Here is a very detailed tutorial on "how to draw a guard dog", step by step. The reason for this lesson is because I have four of these same exact dogs in my house and as you know German Shepherds are known to be one of the top breed of dog for home protection, police work, search and rescue, and so on and so forth. I truly love this breed because of their intelligence, nobility, courage, and loyalty. We have two males and two females that range in colors from all black, to black & tan, and red and black. Guard dogs are always depicted as being vicious, mean, and evil. My thought on that is, of course they appear this way to folks that don't own Fido, they are just acting on instinct and their first instinct is to protect their owners and their territory. I for one feel very safe with my shepherds, and for those of you that that have a German shepherd, I'm sure you know my exact feeling. Of course let's not forget about Fife who is also a very good guard dog because without those small toy breeds, we wouldn't be afraid to get our ankles bit by them when coming into a strangers home. It doesn't matter what size dog you have, if the canine loves you they will ultimately die for you and yours. Have fun drawing a guard dog folks, and be sure to leave some feedback because I love hearing what you think.
