Part 1 – Drawing a Dog’s Eye

Part 2 – Shading the Eye

Now that we’re all caught up, lets get on with the lessons!

In the previous lesson, we shaded in the pupil and made it look shinny. Now it’s time to fill in the are around the eye.

In this lesson, we are going to draw in the fur around the eye. This should really bring the drawing together and gives it a lot of dimension.
