How to Draw a Pitbull Tribal Tattoo

Step 1.

Start off by drawing the broad brows for the Pitbull's eyes. They should be bold, thick and real defined.

Step 2.

Up next, draw out the eyes. Add shading around the eyes and make sure that the eyes end up looking very expressive.

Step 3.

Now on with the tribal work. Draw the nose shape, then make more lining down the face to form the jowls or lips of the pitbull. There should also be angled lining under the lips to make it pop out more.

Step 4.

Begin drawing the left side of the face which is also angled and defined. Take your time so the designing comes out looking like a chiseled pitbull face.

Step 5.

Here you will draw in the right side of the pitbull's face which will almost complete the face.

Step 6.

Draw in the bottom lip or chin like so, then proceed to step seven.

Step 7.

Almost done folks. Draw the very structured head shape like so. It looks almost like a rock. Draw the small pointed ears which have been clipped.

Step 8.

And finally, you will need to draw in all the detailing to the muzzle or bridge of the nose and between the eyes. Erase all your mistakes and you are done.

Step 9.

Here is the line art when you are done once you shade in all the areas. Now all you have to do is add some color if you want or take to your line art to tattoo artist.

Everyone loves Pitbulls so what I did was make a lesson on "how to draw a Pitbull tattoo", step by step. Now even though I don't own a Pitbull, I do love how this drawing came out. A long time ago when I just started Dragoart I made a tutorial on a pitbull and it stood in the top 50 for months and months. I know this lesson won't go to the Top 50, but I think a lot of folks will love drawing a pitbull tattoo. Thanks everyone and enjoy.
