how to draw a basset hound
Start by drawing an oval rounded shape for the nose.
Draw a curved line extending from the nose to create the snout.
Draw the ears. Basset hounds are known for their long, floppy ears. Draw these hanging down from the head, making sure they are quite lengthy and have a bit of a wave to them.
Start with the eyes. Draw a small oval shape for the eye, and make sure it has a slight tilt to give the face character.
Sketch the body. Start with the neck, which should flow from the head, and then draw a robust, barrel-shaped body. Remember, basset hounds are quite stocky, so the body should be wide.
Draw the hind leg connecting to the body.
Add the legs. These should be short but strong, with big paws. The breed’s legs are notably short compared to their body size.
Draw the other side of the ear.
Finish with the tail. It should be long and slightly curved, emerging from the backside of the body.
Add details to the body of the basset hound.
The cartoon basset hound is ready! Color it with shades of brown and skin color.
