While pigs have four toes on their feet, they only walk on the two middle toes. As omnivores, pigs in the wild eat both plants and animals. Because of their excellent sense of smell, pigs are used in European countries to “sniff-out” truffles; mushrooms of great popularity.
Domestic pigs can weigh as little as 110 pounds to as much as 770 pounds. Pigs are very smart and can be trained to perform many tasks and tricks. Pigs, especially in the wild, can be dangerous and have attacked people and caused injuries.
Erase your cross guideline. Draw a curly tail for your pig. Draw the slits of the snout and arcs under the eyes. Draw the detail of the feet with a line.
Draw the outline for the pig’s thighs. Draw these using square-like shapes, wider at the top and narrower at the bottom. Note that the hind thigh is the biggest of the four.
The images above represents how your finished drawing is going to look and the steps involved.
Draw the details. Draw the tail with a loop. Draw the eyes between the outline of the snout and body. Draw the snout’s details and the mouth. Draw the details of the feet.
OPTIONAL: Crayons, markers, or colored pencils (if you want to color it in)
Draw the snout and the mouth. Use your guidelines to align them. To detail the legs, draw a line to separate the paws from the legs.
Step 7: Draw another front leg right in front of the first front leg. Then add another hind leg. Don’t forget to draw the curly tail on the rump.
Step 6: Continue the belly line backtoward the rump. Add the hind leg. The top line is on a diagonal toward the hoof on the bottom. It should be the same size as the front leg. Continue the back leg back up to the rump line.
Step 2: Add a curved line to the top snout line to complete the head.
Draw another curved line where the snout is to complete the snout. Then add two ovals, and color them in with black. These are the nostrils.

Looking at photos is good when drawing anything, so that will help too! Trace the pencil lines you want to keep with a felt-tip pen, and erase any extra lines to make it look better.
