This 26-page tutorial is virtually like a textbook for drawing dogs in colored pencil and will show you techniques you can use to draw dogs of all kinds on your own. Shiny dark hair, short directional hair, long silky hair, shadowed wavy hair: it's all here for you to learn and practice.  Then you'll get to dive into the whole array of facial features: liquid, soulful eyes; a wet nose; teeth, gums and tongue. No kidding: it's an encyclopedia of techniques for learning how to improve all your dog portraits, whether the subjects are your own loyal and true companions or portrait commissions.

In this step-by-step tutorial we will draw a beautiful shiny Hovawart dog, a German dog breed whose name means "farm-watcher." They are simply beautiful dogs! In this lesson we’ll focus on creating the very shiny fur effect with a limited color palette and learn to work in layers to build up the gums, teeth and tongue. The end goal is to create a very lively and realistic portrait.

Best of all, there's only a very short and manageable supply list for this amazing project!  You'll need just 18 Polychromos pencils and Canson white paper, which is an easily sourced drawing paper. You're bound to be ready to start the moment your project arrives, whether digitally or in print.

About In-Depth Tutorials:

Created by master colored pencil artists, each In-Depth tutorial features 30+ steps and focuses on teaching you why and not just how the artist applies their technique. No book or video comes close to the amount of instruction in an In-Depth tutorial. Art instruction books typically contain 4-6 steps per demo. That just scratches the surface! With large images and 28 or more steps, In-Depth tutorials truly show you exactly how the artist works, making it easy to truly learn new colored pencil techniques and achieve success.

Note: Drawing paper and pencils not included. See images for complete supply list. Polychromos pencil name changes can be found here

Loyal and True - My Attempt

I like doing these types of drawing tutorials. It gives me a challenge and time to focus on improving my skills. I still prefer in class personal study because I do come across sections were I need a hands on approach. It would be nice to have an instructor near by to point out the proper technique. This one I started twice mainly because I tried to do it with Prismacolor Premier pencils cross referencing to the Faber Castell Psychometric pencils. It seems that I was not getting the results I wanted. I like way it turned out so far. I do have some minor additions to add on and complete. I will be doing more of these tutorials in the coming days and weeks. Thanks!

Although I bought the tutorial only halfway through my drawing, it was very helpful in areas like getting the lips and gums looking realistic, as well as the texture and colouring of the nose. Will definitely purchase more on other topics.
