How to Draw the Bulldog Mascot

The bulldog is a mascot at a number of American universities and it is an animal that is synonymous with courage and determination. When the British endured the German Blitz in World War II, their courage was referred to as "the bulldog spirit." Bulldogs have a very expressive face, which makes them one of the most interesting of animals to draw. A bulldog drawing will require a lot of the detail, from the facial expression to the folds of the skin. The following describes how to draw a full-face bulldog portrait.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

PencilPaperBulldog image

Instructions

1 Draw a freehand circle. Next, draw a cross from the centre of the circle, placing all the ends of the cross on the inner edges of the circle. The circle and the cross will act as a placement guide for the head of the bulldog mascot.

2 Sketch the face of the bulldog, starting from the centre of the circle, beginning with the eyes. Don't try to force the chin, for instance, into the circle when, proportionately, it should be underneath. The circle is there to assist the drawing, but it is not a rigid guide.

3 Begin your drawing by tracing over your initial sketch, but making it more detailed. Draw the main features of the bulldog's face and work around them with light and shade. Capture the folds and creases of the skin as well as the main features of the face.

4 Place a vertical line under the circle, connecting from the vertical line inside the circle. This will be a guide for drawing the body of the bulldog. Draw the sides of the bulldog around the line. Refer to this line to see if the body is in proportion. The sides should be equidistant from the line.

5 Centralise the body from the already drawn head. Use the nose and mouth as a central point and draw a thin line down from there. The power of the bulldog is well known, and any drawing needs to bring out the muscular qualities of the dog. Sketch the muscle and folds of the bulldog's body and then add a heavier touch where necessary.

Tips and warnings

A bulldog can be made to look more appealing by having a gentle expression on its face. A common artist's mistake is to try to make the dog look more fierce than it actually is.

Bulldogs, perhaps more than any dog, require attention to detail when being drawn. Because of this, you may need to draw the bulldog in sessions, which would be preferable to drawing the animal hurriedly.
