But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or color pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.

How to draw a kawaii corgi face – Step by step for beginners

I always start with very easy shapes so that anybody of any age can draw this.

So, let’s start by drawing a rough sketch first of a simple oval shape first.

If you are doing this traditionally, please draw it very lightly with a pencil so that you can erase it later.

Next, we will start by drawing a simple curve like this:

Next, we’ll draw the 2 ears of the corgi – just draw 2 triangles like this:

Next, we will draw the sides of the face – so while drawing the sides, just add some zig-zags to indicate the corgi’s fur on the side of its face.

Next, we will draw the underneath of its face – just follow along the oval.

Next, draw 2 round eyes like this:

Easy, isn’t it?

Then draw a nose and a small w shape underneath the nose – this is going to be the corgi’s muzzle/snout.

And then, we’ll draw 2 triangles inside the ears – it will be the ear’s insides.

And we’re done drawing a cute corgi face!

Let’s color him now.

Corgi has a specific color pattern, so using camel brown, I’m going to color the sides of its head.

Next, color the insides of the ears and add 2 blush spots to complete the corgi’s face.
