To draw this cartoon Pug step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Lightly sketch two small circles for the pug's eyes. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. The dog's eyes should be spaced out a bit. When you get the shapes and sizes right, darken the lines. Inside each eye, draw two tiny circles to represent glare or highlights. Shade in the eyes but don't overlap the shapes of the tiny glare circles. Leave a small sliver along the bottom of each eye blank to separate the pupils.
Step 2: Between the eyes, closer to the left side, draw a small oval for the pug's nose. Shade the nose except for a smaller oval at the top that represents highlight.
Step 3: Add the pug's muzzle by first drawing a curved line above the nose. Continue to draw this line around the nose. Curve the bottom part up so that it points toward the nose. The whole shape should be similar to an upside-down heart. Draw a small line under the dog's nose.
Step 4: Draw a small, curved line under the muzzle for the pug's bottom lip. Add a small, curved line over the nose and each eye for a wrinkle and the eyebrows.
Step 5: Draw a short, curved line to the left of the pug's muzzle for the cheek. Draw a longer line that curves high above the eyes for the top of the dog's head. Sketch lightly at first and only darken the lines when you get the shapes right. The cheek line should curve at the bottom, toward the muzzle. The top line should stretch above the eye on the right.
