Hi guys. This is Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw a realistic German shepherd. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to start off in the back with the back leg kind of going out just a little bit, the bend of the knee right here and the paw. And you bring that up just a little bit and usually the thigh of the dog is going to be a little bit thicker so you want to make sure that you leave some room there and that's his paw that's in the foreground there. Then what you're going to do is you're going to go alongside here and this is his back so you're going to bring that along and go up for the back of the neck and now underneath you're going to imagine the ribcage is right here on a dog so you've got to make sure that you leave enough room underneath for where the ribcage is going to be so you're going to bring that down in a swoop just like that, maybe his other leg is kind of in the back like this and bring that up and that's his knee, the back of his leg like that. Maybe he has his tail is a little bit down so there we've got the back. Now what I'm going to do is I'm going to do the front leg and the way that we're going to do that is just kind of go down just a little bit like this, bring a line going straight down, connect it with the paw at the bottom and out like that and then he's got the end of the chest area right here is going to be a little bit in the foreground so you're going to make sure that you can see that and the other leg is going to kind of fall just behind that front leg. We're going to bring this up here and don't ever be afraid to erase if you feel like you've taken a line a little bit too far or done something a little bit, a little bit different than what the picture is. You can definitely always change your mind and do your own thing. So I'm going to bring this up just a little bit and now German shepherds have a little bit bigger ears so I'm going to make sure that the ears are pretty big here, kind of goes up like that, follow along the head here, there's another ear and then follow the neck line and a lot of times there's a lot of folds in the neck and then we're going to do the nose and German shepherd noses are usually black and I'm going to be using a white marker of course but if you want, usually the top is just a little bit of a longer line and the bottom is a little bit more filled in. So what we're going to do is bring up this for the mouth and maybe he's got his tongue hanging out, bring that up for the nose and you've got his eyes here. And do the same thing on the other side and then you can leave some fur underneath and maybe a collar. Alright guys, and there you go, that's how you draw a realistic German shepherd. So good luck and stay creative.
