Learn how to draw a French Bulldog with a step by step tutorial. Drawing that cute face and body just might be easier than you think.
The French Bulldog is the result of a cross between Toy Bulldogs from England, and terriers from Paris, France. The cross breeding began in the mid 1800s is order to make the Bulldog more of a companion than a sporting dog.
French Bulldogs were highly fashionable and sought after by society ladies in the late 1800s, as well as with creatives such as artists, writers, and fashion designers. There is even a record of Edgar Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec including them in their paintings.
Today the French Bulldog is among the most popular dog breeds because they are low energy and adaptable to any home, even a small apartment. They are also comfortable living with individuals or families. Their chubby bodies and adorable faces make them extra fun to draw.
