I just finished a quick sketch of a golden retriever puppy and decided to do a step-by-step slideshow to show some of my sketching technique. When I'm drawing or painting, my main goal is to go from broad and generic to defined and detailed. I try and start with a general outline gesture to place the main components of the drawing, then I work on shading and go deeper with the detail. Since this was a sketch, it's not super detailed, but I like the way it turned out and hopefully it sheds some light on my sketching technique!
