    How to Draw a Rottweiler Dog

    A Rottweiler is a big, strong dog breed that makes for a good guard and an equally good pet---as long as the owner can handle 80 or more pounds of pure muscle. Rottweilers are most easily identified by their big, boxy heads. They also have broad shoulders that taper off into a smaller rump. They are black with lighter brown or tan markings. Keep all these traits in mind, and it's not difficult to draw a Rottweiler.

  • 1 / 5

    Start with his eyes. Draw two circles with a dot in each for eyeballs.

  • 2 / 5

    Make his nose and mouth. Draw a triangle shape a bit below his eyes. Draw two rounded lines coming down from his nose.

  • 3 / 5

    Finish his head. Draw an upside-down rounded triangle coming down from the rounded lines for his tongue. Make a line down the centre of his tongue. Draw a straight line directly above his eyes, finished off on each side with slightly pointed shapes for his ears. Draw the bottom of a box shape down from his ears to serve as his head.

  • 4 / 5

    Draw his body. Make a thick square shape in front, with two tabs coming off it, for his upper body. Draw a slanted line from the back of one of the tabs to create the smaller back body. Draw a rectangle coming down off the slanted line, a triangle for a tail and a straight line connected the tail to the head. Draw one more thin rectangle coming down from the slanted line for his second rear leg.

  • 5 / 5

    Colour him in. Use a brown crayon or colouring instrument to highlight his legs, chest and beneath his eyes. Shade the rest of him black.

    Tips and warnings

    These steps show a happy Rottweiler, but you can make him mean by making the tops of his eyeballs slanted downward towards his nose and adding some triangles as viscous teeth.
