Description: This is the main character from The Secret Life of Pets and I know I should have made a lesson on him first, but it was really hard finding a reference picture on him. Having said that, here is how to draw Max from Secret Life of Pets, step by step. I do know that Max is a terrier, he is tan and white in color and has blue doggie collar with a gold bone dog tag. Drawing Max is going to be both simple and fun. I do want to let folks know that The Secret Life of Pets will be in theaters March of 2016 so keep an eye out for movie. Adios people!
