Pigs were domesticated by humans long ago. Domestic pigs may be referred to as hogs or swine, and wild pigs as boars. A baby pig is called a piglet.
There are also many types of domestic pigs. The Hampshire has perhaps the most unique appearance. Its head, middle, and rear are black in color, while its shoulders and forelegs are white.
Young pigs have held starring roles in many stories and films. The children's story Charlotte's Web features a piglet named Wilbur. The hero of the live-action film Babe was a young pig who wanted to be a sheepdog. Disney's various adaptations of Winnie the Pooh feature Pooh's shy friend, Piglet.

2. Continue to sketch the head using curved lines. Beneath the circle, draw a "U" shaped line. This will form the pig's chin. Then, draw long, curved lines from each side of the circle and connect them to the chin. This outlines the cheeks or "jowls."

3. Draw the pig's ears. For each, extend two curved lines from the head, and allow them to meet in gentle points. The ears should be roughly triangular in shape. Then, draw a curved, "S" shaped line within each ear. From this line, extend several short, curved lines. This details the folds of the ear.

Notice that the lines curve inward on the lower leg, distinguishing the ankles from the knees. Draw a "U" shaped line to enclose the bottom of each leg. Then, enclose the hoof using a rounded "W" shaped line.

8. Draw the pig's eyes and nose. For the snout, begin with a large oval. Within it, draw two small circles to indicate the nostrils. Draw a curved line from the snout to the middle of the face, and band this portion of the snout with a curved line. For each eye, draw three successively smaller ovals, one within the next. Inside the smallest oval, draw a small circle. Shade between the two, indicating the pupil. Above each eye, enclose a curved shape to indicate the eyebrows. Draw a pair of spiraled, parallel lines that meet at a point to indicate the curly tail.
