How to Draw a Pitbull Dog


Guide lines - Let's work on drawing a ferocious pitbull dog. First, we need to lay down our basic construction guides. Using a 2H (or harder) pencil, we are going to lightly sketch in two circles. The first circle will represent the shape of the body   


Head - Now that we have our guide lines down, we can begin working on the head. Although pitbulls are friendly by nature, our pitbull is mean and ferocious! To make his expression exemplify rage, he needs to be snarling and bearing his teeth. Be sure   


Collar - To make the dog even more vicious looking, we can give it a spiked collar around it's neck. Be sure to draw the edge of the collar as a way to give it dimension, otherwise it will look like a flimsy strip of paper wrapped around the dog's ne

We can now draw in the hind legs. Again, make the legs look muscular and plant the paws far apart. Pitbulls do not always have long tails, so in this case we can assume that our dog has a short tail which we cannot see at the angle.


Now that we have our figure drawn in, this would be a good opportunity to take out a brush pen or marker, such as a Micron, and carefully trace over figure. Be sure not to accidentally trace over our guidelines from step 1. After you've inked over th   


Shadow - Establish your light source so we can begin filling in the shadows. In this case, our light source is coming from the top left of the page, a little bit in front of the dog. Add shadow on the backside of the large muscles and on the undersid   


Rendering - As a way to give the image a greater sense of depth and shadow, we can blend from light to dark by adding crosshatching with the use of a Micron marker, and feathering with the use of a brush or brush pen. Heavily crosshatch darker areas    


To finish off the illustration, let's insert a few highlights using some opaque white paint or white ink. Put a white dot in the exact same location of each eye facing the direction of our light source. The shine on the eyes will bring the image to l
