STEP 1. Okay I just wanna say that even though the finished colored drawing looks difficult to draw, it really isn't. The coloring and drawing of the German Shepherd are totally different and you can color, shade and detail the dog any way you want. First start this step with a round circle for the head and include the facial guidelines and the shapes of the eyes, nose and part of the mouth. Next draw out the shape of the front part of the dog or the chest which is also a round shape. After those two primary shapes are drawn out you can add the guidelines for the legs and paws.   STEP 2. The next thing you will need to start doing is sketching out the Shepherd facial definition. Start with the beginning lines for his pointed erect ears. Next sketch out the shape of his narrow face and go all the way around as seen here. You will next sketch out the line for his muzzle and draw another line for the mouth or his bottom lip. You will now sketch in the two brow lines as well as start sketching and shaping his front and hind legs.   STEP 3. As you can see by the time you are finished with this step your German Shepherd will start looking more like the dog you are trying to draw. You will finish off the lining for the ears and sketch in the tongue and detail the mouth more as you can see. Detail and define his face a bit and begin the jagged sketching for the fluff or fur. Define the left side of his body a bit, and then begin working on his paws by sketching in his toes and some nails on the right front paw.   STEP 4. Okay this will be your last step of sketching and drawing. You will detail the ears with another line that is slightly curved and then sketch in the pupils as well as shade them in. Draw in the nostril holes. Detail the face with some light sketch lines and then finish off his body by sketching in the right side of the neck and the hind quarters. Fluff up his chest and sketch in his busy tail. Finish off his front and hind left paws with some toes and nails and then draw in the rest of the right leg. Erase all the visible lines and then move down yonder.   STEP 5. This is your completed image and sketch. Your drawing should look like or resemble the one you see above. All you have left to do is shade, detail, of color him in if you like. That will end this fun tutorial on how to draw a German Shepherd dog step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
