Pugs are adorable, funny little dogs, so it’s no surprise that they inspire many people to draw them. But can a pug’s beauty ever truly and accurately be captured? Probably not, but we can certainly try! If a pug is your muse, check out this tutorial on how to draw your pug.
A big thank you to artist and designer Andrea Cáceres, who has drawn hundreds of pugs and who will be teaching us how to draw a pug in just a few, easy steps. Be sure to check out her website for loads of great dog stuff.
But first, we asked Andrea a few questions about dogs, her subjects of choice.
1. Why do you love drawing dogs?
2. Do you have a favorite dog breed?
3. What makes pugs hard and/or easy to draw?
Draw three dots. These will be your eyes and nose.
Add in eyebrows and a nose wrinkle. Feel free to add in a wrinkle or two on the face!
Draw what appears to be a mouth, and connect it to the nose. This will be the start of your pug’s jowls.
Round out the jowls and connect them to your nose wrinkle. Don’t forget to add whisker dots.
Draw two slanted triangles for ears.
Draw three lines to form the head.
Draw a line sloping down on the left side of the pugs face. Now you’re starting the body!
Add two legs.
Draw a curved line that will be the pug back and butt.
Draw a hind leg. You’re almost done!
Add in a curly tail.
Voila! You’ve got a pug!
Feel free to add color, or jazz up your pug with personal features.
Here’s an animation of all 11 steps.
