Have you always wanted to draw a pug but didn’t know where to start? Look no further because this step-by-step guide will help you draw a cute pug in no time!
- Black pen
Step 1: Basic Shapes
Start by drawing a large oval for the body and a smaller oval for the head. Connect the two ovals with a curved line to create the neck.
Step 2: Features
Sketch out the nose and mouth. Then add two circles for the eyes, and two triangles for the ears.
Step 3: Refine the Shape
Erase any extra lines and refine the basic shape of the pug using your pencil. Add a curve in the middle of each ear and sketch out the front legs with small rectangles.
Step 4: Add Details
Draw in the back legs and paws using curved lines. Use your black pen to add more details like the nose, eyes, and mouth. Add eyebrows using short brush strokes above each eye to give your pug expression.
Step 5: Shading
Add shading to give your drawing dimension. Shade the area around the eyes, nose, and mouth, and darken the ears. Add some shading to the body of the pug to give it form.
Step 6: Final Touches
Erase any pencil lines that are still visible and add any final touches to your drawing.
- Use reference images to help you understand the proportions and features of a pug.
- Start with light pencil lines, so it’s easier to erase any mistakes.
- Use your pen to darken the final lines of your drawing.
- Don’t worry about getting every detail perfect. The most critical thing is to capture the spirit and personality of the pug.
