How to Draw a Hound

Step 1.

Make the head and body guides like so. The body is shaped like a hotdog sort of.

Step 2.

Using the head guide, sketch out the shape of the head structure. The muzzle should be narrow and slim and the ears should be large and pointed.

Step 3.

You will now draw the shape of the hound's neck, then draw the shoulders and front legs.

Step 4.

You will draw in the markings on the face, neck and chest, then draw the left foot and add some toes on each paw. Draw in the hound's eye, mouth and nose as well.

Step 5.

You will now draw the actual shape of the hound's body. When you do this be sure to draw the back leg as it is sitting on it's bum.

Step 6.

Add the rest of the markings on the hound's belly, then draw in the other foot. When the feet are drawn, add some toes on each back paw.

Step 7.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw in the bushy tail which is curled up towards the back of the animal's body. Erase the guides and mistakes when you are done.

Step 8.

That's all there is to it guys. You can color in your hound using any shade you like.

I might as well get this lesson uploaded on "how to draw a hound". Now a hound is just another word to use when talking about dogs or a dog. My little sister actually likes this drawing concept of an anime stylish dog. It's colored in gray but you can choose any shade you like when adding life to this animal. Drawing hounds or dogs can be both fun and challenging, I chose to go a little simple with this concept so everyone can have fun.
