How to Draw a Pig

Artist: Dawn / January 21, 2008

Step 1.

You will start out by drawing two shapes, one for the head and another for the body. You will then add the leg guides and the feet guides.

Step 2.

Now start sketching out the face. Draw the snout of the pigs nose first then sketch the mouth and the pigs actual nose. Then draw the head and move to step three.

Step 3.

You will sketch in the ears which are floppy, then sketch in the creases on the snout and color in the nostril holes.

Step 4.

In this step you will draw out the void eyes, then add the creases and wrinkles on the neck. Add the lashes and move to step five.

Step 5.

Pigs are dirty animals when they play in mud, but when they are clean they are pretty sturdy animals. Draw the front leg and then draw the pig's hoof. Add the nails and then add some shading at the crease of the arm.

Step 6.

Draw the other front leg and hoof, then add detailing on the nail and along the leg.

Step 7.

In this step you will draw the lining to form the shape of the body which includes the back, butt and hind leg. Add the toes too.

Step 8.

Draw the other back leg and hoof, then move to step nine.

Step 9.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw the swirl tail and then erase your mistakes.

Step 10.

That's it, you are all done. Color in your pig.

Description: Oink, Oink, that is the sound this animal makes, and I think you all know what I’m talking about. Today I am going to teach you guys "how to draw a pig", step by step. Even though I think pigs are one of the ugliest animals around, I still have sympathy and respect for them. The potbelly pig is quite larger than the average farm pig, so larger that and adult can reach the same size as a medium sized dog. The only difference is, they have a dense body structure which makes them capable of weighing as high as 300 pounds. There are little differences that this breed has over other pigs other then their size, the ears are pointed up and they have a straight tail opposed to a short curly tail. Now an interesting fact about the potbelly pig is that, they are the same species as a farm pig and a wild boar, so that means they can totally be crossbred with either or of the two. Although pigs look dumb, they are actually quite smart which makes owning one quite challenging. Actor George Clooney owned a potbelly pig named Max, but unfortunately he died in 2006. When you own one of these animals, you definitely have to proof up your house as you would for a baby or toddler. They learn to get into anything and everything, so if you’re considering to own one of these pigs make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into. Males are not neutered are labeled as boars, the sterile ones are called barrows, and the females are always called gilts. This is a fun tutorial that will show you "how to draw a pig". All you need is patience, a sheet of paper, and a pencil to start you on your way. The instructions are simple to follow so learning the technique to draw a pig will be a breeze. I will see you later with another fascinating online tutorial.
