The wild boar is an animal species that gets mixed reviews on the type of species it is. Some people think that they are just as the same as farm pigs, but that is the farthest thing from the truth. Unlike the pink or white colored pigs we are familiar with, boars are animals that do not originally come from North America. Instead they are native to Europe and they where brought over by the Spaniard back in the 1500s sometime. Over the years, the wild boar became a pig that was hunted for sport because they lived in high wooded or forest like areas. Now because they grow to become very large, they are considered to be a prized kill. Boars can weigh up to three hundred pounds, and grow to be five feet in length. Unlike pigs, both males and females have tusks, with the males having longer ones. Boars also have thick hides and rough black fur that is also very coarse. One thing that these animals do the same as farm pigs is roll around in mud baths. They do this because they do not have sweat glands. To cool themselves down they will roll in cool watery mud that quenches their bodies ten fold. Contrary to what people believe pigs to be, they are also very fast and excellent swimmers. Female boar will give birth to one litter per year with litter sizes ranging between five and fourteen babies. They eat grass, nuts, roots, fruits, mushrooms, bugs, and whatever else they can get their noses in. This will definitely be a simple lesson to follow because drawing a boar is not that hard. They are relatively solid animals which means they have little folds, creases or wrinkles. I hope you enjoy this tutorial, I will be back with some more drawing fun soon.
