Hey, what's up? Chris here, and today we're going to be learning how to draw animal textures. So let's begin. I'm going to give you four examples. Now the first thing you'd want to do is you'd want to draw boxes so you'd want to draw one line, one line and another line coming down and another line coming down and the same thing on that side. Okay, so the first thing we're going to do is we're going to do a giraffe texture. So we're going to use this big marker and usually a giraffe texture has these like big patches that almost look like little maps of countries kind of if you look at them. So we're just going to do those, put those in the square, just random shapes with a certain amount of distance between each one. They shouldn't be to close then again they shouldn't be too far and fill that in. So that is the texture of a giraffe. Next we're going to do the texture of a zebra. So we're going to take this one and we're just going to draw lines and they're going to come wide from the top and get narrow as they come down and you fill these in obviously so you can have that depth to it. And just bring that back up, fill that in. There that goes and if you want you can go on the outline of it with a smaller one. There and there and we just tighten that up and there you have it. Now our next one we're going to do is like a cheetah so these look like little paw prints actually kind of. And they're like little patches as well. Sometimes they have like little dots inside of them and, little dots and so forth and you fill those in. Get where I'm going? Sometimes they look like you know, paw prints and so forth. And that's like a cheetah. There we go. Last but not least we have a tiger. So these are like, they're like the triangles and they come to points and you fill these in like tiger stripes. And so forth. So you draw that, fill that in and so forth. And as we sum up this, you pretty much get the idea. I'm Chris and this is how you draw animal textures.
