In addition, I will show you a more simplified version of drawing a dog toy, and at the very end I will show you how to draw a cute cartoon dog with a toy bone in its teeth.

Dog toys come in many different shapes and types, but I decided to go with the most popular one, which looks like a regular bone.

In the picture, you see a large bone that has a thin middle part and large rounded joints at the ends. Therefore, in this lesson, you will draw both straight and rounded lines. Try to depict each element correctly so that in the end you get a great drawing.

The drawing is made in a very simple manner and does not have any shadows or highlights. But if you add them, you will make your dog bone drawing more dimensional.

So, the previous drawing of a dog toy looked like a real bone, but there are toys that are more sketchy, and even in color they bear little resemblance to a real bone.

The lines and steps here are roughly similar to what you could see above, but the drawing itself, as I said, will be more cartoonish. At the end, you can color your drawing of a dog toy either blue like in my primer, or any other color.
