How To Draw A Hot Dog
Sure, you may think that drawing a hot dog is pret-ty simple. Well, think again! Drawing a hot dog isn’t as easy as it looks, and if you don’t know what you’re doing you’ll end up with something more resembling a pancake — or worse, a pair of socks! Don’t let those mis-haps stop you though: follow the tips in this article and you’ll be the Picasso of hot dogs in no time.
Step One: Get Some Hot Dog Supplies
Before you can make art, you have to have all of the tasty supplies! Make sure that you have some paper, pencils, an eraser and some color markers or paint. Now you’re ready to start getting creative.
Step Two: Sketch Out the Basic Shape
Now it’s time to start drawing. Get your pencil ready and draw a sausage-like shape with one end tapered, like a hot dog would be. The other end should be bulging and rounded. This is the basic shape you’ll be working with, so take your time and make sure you get it right.
Step Three: Add Some Details
Now you can take it to the next level. Sketch out the kinks and bends that make hot dogs unique. Add some grooves and texture to give your hot dog a realistic look. Don’t be afraid to add as much detail as you can — the more the better!
Step Four: Outline and Color
Now you can take your hot dog to the next level by outlining it with a black marker and filling it in with color. Choose the color that best matches the type of hot dog you’re drawing — a classic yellow for a standard hot dog or a deep red for a chili dog. Don’t forget to add detailing with different colored pencils for a truly realistic look.
Make It Into a New Creation
When you’ve got the finished hot dog, you can take it further by adding extra elements to make it into a completely new creation. For example, you can draw a bun around your hot dog and top it with lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. Or you can draw a plate around it and add a side of French fries. Get creative and see what you can make!
Make It 3D
Now that you’ve finished your hot dog, why not make it 3D? Take some cardstock, cut out your hot dog shape, and glue it onto a piece of foam board. Add some dimension and texture to your hot dog shape so that it looks even more realistic. Now you’ve got a 3D hot dog!
Add Some Finishing Touches
Now that you’ve made your hot dog, it’s time to put the finishing touches on it. If you’re feeling creative, add some condiments like ketchup and mustard. If you want to make it even more special, draw a hot dog stand and some people around it chowing down on your masterpiece. No matter what you do, your hot dog will be a work of art!
