Before you learn how to draw A Greyhound Dog, did you know?

Back in the day, humans used the greyhounds for two purposes: racing and hunting.  These days, they are more popular as pets. This breed is very tall, slim, fast, and agile. Plus, it’s quite intelligent and is considered to be one of the smartest dogs to live on the planet.

Those long legs are incredibly strong, and, thanks to the flexible spine bones and the overall slim build, these dogs can run as fast as 40 miles per hour, which is, indeed, very impressive. And, they are capable of keeping that speed for a very long time. That is exactly why they are among the best hunters out there.

Some Things To Keep In Mind…

These tutorials are only here to guide you. Your drawing does not need to look "identical" to mine.

Start with rough but light pencil strokes that you can work into the shapes you want.

Once you have your rough drawing completed, go over it in a darker stroke for your final drawing.

Add shading and/or color to complete if desired.

Using this technique you will be able to draw anything after some practice... even without following step-by-step tutorials.
