Drawing African Wild Dog Fur

Drawing African Wild Dog Fur

African Wild Dogs have one of the most unusual fur coats in the animal kingdom, resembling military camouflage more than anything found in nature. Fortunately, there is massive variation in the patterns of each Wild Dog so you can’t really go wrong. That said, it is still quite difficult to draw the patterns in the fur whilst still capturing the actual fur texture as well. This tutorial will demonstrate a simple technique that produces realistic looking Wild Dog fur.

How to Draw Realistic Animal Horns – Buffalo Study

How to Draw Realistic Animal Horns – Buffalo Study

This tutorial explains how to draw buffalo horns, probably the most difficult of all animal horns to draw. The reason buffalo horns are so difficult is because they have a wide range of textures – some areas are very smooth and others are rough and have deep cracks and ridges. These variations make drawing a natural and realistic looking horn very difficult.
