Who here loves the big red dog that airs on PBS Kids? I know you’re probably already familiar with this character. I mean if you think about it, who isn't? I am going to show you all how to draw Clifford the Big Red dog step by step. Clifford has been making kids laugh, learn and get excited about learning new things and valuable lessons. Clifford is a red colored dog that was adopted by a little girl named Emily Elizabeth Howard which made him feel pretty good when she chose him as her pet. Clifford was originally the runt of the puppy litter but that didn’t stop Emily from choosing the one pup that was being ignored because of his size. Now, because he is so big, he has his own dog house in the backyard of his owner’s home. Not only does Clifford love Emily Elizabeth, he also has three very good friends that he plays with and adores. First you have T-Bone who is a bulldog with a lot of spunk. Then there is his female k-9 friend Cleo who is a poodle and often prissy at times. Clifford also has a three legged friend that visits them often named K.C. and this pooch was fought over in one of the episodes that aired on PBS which I happened to watch with my baby sister. Clifford was first created as a character for a children’s book series that was published back in 1963 written by a gentleman named Norman Bridwell. Nowadays, the Clifford book series is published by Scholastic Books which is the same company that publishes the Goosebumps series. Anyways, this lesson will show you how to draw Clifford the Big Red Dog step by step. I hope you have fun with this tutorial, I shall return with more so stay tuned gang!

Add two scribbles like lines for his eyebrows and then a few hair line pieces. Draw out his collar and tag, the rest of his front leg, and then the thickness of his tail. Erase all the guidelines and shapes and then move to the finished drawing step.
