Tips For Coloring Basset Hound
What colors should I use for a Basset Hound coloring page?
Basset Hounds are usually tricolored (black, white, and tan) or bicolor (lemon and white), but they can also be red and white. Their coats have a smooth and shining quality. Basset hounds also have deep-set brown or hazel eyes and their ears and skin flaps often a bit darker than the rest of their body. Use these colors to represent a Basset Hound realistically.
How can I add more detail and realism to my Basset Hound coloring?
To add detail, keep in mind the Basset Hound’s main features. They have very long ears that reach beyond the tip of the nose when drawn forward. The skin is loose and elastic, especially around the head, where it forms wrinkles. Also, they sport distinct facial expressions, so pay attention to areas around the eyes and mouth.
Are there any remarkable features of the Basset Hound I should pay attention to while coloring?
Yes, the Basset Hound has very short legs relative to its body size; this is due their type of dwarfism. They also have more bone per pound than any other breed. The tail is carried somewhat high, in a curve over the back. Don’t forget about their extremely long ears and loose, wrinkly skin!
Can you provide some interesting facts about the Basset Hound that I could incorporate into my art?
Sure, Basset Hounds are one of six breeds recognized by the AKC as scent hounds. Their sense of smell is incredible, surpassed only by the Bloodhound, and they were originally bred for hunting small game. Basset Hounds are also known to be very vocal dogs. Including these elements in your artwork could make it more unique and representative of the breed.
