How to Draw Realistic Dogs using Soft Pastels & Pastel Pencils | In-Depth Tutorial

Shaymus Art double show cocker spaniel pet portrait, realistic dog animal drawings commissions artist

If you’re looking for a tutorial to help & show you how to draw realistic dog fur, I have created this lesson just for you. The Show Cocker Spaniel dogs in this double portrait have both short and medium length hair, and because there are 2 dogs in this portrait, that means that I’ll explain to you how to draw a realistic dog twice.

This Patreon lesson will follow one of my commissioned portrait artworks. The commissioner of this double portrait has kindly given me permission to create this tutorial and for my students on Patreon to view and use the reference photo for the purpose of this tutorial. As well as following the reference photo on the screen, I have also attached it to this post for you to download if you wish to do so.
