How to Draw a Boxer Dog - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: First, let's draw the top part of the boxer's head. This is the part that will contain the eyes and ears. Leave an opening on the right side for the lower part of the head.
Step 2: In the opening, draw the lower part of the head. Also give your drawing some details by adding the eye and the spots for the whiskers.
Step 3: Now it's time to draw the nose and the mouth. Remember, boxers have very floppy cheeks called jowls, so they fold down on both sides of the mouth.
Step 4: Next, draw the ears. Put one in the opening on the side, and the other coming out of the back. Boxers have long and pointy ears that stand up tall when they hear something important.
Step 5: Now draw the back. The body is long and it has a short, pointy tail. Think of a triangle with only two sides.
Step 6: Then draw the back leg and the lower part of the body. Be sure to leave space for the front leg.
Step 7: The next step is the front leg. Also draw the neck, connecting the front leg and the head.
Step 8: Last, draw the other two feet, peeking out from behind the feet you already drew.
