This article follows on from the previous one on ‘How to draw someone walking a dog’.
You can see in the above image that the dog is walking nicely along at heel, but let’s now look at three other dog-walking poses that can add a bit more variety and action into scenes.
You can see in this one that the dog is now straining on the lead, perhaps wanting to shoot off towards whatever exciting thing is going on ahead, perhaps dragging his owner after him.
You can now see with the help of the red lines how the dog leaning forwards is emphasised - his whole body is urging him in that direction.
The nightmare situation for many dog owners - their pet learning up at someone.
Again, the red lines show the motion of the dog, and the woman leaning back trying to counter-act.
A very cartoony pose, this one! The dog is now in hot pursuit of something, and the owner is along for the ride - or should that be flight?
Absolutely everyone in the scene is moving in the same direction.
