How To Draw Snoopy – Peanuts – MHTD Badge

Learn How to Draw Snoopy Quickly & Easily!

This cute guy will look great on any wall; at the same time, it’s one of the easiest tutorials on our website. Ok, let’s see what we’ll need to do to create this lively puppy. First of all, sue light strokes to make a huge circle that will be the foundation of the character (00 min 10 sec). If it’s a bit hard to do, try “handling” the circle in two approaches.

This is just the beginning of our how to draw Snoopy manual. The next step would be to draw another circle – much smaller – inside the 1st one. It actually doesn’t have to be a round-shaped thing – more of a simple guideline for the future (00 min 38 sec). Then, create a straight line that goes from the top down to the bottom.

Snoopy’s head is easy – just use regular pen strokes on the original huge guiding circle (00 min 47 sec).  If you follow the video, you’ll separate the face from the hair and keep all the proportions right. The key to learning how to draw Snoopy (or any other character, for that matter) is to keep the balance and the position of the various elements.

The eyes are super-small and add extra cuteness (01 min 36 sec). Position them right in the middle of the second guiding circle’s top and pretty close to each other. The trick with the nose is to place it a bit lower than the center of the tiny circle (02 min 05 sec). The mouth is just one curvy line (02 min 16 sec). See how easy that was?

Now go over the drawing and erase the guides. We decided to keep the character in our how to draw Snoopy tutorial in black-and-white, so, you’ll only need a black pencil to color the hair, the eyes, and the nose. Obviously, you can go with whatever color combinations you like.

Before you learn how to draw Snoopy, did you know?

Snoopy is Charlie Brown’s pet Beagle in the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz. Snoopy leads a life full of fantasy where he often imagines himself doing all sorts of different things. It was in 1950 when Snoopy made a debut in his comic strip and the original plan was to name him “Sniffy” until the author learned that there was already a “Sniffy” being used in another comic.

That’s when the name was changed to Snoopy. Now go ahead and learn how to draw Snoopy for yourself by following the simple steps in this video. As you can already see, there’s nothing to it. And don’t be disappointed if you fail with the first couple of drafts – that’s totally normal!

Some Things To Keep In Mind…

These tutorials are only here to guide you. Your drawing does not need to look "identical" to mine.

Start with rough but light pencil strokes that you can work into the shapes you want.

Once you have your rough drawing completed, go over it in a darker stroke for your final drawing.

Add shading and/or color to complete if desired.

Using this technique you will be able to draw anything after some practice... even without following step-by-step tutorials.
