I love drawing cute chibi animals.
These types of drawings are super cute to add to any notebook or planner and they also make great drawing projects for kids.
And I’ve been obsessed with drawing kawaii animals lately.
I’ve already done a tutorial on drawing a corgi face here. So, check it out if you haven’t already.
In this post, I’m going to show you how to draw a kawaii corgi step by step so that by the end of the tutorial, you’ll get something like this:
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 – 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 – this will make it super easy to draw the corgi.
If you’re drawing this traditionally – make sure the rough sketch is with pencil and is done very lightly so you can erase it later!
I’m going to start by drawing a rough sketch of the head first. I’m going to use simple shapes like an oval for the head and triangles for the corgi’s ears.
Next, we are going to draw the neck of the corgi. I’m going to draw quick scruffy lines to make it look like the corgi is nice and fluffy.
Next, we’ll draw the front 2 legs of the corgi – just draw 2 sausage shapes below the neck like this.
Next, we will draw a small curve at the back and continue the curve in the front – this is going to be the behind and the back leg of the corgi – it’s okay if it’s messy. We will correct it when drawing the final corgi.
Let’s start with the actual drawing now. I’m going to lighten the sketch layer and start drawing the corgi.
We will start with a simple curve and the 2 triangles for ears:
Next, we are going to draw the sides of the corgi’s face and add some lines to make him look furry and fluffy.
Easy, isn’t it?
Next, draw 2 eyes and a nose on the corgi like this:
And then we’ll draw the muzzle of the corgi by drawing a cute “w” shape and 2 more triangles inside the ears.
Next, we’ll draw the neck and make sure it’s very fluffy.
Now, draw the two front legs – when drawing the toes, just make sure you draw a little squiggly line to indicate the paws. Don’t forget to draw the big curve between its legs.
Lastly, draw the behind and the back leg like so:
Let’s color the corgi now.
Add brown patches like this on the corgi’s body. The pattern usually remains the same for all corgis.
Now, color the feet white.
Next, I’ll add 2 blush spots on the corgi’s feet to make it look cute and color the inner ears pink.
You’ve learned how to draw a cute corgi from scratch!
You can go ahead and add this drawing to your planner or notebook to make it come to life!
