Max Drawing from The Grinch

Max is the dog and companion of the Grinch, and has long been admired for his efforts shown in “The Grinch” movie. His task was to pull a very heavy sleigh up a hill, and he seemed to give it his all, that’s for sure.

This tutorial shows how to draw Max with an antler tied to his head. It was his master’s idea for making him look like one of Santa’s reindeer. It’s a fun detail to add, and tells the story of who he is to anyone familiar with the movie.

Max’s body is simple and symmetrical, and the face has some very easy cartoon-like eyes. Now students that draw the Grinch will be able to add his little dog by his side too!

Materials for a Max from the Grinch drawing

Note: This post contains affiliate links.

  • Drawing Paper. Don’t substitute it with copy paper or construction paper. The surface will get fuzzy, erasing might cause holes, and the colors will generally not look as bright. *affiliate link
  • Stabilo Markers. The large pack provides lots of fun color choices, several shades of each color, including a few choices for skin. The tips are perfect for coloring, and there’s even a promise that they will work after being uncapped for 8 weeks! *affiliate link
  • Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase. *affiliate link
  • Black Sharpie Marker. Great for making a crisp outline to your drawing. Use them when you want your outline show up, but not be so heavy that it detracts from other things. *affiliate link
