We all know that pugs are cute, and it is hard to imagine anything that could make them more adorable; apart from maybe putting them in a Santa hat! Want to see for yourself? Then let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black fineliner, and draw two wavy shapes, almost like the outline of feet, in the center of your page.
Connect these two shapes with a curved shape across the top.
Now, add a single curved line to connect these at the bottom.
Add another curved shape just above this, so that you have an oval at the bottom of the overall shape – this is the nose of your pug.
Add a curved line to the top, and take this to the right, before adding a “bump” and taking this to the right and curving down.
Add three curved “forks” inside this, just above the right wavy shape – these are the ears below the bottom of the Santa hat.
Now, add a shape with three bumps to the right of this.
Add two “horseshoe” shapes to the top of the nose for the outline of the eyes…
And then add a small circle inside each of these, with a smaller dot in the top right above this.
Next, add two curved lines, like a “7” and a backward “7”, in between the eyes for those distinctive pug wrinkles.
Add slightly thicker lines to the tops of each eye…
And then add a small triangle to the top of the nose section, with a short vertical line below this.
Bring curved lines out at the bottom of the vertical line for a huge smile, and then add a “u” shaped tongue below this.
Add a series of dots all around the nose and mouth…
And then add two shapes, one short and one long, below the face.
Draw two small circles in the gap below these two shapes…
And then add three rectangle shapes with curved corners – two should be straight, and the other angled at around 45 degrees.
Connect this angled shape to a curved line heading across and up, and then add a looping double horseshoe-shape for the tail. Connect this to the collar beneath the face with another curved line.
Bring a curved line up from the other end of the angled shape for a back leg…
And then connect these small shapes together at the bottom, and then to the bottom of the face with a curved line.
Add another small rectangle shape to the bottom left of your pug.
Now, add small half-circle shapes to the bottom of each of these for the paws.
Add a line across each paw…
And then add a small pentagon to the left of your pug.
Divide this into sections with vertical lines…
And add a bow to the top, creating a gift.
Add another layer around each section of the bow…
And then add a star to the space in the top left above your pug.
From here, bring down a diagonal line, and then take this in. Repeat this below to reach the top of the present and create the side of a Christmas tree.
Bring the bottom of the tree across to meet the side of the pug, and then bring a line down from the right of the star.
Now, add a small oval shape just below the stat, and a “ring” below this.
Use the black pen to add a series of small marks around the bottom of this ring…
And then repeat this over the remainder of the tree to add cute decorations.
Add a series of small marks all around the edge of the star…
And then use the pen to write “MERRY CHRISTMAS” in large letters below.
Use a red pen to shade these letters, and add the same color to the stripes of the present, the bow, and the coat and hat of the dog.
Use a black pen to add color to the rings around the eyes and the line above the eyes.
Now, use a brown pen for the face, the space around the eyes, the paws, ears, and tail.
Grab a pink pen for the inside of the mouth and some of the baubles on the tree…
And then use a brown pencil for the tail and the top of the face.
Use a yellow pen for the star on the tree and a couple more baubles on the tree.
Add color to a few more with the blue pen…
And then use a purple pen for the remaining bauble.
Grab a green pen and use this to shade the tree…
And then use a dark green pen for the rest of the present.
And there we have it – a gorgeous pug enjoying a wonderful Christmas – anyone for mulled wine?
