How to draw Pluto the Pup

Every artist embarks on a journey, and today, we’re taking a delightful artistic trip to the charming world of Disney to learn how to draw the lovable canine, Pluto. Known for his endearing expressions and being Mickey’s loyal pet, Pluto has brought smiles to our faces for generations. Now, it’s time to bring him to life on your sketch pad!

Manifesting Pluto on Paper

Pluto’s distinct characteristics have made him a timeless Disney character. The medium-sized, yellow-orange colored dog with his distinguishing black ears captures hearts with his dynamic expressions. He’s an exciting character to draw due to his non-anthropomorphic design, unlike his Disney counterparts. So let’s highlight key features you need to consider when drawing Pluto:

  • Facial Expression: One of Pluto’s iconic traits is his expressive face. Focusing on his eyes, eyebrows, and mouth will be key to bringing Pluto’s personality to life.
  • Body Shape: Pluto’s body structure is that of a traditional dog, unlike Mickey or Goofy. The rounded body, thick neck, and short limbs all add to Pluto’s charm.
  • Color: Pluto’s classic yellow-orange color, contrasting black ears, and the white of his eyes give him his characteristic look.

Other characters that might add extra charm to your drawing include his loyal companions Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Minnie.
