Today it is difficult to imagine the Walt Disney universe without Pluto, the loyal pet of Mickey Mouse and the favorite of the audience. There is no person who does not remember this funny puppy from childhood. Although this character originally appeared as a minor and only made a cameo appearance, after the first solo series Playful Pluto in 1934, the studio saw the real potential of this character.
After that, Pluto became a favorite of the audience and consolidated his position in the Mickey Mouse universe, becoming a full member of the team. From 1930 to 1950, Pluto starred in nearly 50 short cartoons and was even named the first of the 100 Greatest Animated Pets of All Time, as well as being the 5th of the Most popular Disney characters.
To prove that drawing a dog can be simple and fun at the same time, we suggest you try your hand at drawing Pluto the dog!
How to Draw Pluto Step by Step
Step 1. Thus, we start a dog sketch: a simple oval, which we divide into 2 parts, these will be the future eyes of our cheerful Pluto.
Step 2. Then draw a second oval, this will be the upper jaw of the dog.
Step 3. Next, draw the eyes and upper eyelids on Pluto's face.
Step 4. The next step is to connect both ovals into one.
Step 5. Now let's draw in more detail the upper jaw of Pluto, draw his nose and folds above it.
Step 6. Next, we draw his open lower jaw.
Step 8. Now draw Pluto's ears.
Step 9. Next, draw his body: sketch out the outlines of the body in the form of an inverted pear.
Step 10. Add the front dog paws.
Step 11. Next, in the background, draw 2 large elongated ovals and 2 smaller ones (these will be the hind paws).
Step 12. We divide the large ovals in half, without finishing, - this is how we get Pluto's paws bent.
Step 13. Now draw the fingers, and draw the contours of Pluto's body in more detail.
Step 14. All that remains is to erase the extra lines, and our sketch with Pluto is ready!
Step 15. Now let's start painting our sketch. Use watercolor for a one-color fill, and then outline the contours of the drawing with a black marker step by step. А dog is recognized by its tail, so at the final stage, do not forget to draw Pluto's tail. Done!
