Hi, my name is Daisy, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a detailed collie. So we're going to start with the body shapes. Basic shapes that begin with a couple circles. They're going to connect with a curved line above. Let's just keep this straight because they have a lot of hair that we're going to fill in. The legs, let's put in just basic lines for the moment. And then a smaller circle for the head that comes out to a pointed snout. It's kind of like a triangle that's a lot more curvy. So going to fill in this neck and add detail now. So I like to draw hair and fur just by using the marker or the pencil and wisping the lines out. So you flick your wrist. This on has its tail down a little bit so we can continue down this way. Same with the front. Just lots of little wisps. And this is how I'm going to fill out the legs. Rather than drawing more lines, I will flick out little wispy hair. And then her paws. Just come down like little ovals at the front of their feet. More wisps all over the place. Same with the back legs. Little paws. Like ovals. Or C shapes, it depends how you see them. Some more detail for the back leg so we can see the back thigh muscle. And then to make it even more detailed, we can put a lot of hair through the body. Make long strands because the hair is really long. Same with the neck. Come all the way down to the front. That's really starting to look more like a collie with its furry furry neck. They have little furry ears. And then small almond shaped eyes. A little black nose, a line for its mouth, and more fur. Now if you want to draw the tail out a little bit, just continue your wispy lines, flicking that wrist, and flick it out. And there we go. My name is Daisy, and that's how you draw a detailed Collie.
