Description: Hello my fellow artists, welcome to another drawing lesson at Today I will start by submitting a tutorial that will teach you "how to draw a simple dog, step by step". Drawing simple animals is the best way to get the creative juices flowing through your fingers because you can always gradually start drawing something more complex by taking it to the next level. The simple dog that I drew is cute, and very friendly looking. I could go on and on about how I enjoy sketching animals. But unfortunately, not everyone here likes to draw felines or dogs all day long. There is so many different poses that I could have drawn this dog in but, since I was going for a simple front view, I thought the artist should feel like they are being stared at by the cute pooch. I think you will find that this tutorial is going to be easy, and fast. I guarantee that learning โ€œhow to draw a simple dog, step by stepโ€, has never been so easier before.
