How to draw Simba from Lion King

Step 1

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

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

Step 3

Use guidelines to define places for Simba’s legs, feet, ears and snout.

Step 4

Sketch the legs, feet, ears and snout of the lion.

Step 5

Add Simba’s toes, tail, mane and nose.

Step 6

Detail Simba’s nose and hair tuft. Carefully sketch his mane and eyes in more detail. Pay attention to the pattern on his feet.

Step 7

Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 8

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