In people's minds, pigs are lazy and sleepy, with simple brains and clumsy limbs. In reality, wild boars are fierce and impatient. They dare to fight hunters to the death in order to defend their living space, and bravely fight tigers, leopards and other ferocious beasts!
Domestic pigs domesticated from wild boars look docile and honest, because they have been domesticated by humans for a long time and have lost their nature due to isolation from nature.
Pigs are the most clean-loving animals known to have been domesticated. Although it is impossible to get out of the pigsty, the pigs will also avoid the sleeping area when defecating.
Because they are particularly afraid of heat, but have no sweat glands, they can only dissipate heat by wetting their whole bodies, which mistakenly gives people a dirty impression.
How to Draw a Pig Head Step by Step
Step 1 Draw one ear of this pig
We all know that pigs have big ears which, like their noses, are one of their most distinctive head features.
Here we first draw the left ear of this piggy - it is big, and hangs down at the same time, covering the top of the head.
Start by drawing a curved line from left to right to get the top edge of this ear. Then draw the outline of this ear starting from its left end.
Step 2 Draw the pig's other ear
We have already drawn an ear, now let's draw the right ear of this piggy. It's positioned slightly lower than the one on the left.
You can see that the two ears are roughly symmetrical. So you shouldn't be confused about how to do it!
Also first draw a curve from left to right. Then draw the outline of this ear starting from its right end.
Step 3 Draw the top of the pig's head
Through the above two steps, we have obtained the two ears of this piglet, and it will be very simple to draw the top of its head!
Between the two ears, draw a curved line from left to right to form an arch and connect the two ears at the same time.
You'll need to pay attention to where the ends of this curve are, while it should pass through one end of the top edge of each ear.
Step 4 Draw the outline of the pig's head
In this step we will draw the outline of the pig's head. Its head is nearly square and very big.
Draw a wavy line down from the bottom of the left ear. Then draw a wavy line down from the bottom of the right ear as well. This doesn't need to be precise.
Then draw a curved line from left to right, connecting the bottom ends of those two wavy lines. This completes the outline of the pig's head.
Step 5 Draw one eye of this pig
Right below the ear on the left, we're going to draw one of the pig's eyes. It's huge, even nearly half the width of the face.
Start by drawing an upright oval, like an egg. Then draw a circle in the center of it.
Inside that circle, draw three circles of different sizes. This makes this eye look like it's sparkling, so pretty!
Step 6 Draw another eye of this pig
Also, below the ear on the right, we're going to draw another big eye for this little pig.
You'll notice that, like the piggy's ears, the eye on the right is set slightly lower.
Start by drawing a big oval and inside it draw a circle. Then add three circles of different sizes inside that circle.
Step 7 Draw the nose and mouth of this pig
Right below those two eyes, we're going to draw a big nose. Then come to finish its mouth.
Draw a big oval for the piggy's nose. Then inside this oval, add two smaller symmetrical ovals.
Draw a short, curved line on the lower right side of this nose for the piggy's smile.
Step 8 Draw the front legs of this pig
We've already drawn the pig's head. You can just stop there and start coloring it. Of course, you can also add a leg on either side of the head as we are going to do.
On the left side of the face, draw a "U" shape rotated 90 degrees clockwise for a front leg. Then add a curved line to this leg.
Similarly, draw another front leg on the right side of the face. Then draw a curved line on this leg as well.
Step 9 Color this cute pig head
So far, we have drawn a cute piggy head. Next, we can get out crayons or watercolor paints to color it in.
We will color this piggy pink with a light pink nose and dark pink nostrils and feet. Then color its eyes dark purple.
If you are not particularly satisfied with the colors we choose, you can decide what colors to choose by yourself.

Why are the piggy banks in the shape of pigs?
The history of the piggy bank can be traced back to 200 BC. Continuing into the Middle Ages, in order to make it easier for people to distinguish the piggy bank from other pottery pots in the kitchen, craftsmen began to use an orange clay called pygg. These clay pots are also called pygg pots.
With the evolution of English, pygg was gradually unified with piggy. So, when an order for a piggy pot came to an English pot maker in the 19th century, the first piggy bank was born. Later, because of the image of the piglet, it was warmly welcomed by kids and has been passed down to this day.
