How to draw African wild dog. Learn to draw an African wild dog step by step images along with easy to follow instruction. The African wild dog, also called Cape hunting dog or painted dog, typically roams the open plains and sparse woodlands of sub-Saharan Africa. These long-legged canines have only four toes per foot, unlike other dogs, which have five toes on their forefeet. The dog’s Latin name means “painted wolf,” referring to the animal’s irregular, mottled coat, which features patches of red, black, brown, white, and yellow fur. Each animal has its own unique coat pattern, and all have big rounded ears.
In this tutorial, you will follow step by step drawing from simple geometry shape into a full body of African Wild Dog. Most of animals and creatures are different in shapes and forms depending on their families. I usually observe the animal shape and form then break it down into simple shape so it is easier to draw. The best way to approach the drawing is identify simple shapes within the body. It will help to define the main parts of each animal by breaking it down.
African wild dogs hunt in formidable, cooperative packs of 6 to 20 (or more) animals. Larger packs were more common before the dogs became endangered. Packs hunt antelopes and will also tackle much larger prey, such as wildebeests, particularly if their quarry is ill or injured. The dogs supplement their diet with rodents and birds.
