Learn how to draw a great looking Husky with easy, step-by-step drawing instructions, and video tutorial.
By following the simple steps, you too can easily draw a beautiful Husky.
Huskies are working dogs, which means they were bred to do certain jobs along with their human counterparts.
Huskies were first raised in Siberia to serve as companions, guards, and sled dogs. Today, many people keep these gentle and intelligent dogs as pets.
The husky is famous for its ability as a sled racing dog. Up to 16 dogs are typically hitched to the sled in tandem, two in each row.
In addition to racing, dog sleds are still used as a means of transportation in the snowy Arctic.

Sled dogs have been acclaimed in popular culture, such as in the animated film Balto, the true story of the dogs who delivered vital medicine to Nome, Alaska; Iron Will, another true story of a young musher who needed to win the race to feed his family; and Snow Dogs, a fictional comedy about a dentist who reconnects with his roots.

Notice the way the line dips into the nose and onto the shoulder. Then, draw the tail. Use a series of curved and overlapping lines to sketch the curly tail.
