How to draw a Cartoon Lion
How to Draw a Cartoon Lion (advanced)
I have never been totally happy with the simple cartoon lion on this site
so I decided to show you a better one. As you will see this chap is spendid
and surprisingly easy to draw. So, lets start drawing a lion.
Stat with an eye made of a small elipse inside a larger one. The smaller
should be flled in with black ink.
A second eye is placed next to it. The black pupils can pint in any direction
you want but if they point in different directions you will probably end up
with lenny the cross-eyed lion.
Now two more ovals below the lion's eyes make the cheeks. They should touch
each other in the middle
Next Ifilled in a nose and mouth with simple black rounded shapes. The whiskers
really make the fact look cat like. Real cats have los of whiskers but 3 or
four on each cheek seems about right for a cartoon lion. Don't make the whiskers
too long. I also added eyelids to make a sleepy lion but this is optional.
This next oval defines the face shape. Keep closer to the face that you might
initially want to. All that is left to do is to add the mane and ears.
The mane is basically an egg shape with some jagged areas to represent the
hair. The ears are C and D shapes with again some jagged bits nearest the
head to show where the mane is. And suddenly we have a cartoon lion.
He doesn't look particularly fierce does he? A cuddly lion! Try to draw one
