  • Piggy bank savings tracker – You can draw a pig in a piggy bank style, to create a money spread in your bullet journal for tracking expenses and savings. 
  • A monthly mood tracker with pig doodles – leave a space for each day of the month to draw a pig with different expressions to represent different moods, e.g a happy pig if it was a good day, a crying pig if you felt sad, etc. 
  • Spring bingo sheet – create a page of all different things you’d like to see during Spring (such as flowers, clouds, ducklings, pigs, etc) and tick them off as you go along. You could even draw them as a line drawing, then add colour to them once you’ve seen them!

How to Draw a Pig – Step by Step

[H2] How to Draw a Pig – Step by Step

Follow the step by step tutorial on how to draw a pig below:

Step 1: Using a pencil, draw an oval shape for the head. Make the oval wider than it is tall.

Underneath this oval, draw a squarish circle in pencil to outline the body. Make it so the second circle overlaps slightly with the first oval.

Step 2: Again using a pencil, draw two shapes to outline the ears at either side of the head oval. Then draw two leg shapes in pencil into the lower part of the circle that is the body.

Step 3: Now using a fineliner pen, go over the outline for the head, but leave space between the lines for the ears.

Step 4: Define the ears using the fineliner. Make them slightly pointed at the top.

Step 5: Draw around the body outline in fineliner, leaving space at the bottom of the circle to draw the legs in.

Step 6: Go over the lines in the body that represent the front legs in fineliner. Make the bottom of the legs have two small points each for trotters.

Step 7: Inside the oval that is the head, draw a snout shape in fineliner.

Step 8: Add two small oval shapes inside the snout for nostrils.

Step 9: Just above the snout, draw two ovals for eyes.

Step 10: At the bottom of the circle body and legs, add in small fineliner lines to add trotters in.

Step 11: Draw in a curly tail on one side of the body in fineliner.

Step 12: Add some colour to your pig, and you’re done!
