Description: One more lesson for the books based on another animal. Here we will learn "how to draw a sitting dog", step by step. Drawing dogs in all different poses can be a real challenge in itself because there is so many things you have to consider when doing so. For example when you draw dogs sitting or laying, you have to make sure that their limbs are accurately placed and positioned. If you don't do this your pooch may come out looking deformed because the body may look bigger or smaller than the head. This dog is a mixed breed. I went with a combination of a boxer and pitbull because these dogs are so condemmed to a point where people believe they shouldn't be treated like mans best friend. I had a lot of fun with the coloring because drawing a two toned dog makes them that much more desirable. I should have actually colored one or both eyes blue, that would have looked nice. well, have fun drawing a sitting dog and I will get busy with uploading more lessons. Adios mi amigos!
