How to Draw a Labrador Retriever Dog – Narrated, step by step


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto and
today we will draw a labrador dog. We begin by marking the top and
bottom of the drawing… so that we don´t end up, we have
the dog off the paper [laughter]. Then we do a circle for the head
that will be one fourth of the total size, of the total height. And we draw the overall silhouette. A simplified silhouette like
an envelop of the body. We mark the second and third
quarters of the size of the head and draw an oval which will get
to that third point… and then the front legs. Like this. This is the basic structure
obviously, this dog will be sitting. Now we can begin drawing more detail. We describe the silhouette
of the head a little bit better, with the ears, across as guidelines the nose and hanging lips. We mark the eyes of the horizontal line
and then draw them. The labrador is one of the most popular
breeds of dogs. And that is because they are
very intelligent, high spirited and loyal companions. They are easy going
and they love to play especially in the water! [laughter] I erase the nose as it should be
a little bit bigger and slightly to the side, to the right
since the whole head is just slightly turned. We refine the line, correcting the shape
a little bit and draw the legs with more detail. And we clean up the drawing with the eraser. Good! And the tail. It´s a happy tail and a happy dog [laughter]. I erase the ear that is in our right
to make it a little bit bigger. By the way I will upload a long version
of this tutorial to my Patreon account. And let´s refine the line and the detail. I have been doing the sketch with pencil
so that I can do any corrections as needed. Now with the eraser, I lighten up the line
a little bit, and I will go over it with a pen. It´s a beautiful Kaweco Pen. We outline the eyes and make a tiny circle
that we will leave white for the reflection of the eyes. And we do the shading with short
parallel strokes, that we cross as needed, to make them darker. That´s hatching
and crosshatching. Let´s draw a rose since labradors
are always so eager to please their masters. The area under the head, since it is
in shadow, will be darker. This one is a nice and fancy pen,
but it is after all a ball pen… and you can achieve the same result
with a regular ballpoint. Although this one fills, so nice! I´m trying to create the light and shadow
with the area between the legs, much darker for example and showing some of the muscles and skin folds. Under the ears, should also be a dark shadow. And let´s draw the petals of the rose. Good! The list of materials is in the description
under the video. We are almost there, I just want to add
some last shading to make it more realistic! Showing some of the folds of the skin because of the anatomy. And it´s ready! If you enjoyed it please give it
