Wanna learn how to draw Snoopy in 15 simple steps? Just follow below step-by-step instruction. Enjoy drawing!
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical line and one horizontal. Draw the horizontal line so it curves slightly and meets the top of the body shape. These will be construction lines that will help you place Snoopy’s features later on.
Step 5: Draw a long, flat oval below Snoopy’s body and attach it to his body with two vertical lines. Draw a similar oval that hides behind the first on the right side. Attach this oval to the body by drawing one more vertical line. These will be Snoopy’s legs and feet.
Step 7: Define Snoopy’s head shape by following the basic guide for his head, but dip the top right side in toward the center. Darken in his ear, making sure not to draw the part of his head that overlaps his ear.
Step 8: Draw an oval on the left side of the vertical construction line right below the horizontal construction line. Shade it in except for a small oval on the top to represent glare. This will be Snoopy’s nose. Draw a wide U-shaped curve near the bottom of Snoopy’s head that grazes the edge of his head for his mouth.
Step 9: To the left of the vertical construction line and above the horizontal construction line, draw two circles with curves on top of them that look like the number 6 and shade them in. These are Snoopy’s eyes. Above each eye on top of his head, draw a thick curve to represent his eyebrows. Draw the right eyebrow outside of his head.
Step 11: Tighten the shape of Snoopy’s arm and draw two small lines within in it to represent his fingers. On the right side of his body, draw a leaflike shape using a couple of curved lines to make Snoopy’s tail.
Step 13: Draw an oval-like shape inside Snoopy’s ear to indicate the spot he has there and shade it in. Make it a rough spot – don’t draw it too perfectly. Draw in another spot in the form of a semicircle in on his back on the left side of his body and shade it in. Draw in another shape where Snoopy’s head meets his neck on the right side to indicate his other ear.
Step 14: That’s it! You now have a nice sketch of Snoopy, Charlie Brown’s pet dog from Charles M. Shultz’s comic strip Peanuts. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, sketchy look or go for a more finished look by continuing to the step below.
Step 15: For a finished, inked look, carefully go over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker. Wait for the ink to dry, and then get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser. You now have a finished inked drawing of Snoopy! There is no need to color Snoopy because he’s a black and white cartoon character. So that’s it! You now have a completed drawing of Snoopy, Charlie Brown’s pet dog from Charles M. Shultz’s comic strip Peanuts.

The Silver Snoopy award is a special honor awarded to NASA employees and contractors for outstanding achievements related to human flight safety or mission success. The award certificate states that it is “In Appreciation” “For professionalism, dedication and outstanding support that greatly enhanced space flight safety and mission success.” The award depicts Snoopy, a character from the Peanuts comic strip created by Charles M. Schulz.
The award is given personally by NASA astronauts as it represents the astronauts’ own recognition of excellence. It is presented at the workplace of the recipient with the recipient’s coworkers present. The Silver Snoopy award is one of several awards overseen by the Space Flight Awareness (SFA) program at NASA.
The award consists of a sterling silver “Silver Snoopy” lapel pin flown during a NASA mission, a commendation letter (stating the mission the Silver Snoopy pin was flown on) and a signed, framed Silver Snoopy certificate. Snoopy decals and posters are also given to the recipient.
Of all the SFA Awards, the Silver Snoopy best symbolizes the intent and spirit of Space Flight Awareness. An astronaut always presents the Silver Snoopy because it is the astronauts’ own award for outstanding performance, contributing to flight safety and mission success. Fewer than 1 percent of the aerospace program workforce receive it annually, making it a special honor to receive this award.
The award is a sterling silver Snoopy lapel pin that has flown on a Space Shuttle mission, plus a certificate of appreciation and commendation letter for the employee, both signed by the astronaut.
Employees must have significantly contributed to the human space flight program to ensure flight safety and mission success. Potential awardees must meet two or more of the following criteria:
- Significantly contributing beyond their normal work requirements.
- Performing a single specific achievement which contributed towards attaining a particular program goal.
- Contributing to one or more major cost saving/cost avoidance.
- Instrumental in developing program modifications that increase quality, reliability, safety, efficiency, or performance.
- Developing or assisting with an operational improvement that increases efficiency and performance.
- Developing a process improvement of significant magnitude.
Since 1968, the program has awarded almost fifteen-thousand people with a Silver Snoopy, as of Aug, 2016.
Silver Snoopy awards are limited to no more than 1% of eligible recipients. An individual can only receive one Silver Snoopy Award in their lifetime. The award is not given posthumously or as a recognition award for an individual’s longevity, retirement, or separation from service. In the event that a pin is lost, it may be replaced with a non-flown pin at the SFA Panel’s discretion.
The latest recipient is Bill Keenan, a manager at UTC Aerospace Systems (formerly known as Hamilton-Sundstrand) oversaw the design of countless electrical systems and parts for over 120 space shuttle missions during his 35 year career at the company.
