Any fan of The Family Guy is well aware of Brian Griffin, the level headed dog that acts like a human. Brian the dog is arguably one of the show’s most notable characters. He is a budding writer but has never had a real job. Which I don’t think dogs are expected to have one.
Just like drawing anything else, we’re going to break it all down into easy to draw shapes.
So get that pencil ready and let’s draw Brian the dog from The Family Guy.
Begin your drawing by drawing two ovals. These ovals can be almost circles. There should be a little bit of space between the shapes. The oval on top will become the head of Brian, while the bottom shape will become the main part of the body.
Next, we’ll draw two circles which will become the eyes of Brian. Round off the top of the head just above the two circles. Draw two semi-curved lines coming from the first oval that you drew and connect it with the body shape. Also, draw a couple of shapes for the upper portions of the legs.
In this stage of the drawing, we’ll start to add some of the details that will make Brian the dog look like Brian the dog. Draw a couple of eyelids with a couple of simple lines. Add the pupils with a couple of simple dots. Draw a large circle right in the middle of the first shape that you drew for the nose. Add a couple of ears too. Round out the rear end and draw a tail. Add the bottom of the chin and a mouth just above a collar. Also draw the shape for the right arm and a shape for the upper portion of the left arm. Don’t forget the feet either.
Next, draw the lower portion of Brian’s arm along with the fingers. Draw the distinctive dog tag and add some toes.
Now all that’s left to do is go over your lines with ink. Let the ink dry and erase all of your pencil lines. Be sure to let some of the lines be thicker than others so that you have a variety of marks. That’s how easy it is to draw Brian the dog from The Family Guy.
