How to Draw Cartoon Lions / Jungle Animals Step by Step Drawing Tutorial for Kids, Teens, and Adults
The above picture of a cartoon lion is what we will be drawing step by step today. Find this drawing tutorial below. Get out a piece of paper, a pencil, and a black marker. Good luck.
Take out your piece of paper and your pencil..we are about to sketch. Look at the picture above. I know that this doesn’t look anything like the finished lion picture that we are attempting to draw…but I will explain why the picture above looks so strange. Well, what I was trying to show you (in the picture above) was that the lion is made up of a bunch of simple shapes. Do you see the body of the lion looks like a triangle and the face of the lion looks like a square with a circle surrounding it? Well, I want you to be able to visualize this so you can start to draw images more easily. So take out your pencil and lightly draw the lion’s simpler shapes the way that I did above. Don’t worry about mistakes because you can erase these later. Later, you will be using a pen or marker to outline the ‘right’ lines.
Now draw crosshair lines on the lion’s face (square) so you can more easily see where to place the lion’s facial features, such as the eyes. Also draw the lion’s right ear (which looks like a backwards ‘C’). You can see, by the crosshairs where to draw it…to the right and above the crosshairs. Also put a backwards ‘G’ into the ear.
Now draw zigzaggy lines in place of the circle…this is the mane of the lion. Also draw a half circle for the lion’s right eye. You can see by the crosshairs that the lion’s eye needs to be above the middle line and to the right of the center line.
Now draw the left eye as a slanted rectangle (rhombus for people who know what that means). Having the eyes such different sizes and shapes makes the picture a little comical. Also draw half circles inside each eye for the iris.
Now draw a big backwards ‘3’ for the lions ear and cheek. Also draw squiggles above the eyes for eyebrows (they sort of look like an ‘S’ and an upside down ‘S’)
Now draw a flattened out letter ‘M’ above the lions eyes for the forehead. Also draw the lion’s mouth / smile.
