how to draw a Lion step-by-step

Draw the lion outline with curved lines, adding eyes, pupils, and a heart-shaped nose.

Use curved lines to sketch the chin and mouth, adding small “U” lines for a furry texture, then shade “Y” mouth.

Use curved lines to outline the lion’s face and mane, including the pointed portion of the mane below the chin.

Continue drawing the mane using long, overlapping curved lines. Allow a few lines to meet at jagged points.

Enclose the bottom of the lion’s mane, using curved lines of various lengths that meet at jagged points. Texture the mane with curved lines.

Draw a lion's leg and paw with two curved lines for the sides and overlapping curved lines for the toes, and a wavy line at the top.

Use curved lines to draw the forelegs and belly, then contour the legs with short lines.

A curved line from the mane creates the animal's back, hips and rear leg, completed with overlapping curved lines for toes.

Draw a long, curved rear leg with overlapping lines for toes, extending into a textured tail.
