Hi. My name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a Rat Terrier. These little dogs are like Jack Russels but a little bit smaller. We're going to start with basic shapes which is a circle, small circle for the body. Bring the line across.And this guy's a little bit skinny so we can make this rib cage a bit longer and bring this line down for the legs. From the back of this circle, follow this line all the down and a really skinny leg. Little tiny paws can be little triangles or little circles, however you want to do it. And the same with this leg behind it, like so. Now, they're really skinny so we don't actually have to put much meat on them at all. The little tail is like a little oval coming out the backside. The same with the front legs, but we don't have to go so high. There's a little bit here, these are more straight. Little paw. And the same with the back, nice and simple. Now, for the head, a little circle and like a little triangle that's been curved coming out, with a rounded nose, little mouth, almond shape for the eye that we can color in total. And then attach the neck all the way through. I'm just going to make this a little bit more skinny. Erase all of your working lines on the inside because we don't need those any more. And then finally some really big ears, just triangles on the top of his head. A couple triangles on the inside to show some detail. Take away our working lines and then give him some color. They're a mixture of black and white and some tan as well. You can put patches wherever you like. So, I'm going to give him a big black back patch. Shade underneath to make it look a bit more 3D. And there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw a Rat Terrier.
