How to Draw a Dog Bone

The type of bone typically rendered in cartoons - and in this drawing guide - is known as a long bone. Long bones are hard and dense. They give the body strength and structure and are used to help you move around. Long bones can be found in the arms, legs, wrist, ankle, and fingers. The thigh bone, or femur, is a long bone.

Long bones and filled with both yellow and red bone marrow. Red marrow produces blood cells and yellow marrow is used to store fats.

Why do we feed bones to dogs? Bones contain minerals and nutrients. They also satisfy a dog's desire to chew, which in turn helps clean their teeth. Additionally, the dog food that we feed our pets today was not invented until 1860. For thousands of years, family dogs were simply fed table scraps. This often included bones and undesirable portions of meat.

How to Draw Bulbasaur Pokémon

Bulbasaur, the Seed Pokémon, is a dual-type Grass and Poison Pokémon of Generation I. Its name is a combination of the words "bulb," referring to the plant on its back, and "dinosaur," describing its saurian appearance.

Bulbasaur first appeared in the Pokémon animated series episode entitled "Bulbasaur and the Hidden Village," in which he was defeated by Pikachu and captured by Ash.

Along with Charmander and Squirtle, Bulbasaur is one of the three starter Pokémon from which a trainer can choose on the early Pokémon games.

They are rare in the wild; most Bulbasaur are raised by Pokémon breeders for distribution to new trainers. Bulbasaur may evolve into Ivysaur at level 16, and Venusaur at level 32. Each year, many Bulbasaur gather in the Kanto region to evolve into Ivysaur during a special ceremony.

The plant on Bulbasaur's back grows from a seed that is planted there at its birth. This plant provides Bulbasaur with energy via photosynthesis, and it essential to many of Bulbasaur's fighting moves.
