Proud, noble, and gentle, the Newfoundland is a dog with a rich, strong history – and they have the added advantage of being amazing working dogs. Looking to celebrate this wonderful breed? Then let’s bring them to life through the power of art!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by using a black fineliner pen to draw an angled line in the right of your page. Bring another angled line down from the bottom of this, and then curve this across to the left, adding a downwards “flick” as you reach the end.
Add a small “c” shape just inside the right curve, and fill in the bottom half of this with the black pen to create the nose of your pooch.
Add a curved line to the top, heading up, across, and then down towards the bottom left-hand corner of your page…
And then continue this line down, across to the left, and curving gently down towards the bottom corner.
Next, bring a line down from the bottom of the nose. This should be slightly jagged at the top, and then curve down to the bottom of the page. Add a slight “point” to the end for the front paw…
And then add a long, “reverse L” shape to the left of this for the second leg and paw.
Bring a jagged line up from the back of this…
And then add a curved horizontal line to create a tummy.
Add a wavy line to the end of this, angled at a diagonal, and add a “flick” to the end.
Bring a line across the bottom for a paw, and then curve the line up and in towards the right.
Now, add a jagged line to the line on the left, creating a waggy tail!
Add another leg just in front of the one at the back…
And then add a wavy “V” shape just behind the nose for your dog’s ear.
Now, add a small oval shape in front of this, and add a small black ring to the right of this for a cute eye.
Use a thicker black pen to add a curve below the nose for a smile, and then use the black fineliner to add a smattering of dots above this.
Now, use the black fineliner to bring a jagged line across from the end of the mouth, down the chest, and ending at the front leg.
Continue this line down the edge of the back leg…
And then add another patch just above the nose.
Draw a jagged line from the muzzle to the front leg.
Now, add a long, thin patch across the center of the tummy…
And then add another jagged stripe above this.
Now, add a jagged line above the one you just drew, and bring this across and down the back legs.
At the end of this line, cone across and back up and to the right…
And then add another patch below this!
Now, add a patch to the tail of your pooch…
And then add a jagged line all across the back.
Continue this across, zigzagging up and down to reach the ear at the front…
And then add a tiny patch inside the ear!
Add another jagged line all down the front leg…
And then curve this across and back up the back of the leg.
Return to the “pointed” shape that you have created just behind the neck, and join the two sides together with another jagged line…
Before adding a similar design to the head and face of your hound.
Grab a gray pen, and fill in the front of the chest and leg, the central section of the front left, and the bottom of the tummy. Then, use the same gray for the outside of the back leg, the shape emerging from the top of this, across to the right, the center of the tail, and the section around the eyes.
Now, use a brown pen for the rest of the left leg and the chest, the bottom of the tummy, the back left leg, and the inner layer of the right back leg.
Grab a dark brown pen to complete the legs, and add color to the “point” behind the neck, the top of the head, the nose, the ear, and the spot just below this.
Use a light brown pencil to add color to the eye…
And then a black pen to outline the whole of the dog.
Fill in the remaining sections using the bold black pen…
And neaten up the outline to complete your pooch.
And just like that, you have your very own colorful Newfoundland pup to enjoy! Why not head off and learn more about this breed – their history is truly fascinating!
