Thank you to everyone who voted in the online poll! The results are in, and you will see which animal won once the drawing demo video starts.
In the video I share three quick tips for how to draw an animal portrait.
While I have a specific reference image in the video, don’t be afraid to use your own reference image. Maybe you have a beloved dog or cat that you would love to draw. Go ahead and draw them! The steps in the video can be applied to any animal. (Just one word of caution when choosing a reference image: it’s much easier to start with a face than a full body. Trying to get those legs right is a whole other level and one that I will write about in an upcoming Drawing Tips PDF. For now, keep it simple!)
The drawing video is below.
Grab some paper, sharpen your pencil, and dive in!
I would LOVE to see what you come up with! If you have any questions about what I talked about or issues that arose for you while you were drawing, just ask!
