How To Draw Cartoon Pig

Let’s draw a cartoon pig. This time I picked this pose but it is in fact easy and simple. The only challenge you may encounter is the head and the face.

If you can make the head just right, then drawing the rest of the body is really simple.

If you observe this picture well enough, you’ll notice that the head is the most complex part.

The rest: belly, legs and hands….all are easy….even if you can’t capture them exactly as on this picture, you cannot make it wrong :) So go ahead, take your pencil and let’s begin :)

Before we begin the drawing observe well the picture. See how this piggy is leaning towards the wall. The body is erected but leaned to a side, not straight up.

Observe well the picture. Draw a prolonged egg-shaped oval and a circle overlapping each other, as you see on the picture. Circle is the head and the oval will be the body.

Just draw these ovals and circles very roughly. It is not necessary to make it by one single pencil line. Remember you are human not a robot. Often less perfect is better than perfect one. So relax and take it easy.

Over the head circle draw two perspective lines, as you see on the picture. The horizontal will be the guideline for placing the eyes and the crossing point indicates the position of the nose, as we will see later.

Place the eyes on the horizontal line as you see on this picture. Now, use the horizontal perspective line as a guideline and simply prolong the oval as you see on the picture. This larger oval will be the guideline for the cartoon pig fat neck area.

Begin from the crossing point of the perspective lines on the head. Draw the nose together with opened mouth as you see on this picture.

Draw all four legs…or I should say, two legs and two hands, since this pig is standing straight in human-like position :) One hand is leaned toward the wall and another is stretched out in the air as if this piggy would like to say: “no problem” :)

Legs are crossed and that creates a self-confident expression as if everything would be possible to this piggy :) Draw the contours of the ears.

Good! Now you have a very rough outline of your cartoon piggy character.

You can begin erasing the unnecessary guidelines and other graphite pencil dust. Observe this picture and do it carefully not to erase the real contours. Use pencil-type-eraser as necessary, so that you can erase narrow spaces between the lines. After you have erased all graphite pencil cluster, your piggy should look much clearer.

Begin working out the head and facial features. Area around eyes, folds on the fat neck, the mouth and the tongue. Notice that the initial lower oval on the face is now slightly modified. Do it in similar fashion.

Continue on working out the hands and the legs as you see on the picture. This should be very easy because you already have the basic outer contours. Enlarge the belly and add the tail.

Darken the eyes, refine the facial features, the ears etc. Erase the remaining pencil dusts if still remains any. Draw the corner floor line and the shade on the wall and the floor as you see on this picture. Now you have a nice coloring page.

Take a softer pencil B4 or B6 and RE-draw all contours again so that your cartoon pig should look very clear. Darken the inside-mouth area. You can also choose to color this piggy if you want. Play with it.
