Step 1.

Firstly, begin with the simple guidelines for the simple pig. Start with a large circle for the head and an enforcing circle behind the base of the head. This will hold up the details for the body. Don't forget the guidelines.

Step 2.

To make things simple, start with an outwards cone that caves over the facial guidelines. This will be the little snout that this cute pig beholds. Prepare to be vanquished by it's penetrating cuteness!

Step 3.

Start off this step by drawing the floppy ears and the eyes. Draw the right eye close to the side of it's face. Make sure it's lined up with the guidelines for accuracy. Don't forget to sketch the cute snout! If only pigs were this adorable...Once yo   

Step 4.

This step is very simple. Draw the pupils for those void eyes. Sketch the eyebrows and then the inner ear. See how cute he's turning out?

Step 5.

To make things easier, draw the body bit by bit. This means sketch out the rear and feet for the pig. You don't want to get too detailed with this little guy or else it'll be more complex. If you feel you have the skill, draw some hooves for him.

Step 6.

Finish off the tutorial by drawing the rest of the body. Under no circumstances, do NOT forget to draw the curly tail! See how the tail adds the ultimate awesome touch? Once you've finished all of these touch ups, you're totally done!

Step 7.

Here's what you're finished drawing should outcome to. Make sure you have all the elements of the face and body proportional. Look at those curious eyes! This character would suit any barn house scene. Well folks, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Do
