Draw African Wild Dog 10

Step 10: Use the small circle as a guide to draw the rest of the muzzle under the nose. Using quick, short strokes, draw a furry line under the nose that extends up toward the left eye. Draw another furry line underneath for the African wild dog's chin and lower jaw. Draw a few lines for whiskers on the top part.

Step 11: Use the arcs on the African wild dog's head as guides to draw the ears. Darken the arcs and give them a more angular shape. Use quick, short strokes to represent the fur within them.

Step 13: Using the lines as guides, draw the African wild dog's front legs. Draw lightly at first to get the shape of the leg right. The African wild dog is the second largest canid behind only the wolf, so the legs should be tall and lean. The base or top part of the leg should be thicker. The foot bends forward at the joint, and the bottom should be big for the paw. Darken it using quick, short strokes. Use the other line to draw the leg on the other side the same way. Draw a few curved lines within the paw to represent the toes.

Step 14: Use the other two lines as guides to draw the African wild dog's hind legs the same way as the front legs. The hind legs are thicker at the base and angle back more. Draw lightly at first. When you're happy with what you have, darken it using quick, short strokes. Don't forget to draw the toes! Finish up the leg on the other side using the same technique.
