In this very simple, but realistic drawing guide, our team will tell you how to draw a dog bed – an interior detail familiar to all dog owners.
This is a very simple tutorial, perfect for practicing drawing elementary geometric shapes and flowing lines. You can also strengthen your shadow drawing skills. Do not take our guide as an imperative instruction. You can create a dog bed of your own design by following our sequence of actions.
So, let’s start the guide on how to draw a dog bed. First sketch out the rough outlines of the bed. Don’t try to draw perfectly straight lines. The most important thing is to choose the correct position of the sketch on the sheet of paper and outline the baselines. Note that all corners are rounded. Try to use the lightest possible strokes so you can fix or delete it later.
Draw the front and back of the dog bed. First depict the inner part that looks like a parallelogram with no bottom edge. After that add external lines. Avoid sharp corners and sharp bends. As you can see, all lines are absolutely smooth. Pay attention to the distance between the lines. Try to use the sketch from the previous step as a guide.
Divide the front of the dog bed into two uneven pieces. As you can see, the top is significantly thinner than the bottom. The border of the front edge of the sofa merges into the side border. From this angle, it looks a bit like the front bumper of a car. It will be ideal if you can draw this step without using auxiliary tools.
So, we conclude the guide on how to draw a dog bed. Draw the bottom edge of the sofa. It looks like one long flowing line that connects the most distant sections of our animal accessory. Short vertical lines in this case will be an excellent guide. Look closely at the drawing and fine parallel lines. Try to draw this without using a ruler.
Draw light shadows on the dog bed. Before drawing this, locate the light source. Shadows on the opposite side should be most intense. To paint dark shadows, use two-layer hatching. In other areas, light, single-layer shading is an excellent choice. If you are drawing a leather sofa, you can add small highlights.
So, you have drawn a dog bed. Congratulations, this is a great job! Check that all proportions and lines are correct. After that, remove all extra lines. Try drawing other animal accessories, such as a toy.
Today we drew a pretty simple version of the dog bed, but of course, you can make any other version of this item. You can make any other shape or other inscription to give your dog sofa a more individual design. Do not forget that your feedback is the best reward for our work.
