Hi, my name is Erik. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a real jackal. Okay let's start with the head here, just kind of an outline of it. Draw a little bit of a curvature for the neck, come down here, draw this curvature. Now they kind of have pronounced chests and they tend to be, a jackal it kind of looks like a fox or a wolf but with larger ears. Let's give it large ears, whoops, okay, let's see, one, two, three, now with the ears and the legs, they're about three heads tall, one, two, three and about three wide. So, let's bring down the curvature of the neck and the shoulder comes up, rounds here. Let's give it a little bit of a nose and let's see, bring it up here, give it its face, give it its eyes right here, whiskers, ear here, okay now let's bring this neck down, here, let's give it its leg, a little dog paw. Okay then bring this back. Now they kind of have very pronounced ribcages and lungs. This comes up around, give it its leg rounded, draw it like a dog, put a foot here, kind of an action pose for it, bring this around give it another dog foot. Okay, bring this down, leg, bring this up. This looks a little bit too rigid right here for a leg so let's put this there, bring this down, let's bring its tail down here. Okay then let's work on the face here, it's a little bit more of a rounded face then what I drew it with, then sharpen that, sharpen this, round the back of it, shoulder blades. Now let's give it some line work, cool. And that is how you draw a jackal.
