Are you one of those people who really likes dogs, but have a bit of a problem drawing them? Well - what you need is a guide dog...

You will need:
  • paper
  • pencil
  • paintbrush
  • paint
  • eraser
The first thing that you draw is this... a round head, a pointy snout, and then the numbers 6, 1, 1, 1.

This is your "guide dog" - and this is nice and easy!
Use that as a guide to drawing your dog.

Now you can put in your dog's features - eyes, snout, ears and the rest of the head.
Just carry on with the rest of the dog's features - collar, body shape along the 6, and then use the 1's for the guide to drawing the legs.

You can use this guide dog to make any dog you like, depending on what size the numbers 6 and 1 are, and how close together they are.
Here are some more dogs based on this "6111" pattern.

And once you've done your dog, rub out the guidelines, and then you can paint them in... these ones here.

An easy but great way of drawing dogs.

Try it yourself!
