going to upload the sketch aspect of the picture that I drew, but I thought that some of you would want to print out the finished drawing to color or something. This tutorial will show you how to draw puppies step by step. I will be back again with more drawing fun so stay tuned folks there is more on the way.

How to Draw Puppies

how to draw puppies step 1

STEP 1.

Okay are you ready for this first drawing step? Good, start by drawing out the guidelines and shapes for the two puppies as you see here. First draw out two circle shapes for the heads and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw out the shapes for their torso's or bodies and for the puppy on the right add a rounded box shape for the muzzle. Once that is done you can add the leg lines and paw shapes.

Okay now that your frame for the puppies are drawn out you can add some other lines to shape up the two adorable bundles of joy. You will first draw out the line shapes for the eyes and then the outlining for the muzzles. Once that is done you can go ahead and draw out the shape of the wrinkly front legs and paws. Once that is done you can move to the next step.
