How to Draw Pluto the Dog
Hello once again an welcome to DragoArt.com. This second tutorial for the day is going to be on another cartoon character that I'm sure you all are familiar with. He is Mickey Mouses best friend and he is as funny as a dog. Today I will show you "how to draw Pluto", step by step. This animated pup has a mind of his own and unlike most Disney characters he stays walking on all fours. Pluto is often seen as Mickey's pet hound dog and he made his first début back in the early thirties, 1930 to be exact. Do you know the name of the first cartoon that Pluto started in? Well if you guessed "The Chain Gang" you are right. Soon after he made his debut, he was known as œPluto the Pup and made his way to star in more fun Disney animated cartoons with his pal and owner Mickey. After kids and adults fell in love with this pup, Pluto soon began his own career staring in his very own animated shorts from 1940-1950. Did you know that Pluto and Goofy are the same breed of dog, the only difference is Goofy walks on two legs and he talks. This was a fun tutorial and my main goal was to make Pluto look as authentic as possible. I wanted him to resemble the way he looked back in the day. In this tutorial I will show you how to draw Pluto the dog step by step. The detailed steps and easy to read instructions will help you draw this pup with ease. I will be back in a few with more tutorials on some great characters.....
Do you remember how I start all my first steps? If you said "with guidelines and shapes" I know you pay attention and you are absolutely right. You will start this step by drawing the circle shape of Pluto's head and then draw the squared shape for his muzzle. You will then draw another circle shape for his chest and then a small behind circle. What comes next? That's right, the guidelines for his legs and back. You will now move to the next step.
How do you think you will start this next step? Exactly, you will start drawing in the eyes and brows and then start drawing out the lining for Pluto's muzzle and jaw. You will then start making the shaping lines for his neck and legs front and back. What did I forget to mention in this step? Right again, you will also need to draw in the olive shape of his nose before you leave this step.
Well you are already on step three, guess what that means? You are only three more steps away from completing this tutorial. Now as you may know, you will tackle this tutorial by shaping and detailing Pluto's muzzle and bottom lip. Make sure you make his mouth look like he has loose skin on the top of his nose and give him a few whiskers on his chin. You will now draw out the shape of his..what? Yes ear and collar. Finish this step by drawing out the rest of the shapes of his legs and put toes on his front paw.
Finally you have made it to step four. Did you know that when you start erasing the guidelines you no longer need your drawing starts to look a hole lot better? First you will take your drawing tool and sketch out the shape on the top of his head and don't forget his signature hump. Detail his collar and then draw more toe lines on his paws. You will then start drawing out the lining for his inner hind leg and then his tail.
this is your last drawing step and what you will do is finish his ear, foot, toes and tail. Is there anything else you are forgetting to do in this step before you move onto the last step? Yes, erase the guidelines you drew in step one. After you have cleaned up your drawing you are done with this step.
When you are done this is what your Disney pup should come out looking like. All you have ot do now is color him in and that is it. I hope you liked this tutorial on how to draw Pluto the dog step by step. Did you have a rocking time or what? Yeah, me too. I will be back in a bit with more drawing fun so stick around kiddies.
