How to draw a lion

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the picture. Draw two ovals for the head and body of the lion. Draw a line, which will act as the center of his head.

Step 2

Draw the shapes of the lion’s body and neck. Add a smooth guideline for his tail.

Step 3

Define with guidelines the places for the lion’s legs, ears and eyes.

Step 4

Sketch the legs, ears and snout of the lion.

Step 5

Draw the nose and lower jaw of the animal. Add his toes and tail.

Step 6

Detail the lower jaw, legs, belly and tail of the lion. Sketch his nose, mane and eyes.

Step 7

Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to detail. Pay attention to the shape of the eyes.

Step 8

Contour the lion, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the ground. Erase all guidelines.
