It's easy to sketch accurate, character-filled likenesses of dogs, and this book will show you how to draw 30 different types of canines: hunting, working, sporting, hounds, terriers, and other kinds of dogs. You'll discover how combining circles, ovals, rectangles, and other simple forms results in realistic depictions of a beagle, cocker spaniel, collie, Dalmatian, Old English sheepdog, golden retriever, and 24 other breeds. If you like, you can even create your own fantasy dogs by combining heads, bodies, tails, and legs from different breeds. Each of the step-by-step guides includes a blank practice page as well as a short description of the breed. The finished drawings are great for coloring, too.
