How to draw a lion in six simple steps
Today we’re drawing a lion in six very easy steps. I like to start with the face and but this time, if you want a really fluffy mane and no line – draw the outer oval in step one in pencil so you can erase it later on. Everything else can be inked directly.
I thin my lion is a pretty happy lion so I’ve made him a performer in a zoo and given him something to stand on. You can put your lion anywhere – just sketch in a background for him.
I colored the lion with Tombow markers – sometimes using the color at full strength and other times dipping the pen in water to make a more water color effect.
Once you’ve got a feel for making your lion why not try some other poses for him – maybe lying down or running?
