About This Class


Learn how to create Majestic Creatures! This time around, learn How to Draw Dogs

This Class is suited for any level of Drawing, either if you want to up your Character and Creature Design skills or to learn some of the basics.

We'll be covering a lot of the principles of Drawing, from Sketching, to Inking to Coloring.


For the Class you'll need either a Pencil + Piece of Paper or a Drawing Tablet + Drawing Software of your choice!

I'll be using Manga Studio with my drawing tablet but you're free to use whatever you feel more used to since the important thing to do here is just practice. 

I want you to have fun drawing Dogs so I'll be splitting the class in several shorter videos and I want you to improve by creating! Not just watching how to draw dogs.


At the end of this class you'll be able to create ANY Dog you want in whatever pose you want, we'll be covering a few breeds and 3 Main poses for each:

  • How to Draw A Corgi Dog;
  • How to Draw a Saint Bernard;
  • How to Draw a Dalmatian

These Dogs will be drawn in Front, Back and Side View each time, so you can get a nice feeling of the whole 3d aspect of this amazing Animal.

I'm excited to help you learn how to Draw Dogs, so let's get started.

Can't wait to see you in Class!
