Hello, my name is Ray. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you real quick how to illustrate a bloodhound. Now a bloodhound is like any other quadruped or any other type of animal that you're drawing. They're made up of basic spheres, cubes and cylinder heads and all you have to do is utilize these three things and manipulate them to get the picture that you want. So with a bloodhound let's say I'm starting off with the head, the best way to do that, the thing that differentiates a bloodhound from most other type of dogs are the brow. The brow is very pronounced and kind of heart shaped and what you would have here is put in the eyes real quick. And now let's say you want to do the nose, that's another big point of a bloodhound so we draw the nose. The other thing that differentiates a bloodhound from most dogs are the jowls. The jowls kind of just hang down and I'm doing it now in a very cartoony fashion but the jowls of the animal pretty much just hang down and pretty much the same with the ears. The ears are very generally shaped and they hang down. Now as far as the body is concerned, like you're doing with any quadruped, is that you're basically utilizing spheres, cubes and cylinder heads and what a dog's body is is basically one huge cylinder head and you can illustrate that like so as a cylinder. And when you're doing the tail that's one long cylinder as well, just more connected, more wavy, that sort of thing. The legs themselves, same thing, made up of basic cylinder heads all connected, going to an end point, like let's say a circle for the paw, just being very general right here. Okay, now let's say we're going to basically draw this dog sitting down. Okay, now what you want to do after you do a general drawing like this you want to get rid of your construction lines. Any time you're erasing construction lines in a drawing you basically, you're working with pencil, you have a basically general idea of where the lines are so you can just pretty much draw over them even after you've erased them to give it a more solid look. Okay, and you want to fill it out so that you get the idea. But that's basically it. This is a general drawing of a bloodhound and that's how you do that. So this is basic drawing of a bloodhound.
