How to Draw Piglet – Let’s Get Started!
We will be starting with Piglet’s head and ears in this first step of our guide on how to draw Piglet. His head will be drawn as a rounded shape that has two sections to it.
Try your best to replicate the shape of his head as we show it in our reference picture!
Then, we will be adding his ears onto his head. Each ear will have a rounded base, and then will end in a sharper tip.
Before you move on to the second step of the guide, you can also add two curved lines near the top of his face, and these will be his eyebrows. Once all of these aspects are drawn, we shall then move on to the next part!
Step 2 – Now, draw his body and arms
In this second step of your Piglet drawing, we will be adding a body and a pair of arms to the little guy.
Piglet is often shown looking a bit bashful, and we will be reflecting this in the pose that we will be drawing him in.
His body will be drawn with a curved line to show it extending backward. The reference image will show you how you can angle his head in relation to his body to create this bashful pose.
Then, you can finish off this step by drawing his rounded arms going behind his back.
Step 3 – Next, draw his two legs
Continuing on with this guide on how to draw Piglet, we shall be adding his legs in this part.
We mentioned in the previous part that he is posed to look a bit bashful, and this will be reflected in the way that we position his legs.
His legs will be drawn as thin shapes with rounded ends, and they will be angled so that his knees are inverted towards each other.
That’s all there is to it, so when you’re ready we can then move on to the next part!
Step 4 – Now, draw his facial features
It wouldn’t be a complete Piglet drawing without his adorable face, so we shall add it in this step.
You can start by drawing two small, black dots for his eyes, and they will be quite close together. Then, add a curved line between them and draw his rounded nose attached to that line.
Next, extend some more curved lines out from the base of his nose to draw his smiling mouth.
Before you move on to the final details in the next part, you can also add some slightly curved horizontal lines underneath his eyes to further create his facial expression.
Then you will be ready to move on to those final details that we mentioned earlier!
Step 5 – Add the final details to your Piglet drawing
This fifth step of our guide on how to draw Piglet will see you adding the final touches before you move on to the final step of the guide.
These should be pretty easy to add, as all you need to do is draw some curved horizontal lines across his body. Once you have drawn these, you are ready to color him in for the next step!
Before you move to that final part, you should also feel free to add any details of your own. Perhaps you could add a nice background or draw some more Winnie The Pooh characters to go with Piglet.
What extra details can you think of to add to this adorable drawing of yours?
Step 6 – Finish off your Piglet drawing with some color
For the final step of your Piglet drawing, we shall be finishing him off with some lovely colors.
Piglet isn’t known for having lots of colors for his design, but his color scheme is still rather specific regardless! He is colored in various shades of pink, and that is what we went for in this guide.
You can refer to our example image if you would like him to look accurate to how he looks in the films, or you could use some colors of your own for a unique Piglet variation.
Once you know which colors you would like to use, you can also have some fun choosing the art mediums.
Watercolor paints would be great to recreate the look of the movies, but you could also use some bright mediums like acrylics and colored markers if you prefer.
