To go with the paw print, I decided that a lesson on something that can teach you the ins and outs when it comes to learning "how to draw paws", step by step. When it comes to sketching out an animal whether it be a lion, tiger, cat, or dog, you will need to know how to draw one of the most important aspects to the animals body, the paws. Now because I believe in this theory, a while back I submitted a tutorial on wolf paws. I was pleased to see that the lesson had been a success. What I mean by that is, if a tutorial gets more views then expected, it proves to me that people have been waiting for something to aid them into drawing, or doing something better. I think that this submission is going to be such an aid. It too me forever to teach myself how to draw a decent looking dog. Once I felt like my skill level was good enough to teach other artist conquer such a task, I would do so in a lesson. I had a bunch of fun sketching out these dog paws. This is the type of art I like creating because it tunes into something I'm interested in. For example, I think cat, dog, wolf, lion, tiger, and cougar legs and paws, are some of the most fascinating parts of said animal. Included with the tutorial, you will receive a few tips and tricks when it comes to drawing a dogs paw. If you asked me if I though other artists would like this lesson, I would have to say yeah, I do. So because of that, I think it's time for me to shut the heck up, and let you get busy with this tutorial on “how to draw dog paws,” step by step. All you have to do to successfully complete this lesson, is just read the instructions, and follow the steps. I still have five more tutorials for you guys to go through so don't go anywhere to far from your computer. If you do, make sure you're back in a hurry so you don't miss out on the drawing fun!

How to Draw Dog Paws

In this second step, you won't be learning how to draw something, instead I just thought a sketch on some different paws in a simplified manner, would be helpful to those of you that choose to tackle this tutorial today.

This is already your last drawing step. All you have to do is draw the lining for the back of the first leg, draw the toe lines, and nails. Next do the same thing to the other two legs and paws. When you are done you can start erasing all the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.
