I actually made a lesson on this particular dog before but I called it a collie. Today you will learn "how to draw a border collie" one more time. With this border collie you will draw a more down to earth and realistic cartoon version of this very popular dog breed. Border collies make great family pets as well as herding or farm dogs. They come in all sorts of coat colors and have beautiful eye color too. Drawing a border collie isn't going to be as hard as you think, instead you will breeze right through this tutorial like it was nothing. I hope you all enjoy, I will return one last time with more drawing fun. Peace people.
