We have already developed a tradition, to do the first stages of drawing schematically, then transform these elements into details of the correct form. We recommend you to mark the location of the drawing and its size with the help of cross lines. Draw two lines in the center of the sheet. Don’t press the pencil not to leave marks when the lines will be erased.
Draw an elongated oval; the cross lines must divide it into 4 equal parts.
Give a more wavy look to the straight contours of the oval, gradually giving the correct shape to the body.
Smoothly draw the hind leg of the poodle on one side of the oval. These dogs have long legs. The hind legs are slightly inclined; this is a structure of the dog’s body.
The front legs are thinner than the hind ones and they are straight.
Don’t forget to draw poodle’s feet in order it can move easily.
These decorative animals are characterized by a long and very fluffy hair. Poodles are being cut at special salons. As a rule, the hair is left on the head, on the chest, legs and tail. In the areas where the hair is cut, the contours of the body curves are clearly visible. This can be seen very well at the lower part of the body. You can visually convey this with the help of a small curved line.
Draw a long and thin neck. Then add a small oval – it will serve as the poodle’s head.
A muzzle has an elongated shape, slightly pointed. To draw it with the help of the pencil, it’s enough to erase the top of the oval-head and draw a short line inside the figure from the end.
Previously, we’ve mentioned that the poodle’s hair is long and fluffy. This allows to do interesting”haircuts” to animals. Draw an oval hair on its head. Follow the instruction carefully.
Use a compass to draw a big circle on the front part of the body. And draw a small circle on the tip of the tail which is directed upwards.
Add small circles of hair on the carpus.
The drawing is ready. It’s time to get rid of unnecessary details. Erase the auxiliary lines. It remains to draw some small details: the nose, eyes and mouth.
It remains to compare your drawing and our step by step instruction, correct inaccuracies, erase unnecessary details and do clear contours.
