When I say that I have some cute and fun stuff for you today, I really mean it. Now, I would have thought of this idea for a tutorial if I wasn’t so loaded with work. I was asked if I could make a lesson on "how to draw a golden retriever puppy", step by step. Of course I jumped on this idea because how many folks and families that you know of have one of these dog breeds. It seems like everywhere I turn everybody has a golden retriever for a pet, and if not a retriever it’s a Labrador. Anyways, I made this concept of a GR puppy a little older than the previous versions. I know I probably should have drawn a younger stage, but I kind of wanted to switch up the drawing style a bit and since there is no way that a bulldog puppy can look any other way. I’m sure I will continue to get more and more requests for me to make other puppy drawing lessons, so until then have fun with this tutorial on one of the world’s most popular dog breeds, "how to draw a golden retriever puppy". I will be back in a bit so try and stay tuned in to see what else I have for you all. Peace out people and enjoy!

How to Draw a Golden Retriever Puppy, Golden Retriever

STEP 1.

I know you must be asking yourself, "why s there two shapes for this puppy"? The answer is simple, this is an older pup that you will be drawing, so because of this making more shapes is going to make the lesson easier to understand and follow. Having said that, start by drawing two circles. The top one should be larger than the bottom shape. Add one face guide and move to step two.

Sketch out the shape of the dogs head and or face, and when you do this make sure that the lining is fluffed. Draw the jowls, and then move to step three.

STEP 3.

Draw in the top line for the head like you see here and with the very same stroke, sketch out the long loose hanging ears. Be sure that the ends of the ears have points. This is to show the hairy tuft retrievers have for their coats. Lastly, sketch in the brows or eyebrows.
