How to Draw a Husky Dog - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Huskies are big, furry dogs that work in the snow! Start drawing yours by making a line that slopes down and to the left to make a forehead, before curving to the left to make a small pointy nose. The front of the snout should be drawn with two lines, with a divot between them. The bottom chin can be made with a line that goes back, and then curves down into the start of the neck. But a line just above the chin to make the mouth.
Step 2: Now add a line at the tip to make the nose. Put in a two sided triangle for the inside of the ear at the top of the head. Put in a line that slants down behind that, before curving to the left to make the ear's exterior. Put in a small line on the brow to make the eyebrow coloring, and a circle just beneath that for the eyeball itself. Put in a line that waves slightly, going from infront of the eye down to the neck to make the fur pattern there.
Step 3: Next let's draw the chest and front leg. A curving line down from the next will make the chest, and a sock shape can be made to make the leg. Put in a few small looping lines at the tip of the sock shape to make individual toes. Add a wavy line at the top of the sock shape to make the fur pattern.
Step 4: For the belly, draw a simple line that curves slightly towards the back, starting at the leg you've drawn. For the back, start at the back of the ears, and make a line that curves to slant down, before curving to go straight back. Lastly, curve the line back down to make the rear hump of the animal.
Step 5: Now draw the back leg! It starts with two lines, one at the space left at the end of the belly, the other at the rear hump of the back. They curve down, and get closer, before coming in to make another sock shape. Add a wavy line at the top of the sock shape for the fur pattern, and small loops at the bottom to imply toes.
Step 6: The next front leg should be drawn with a line that starts just in front of the first foot, curving down before bending towards the front briefly to make the foot. Bend it back towards the first foot, and add a few loops on the foot to make the toes.
Step 7: The second back foot is drawn similarly. A line should start in front of the first back foot, curving down and then out to make the toes. Curve it back, and then add loops at the tip.
Step 8: The tail is big, and bushy! Make one big line that curves down from the rear of the Husky, going down and finishing just above the bottom of the Husky's feet. Add a line near the bottom to make the fur pattern, and you're done! Your Husky is ready to pull a sleigh through the snow!
