Well hello again DragoArt members and visitors. I have a special treat for all you dog lovers out there. This tutorial for the day is going to be on a pet that millions of people own. Today I will be showing you "how to draw a Chihuahua". These small bundles of joy (and sometimes terror) have become more and more popular with pop culture even though it happens to be an animal. They first started gaining their popularity when Taco Bell decided to use them as their advertising mascot. Over time the “Yo quiero Taco Bell” pup just seemed to grow on people, and I’m not just talking about with children and females either, men are known to own a Chihuahua or two as well. Now the Chihuahua is a small breed of dog that has sort of an apple shaped head, a stubby snout, big bold eyes, and large erect ears that are actually part of their distinctive trademark. If you think the description of his head and face sound weird wait till I tell you on how their body is shaped. For starters they have a stout body which happens to be loner than its tail, and the tail is a skinny pointed shaped piece of cartilage that curls back and sometimes the tip of the tail stays erect. The breed can be found with either short hair or long hair at which point they look similar to a Pomeranian. As you may know the Chihuahua is definitely classified as a pampered pet and because of this they are not recommended for children. Chihuahuas are known to have a “fresh” personality and because of that they are a very snappish and protective which means that this breed should not be trusted around kids and other people they do not know. To me they are ankle bitters because they can only rip at someone’s ankle or foot if they were to attack while standing. Even though these dogs only weight about two to six pounds and are only six to nine inches tall, they can certainly become a nuisance if they are not your pet. There is a new movie coming out by Disney that stars these small dogs called “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” due to be released October 3rd. This tutorial will show you how to draw a Chihuahua step by step. The instructions will help you draw this dog with ease and when you are done you can color him/her the way you want. I will be back with more drawing fun in a bit so stick around.
