Drawing a puppy really isn’t that hard. This video might provide a bit more instruction.

Adding shading with pencils will make the dog look more realistic.  Create texture by sketching fur. You can even create a dog portrait by noticing the special characteristics of the dog. Details like spots will make your dog unique.

If you want a cartoon dog just draw the black lines and maybe exaggerate the facial features. Colored pencils can be used to give your dog drawing even more personality.

With just a bit of practice, you will be able to draw animals and more! What will you draw next? How about a rose drawing? It is an easy drawing too. If drawing a cartoon is more your style give this cartoon turkey drawing a try.

Grab a sketchbook and pencils (affiliate links) and you are ready to get creative.
