We are so proud to feature "works of art" created by the children of our fans! These children really are our future and its great that they've taken such an interest in protecting pigs or even just seeing how having a pig has impacted their view on these precious creatures. Some are these kids can use words to describe the view of pigs while others are amazing artists. If you have something your child has done and want it featured on the website, send us an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
This artist is Morgan who drew a picture of her pig Daphne by sketching it from a picture on her computer.
How to draw a pig
Draw a slightly tilted downwards oval; this will be the body. Then draw the head using a circle and a snout with a rectangle.
Draw the contours of pig thighs with square shapes, tapering to the bottom. Please note that the rear hip is the largest of all four
Draw the outline of the legs. The front legs are displayed using rectangular form, tapering towards the bottom. Each rear leg is drawn using 2 wrong squares. Note that they form an angle with the contour of the thighs.
Use the wrong triangles for the image of ears and hoove
Draw the final contour of the pig.
Draw details. Draw a curled tail. Draw the eyes between the contours of the snout and body, as well as details of the snout, mouth and feet.
Remove all unnecessary lines.
And finally, Paint or color in the pig.
- While drawing look at the picture of the pig, it may help.
- Trace a pencil line that you want to leave, felt-tip pen, and erase the extra lines.
- Do not leave any lines!
- If you want to make the picture more realistic, or add decorations or context, add some shadows
There are some things people assume about pigs that aren't actually true. We have put together some pictures and listed the facts on the pictures. These are easy to understand if you are trying to teach children about pigs. You can also check out our pig fact page for additional information and pictures. Click here to see that page.
