How to Draw a Cartoon Lion
This simple lion uses similar proportions to the cartoon
bear on this website.
Start with five elipses as shown above.Then colour them in.
You can see the shape of the Lion's head clearly now although it doesn't
look much like a lion yet. Let's add features...
I added eyes, nose and mouth in black... Then I rubbed it all out and started
again from step 2 This time i coloured my lion in better colour than grey
and I drew the eyes as rounded rather than slits.
And then added white highlights to the eyes and nose.
The final step was to add an orange mane and suddenly we have a cartoon lion.
Now lets not stop just yet. Why not add some 'hair' and play around with
the proportions to see if we can improve things. We can also add shading.
After a bit of mucking around we could end up with dozens of individual lions.
There is a New Cartoon Lion that I think
is much better.
Good luck and keep drawing!
