Description: Well, today is a new day and with this new day comes new drawing tutorials. I will start by showing you guys "how to draw a warthog step by step”. Warthogs are probably one of the more disgusting looking land animals I have ever seen. These animals are part of the same family of the domestic pig. The difference between the warthog and pig is simple, for one they look much different in appearance. Warthogs have a more hearty looking body shape, and they have long flat looking snouts and heads. Why are these animals named the way they are? Well, that's easy, they really do have warts. All over the head of a warthog is covered with warts that are actually protective bumps. So these bumps may look grotesque, but in all reality they are nothing more than protective glands. These huge hogs also have a total of four sharp tusks that is usually used for protection. They are mainly bald, but they do have spurts of hair on top of their heads and some even have manes on their backs. These hogs are commonly hunted in the wild, and even though there are many stories about how mean and vial these animals are, they live their lives as grazers amongst the woods they live in. The diet for a warthog is the same as a deer, grass and plants. On occasion they will also use their snouts to dig with in order to brig up some tasty roots or bulbs. Pigs and warthogs are of the same family as I said previously, but what sets these two beasts aside is the speed of the warthog. If you approach a hog by surprise, they will run their hearts out reaching top speeds of thirty miles per hour. Another cool thing that these animals are capable of is the ability to go without water for long periods of time, I'm talking like several months without a drop of water. But you have to take into the fact that they eat grass and roots, as well as other plant life witch already contains water. So basically they get their water from the foliage that they feast on. The weight of a warthog varies between one hundred twenty, to two hundred fifty pounds, now that is a lot of pig! Anyways I think you will like this tutorial that will show you how easy it is to learn "how to draw a warthog”. This lesson also has some good educational information on these animals, which makes learning about them even more fun. I will be back later with more lessons for you all in a bit. Peace, and happy drawing!
