In this drawing guide, we will tell you how to draw a dog nose. This drawing tutorial is great for very beginning artists. It is also very useful for more skillful artists who want to draw dogs realistically. Along with drawing lessons for a human nose or lips, a dog’s nose can be called a basic drawing lesson.
So, we start this guide on how to draw a dog nose. Draw a shape that resembles an inverted truncated cone. It also looks like the outline of the Superman sign. Arrange this shape according to your imagination. If you are drawing the entire dog, this figure should be in front of the head. In our case, this shape is located in the center of the sheet of paper.
That dog’s nose isn’t too complicated, is it? We definitely cannot do without basic details. First, draw a vertical line that will divide this shape into two equal parts. After that draw the rough outlines of the nostrils. Use smooth, rounded lines without pressing hard on the pencil.
Connect the rounded shapes that represent the nostrils to the bottom of the drawing. Trace the bottom edge of our sketch to create an anatomically correct shape for this dog nose. Notice the small triangular cutout that lines up with the vertical line of symmetry. Note the relationship of the vertical lines of this figure with the rounded lines of the nostrils. There should be no sharp lines and pronounced bends. Try to create smooth and natural lines as possible.
So, we have done the basic actions of drawing a dog’s nose. Delete unnecessary lines. Check all final lines for symmetry and correctness. However, you should not strive for perfect symmetry, which is not found in nature. It looks like a great gamepad button, doesn’t it? In fact, it is a myth that no dog’s nose suffers when making gamepads.
Draw shadows. Use a sweeping one-layer shading to depict light shadows. Two-layer crisscross hatching will help create a heavy shadow effect. As you can see, the most intense shadows are located within the contours of the dog’s nostrils.
So, at the final of this drawing tutorial, you can double-check the correctness of all contour and shapes. After that action, you can delete all the guide construction lines drawn earlier, to make your cartoon eyes drawing look more finished. Congratulations, this is a great job!
