How to Create Geometric Animal Art

Creating personalized art work can really help to make a house, a home.  One of my favorite pieces on our Gallery Wall is this geometric drawing that I created to represent our beloved Cocker Spaniel, Max.  It is super easy to create your own geometric animal image!  Let me show you how…

How to Create Geometric Animal Art

First you need to start with a black and white image of your animal.  Be sure to print off something that has high contrast.  This will help you to outline and determine the shape of your image.

Trace a straight edged outline of the animal in pencil.  You can use a light table or window to see through the paper to the original picture.

Using a ruler and thin sharpie draw the outline again.  Create 3-5 dots within the outline.  These will be your points of interest.  From these draw straight lines with the ruler and sharpie to intersections on the outline and within the body of your image.  If you are unsure of this step try playing around with pencil first and tracing over your lines in sharpie when you are happy with the image.

Erase any pencil marks and you are done!  Additionally I scanned my image, boosted the contrast in Picmonkey and created this FREE Geometric Spaniel Printable.  Hooray!

I love how this print turned out!  It is one of the more subtle elements of our Gallery Wall that adds a ton of personality.
