Tips for Drawing Animals

  • Use a good high resolution reference where you can clearly see all the details of the animal.
  • Always start with a sketch on which you build your animal drawing. It doesn’t matter if you work with pencils, colored pencils, ink, watercolors, or anything else.
  • Pay close attention to the different skin textures, skins, scales, feathers, etc. of the animal as you draw. You can always practice drawing unfamiliar things separately in advance on a piece of paper or in your sketchbook.
