How to Draw a Husky Face
- Sketch the head.
Use jagged lines to create fur texture on the sides. Husky’s head is noticeably wider at the bottom than at the top. Try to convey this in your drawing.
- Sketch the ears of the husky.
The ears are triangular in shape and directed upwards. You can use the position of your ears to convey your dog’s emotions. For example, by lowering them, you will make the drawn husky sadder.
- Sketch the border of the colors.
Using jagged lines, sketch out the front of the muzzle where the color of the fur is different. The shape of this part of the drawing should partially follow the outline of the husky’s head.
- Add the elements of the face.
First draw the eyes as two ovals. Then draw the nose, and finish off the details of the face by drawing the mouth using two curved lines.
- Add some color to the husky’s face drawing.
Use different shades of gray. Add highlights to the eyes and nose. Or you can color your husky head drawing in shades of brown or beige.
