This cartoon pig’s face looks very cute especially when the color is pink. Did you know that newborn piglets learn to run to their mothers’ voices, and can recognize their own names by the time they’re 2 weeks old? This animal is very friendly, they have been known to man for many centuries.

Let’s get down to this step-by-step drawing tutorial of a cute pig’s face.

Step 1: Draw the Head

Now, let’s begin your tutorial by drawing the head of the pig. This is very easy since you will just draw a big circle in the middle of your paper. If you have a hard time drawing the perfect circle, then you can find an object to trace a big perfect circle for the head.

Step 2: Add the Eye Guide and the Nose

This time we will help your pig to see the beautiful surrounding that is made by God. Sketch the eye guide by drawing a small circle on the left portion of the head. Then for the nose, draw a small rectangle on the left side of the head. Make sure that the rectangle will go beyond the head.

Let’s add details to the nose and to the eye of the pig. The nose of the pig is always round, to do this draw a vertical oblong shape on the bottom part of the nose. Be sure that the oblong shape will go beyond the nose. For the eyeball, draw a shaded circle inside the eye guide. 

Step 4: Remove Extra and Add Details

Let’s clean the nose by erasing the extra lines. Erase all the extra lines inside the head. Then erase the line that separates the nose and the head. For as the nose looks good let’s draw a short slanting line beside the nose. Then, erase the line inside the oblong shape on the nose portion.

Step 5: Draw the Ears and the Mouth

Now, let’s draw the left ear of your pig. Draw an inverted triangle shape on the upper portion of the head. Make sure that the triangle will go beyond the upper portion of the pig’s head. They add two small circles to the nose of the pig. After that draw a curve line under the eyes of the pig. This will serve as the mouth of the pig.

Step 6: Add Ears

Step 7: Remove lines
