This lesson is on how to draw a bulldog. It is the first in a series of dog drawing tutorials. This tutorial will show you how to draw the gruff yet playful bulldog.
Our bulldog drawing begins with few simple guidelines. His torso will be an oval and the head will be a circle. Don’t worry about making these perfect since these lines will be erased later.
The first thing we will draw is the bull dogs nose. We will start from there and move outwards to the rest of his face and body.
Draw the nose in the circle but off-center up and to the left.
Draw the top of his snout curving down from above his nose.
Draw the rest of the bulldogs characteristic jowls. These are the bulldogs most defining feature and make them easy to tel apart from other dogs. Erase the guidelines as you go along.
Draw his chin and a few lines below it to create his neck.
Draw the cheek.
Draw the top of the bulldogs head and his ears.
Draw his eyes. Then add lines around them to create the curves and folds of his brow and forehead.
Erase the remaining guidelines. Draw his the two front legs.
The body will be stocky and wide. This is what gives the bulldog his powerful and intimidating appearance. Despite their gruff appearance bulldogs are actually very loving and affectionate dogs.
Draw the rest of his body and his hind leg.
Finish up by drawing the bulldogs other hind leg and his paws.
