Start with the oval in the top half of the page. Below this oval, draw a shape that resembles a large drop of water. These will be the basic shapes for Snoopy’s head and body.
Next, draw two lines that intersect through the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. Draw the horizontal line so that it is slightly curved and touches the upper part of the body shape. These will be the building lines that will help you place Snoopy’s features later on.
Now draw Snoopy’s ear on the left side of his head below the horizontal construction line. Draw it so it looks like a U.
Draw Snoopy’s arm so that it looks like a U shape but a bit longer and inside the left side of the body shape.
Draw a long, flattened oval below Snoopy’s body and attach it to his body using two vertical lines. Draw a similar oval hidden behind the first one on the right side. Attach this oval to the body by drawing one more vertical line. These will be Snoopy’s legs and feet.
Well, you now have a basic Snoopy shape, so it’s time to tighten up your drawing. From this point, press harder with your pencil to get bolder lines and a clearer sketch.
Determine the shape of Snoopy’s head by following the basic instructions for his head, but dip the top right part towards the center. Shade in his ear, making sure not to draw his head over his ear.
Draw an oval on the left side of the vertical build line just below the horizontal build line. Shade it in except for a small oval at the top to indicate luminance. This will be Snoopy’s nose. Draw a wide, U-shaped curve near the bottom of Snoopy’s head, stroking the edge of his head for his mouth.
To the left of the vertical construction line and above the horizontal construction line, draw two circles with curved lines above them that look like the number 6 and shade them inward. These are Snoopy’s eyes. On each eye on the top of his head, draw a thick, curved line to show his eyebrows. Draw the right eyebrow on the outside of his head.
Draw a thick line just below Snoopy’s neck to represent his collar. Darken according to the shape of his body except for the bottom of his legs.
Squeeze the shape of Snoopy’s arm and draw two small lines inside to represent his fingers. On the right side of the body, draw a leaf-like shape using a few curved lines to make Snoopy’s tail.
Darken Snoopy’s feet and draw a few vertical lines to the right to represent his toes.
Draw an oval-like shape inside Snoopy’s ear to indicate where he is, and shade it in. Make it a rough spot – don’t draw it too perfectly. Draw another point as a semicircle on the back on the left side of the body and shade in. Draw in another shape where Snoopy’s head meets his neck on the right side to represent his other ear.
That’s it! You now have a nice sketch of Snoopy, Charlie Brown’s pet dog from Charles M. Shultz’s Peanuts comic strip. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, rough look or for a more finished look by continuing to the step below.
For a complete, ink-filled look, carefully review the final outlines with a pen or marker. Wait for the ink to dry, then erase each pencil mark with an eraser. You now have a complete ink drawing of Snoopy! No need to color Snoopy because he is a black and white cartoon character. Oh that’s it! You now have the complete drawing of Snoopy, Charlie Brown’s pet dog from Charles M. Shultz’s Peanuts comic.
