Drawing of a Dog Face

Not all animal drawing lessons need to fit the entire animal on one sheet of paper. Sometimes it’s fun to just focus on the part that is the most expressive, like the face. This tutorial features a simple dog with a cute smile, wagging tongue and big adorable ears.

If you notice that your students tend to not use their entire paper, and are drawing on the small side, this close up view of a dog face will mix things up for them. Drawing small is a natural tendency that many beginner artists start out with. It’s kind of like a comfortable approach they are used to, so it helps to give them a project that asks them to think BIG, and fill up their entire sheet of paper.

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
  • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.
