Easy Sphinx Drawing Lesson

Step 1.


Let us begin by drawing the guides for the head and body. When that is done, draw the guidelines for the wings and legs.

Step 2.


You will now sketch in the profile of the Sphinx's face like so. Once that is done sketch out the ear shape and the chin hair. Add definition to the face as well.

Step 3.


For this next step all you have to do is sketch in the mane which is like a lion. When that is done add detailing to the mane and proceed to step four.

Step 4.


Here you will draw in the front leg followed by the thick paw. Add the claws and then sketch in leg detailing.

Step 5.


Continue to sketch out the body which is the chest, belly, back legs/paws and then draw the long lion tail and don't forget the tuft at the end of the tail.

Step 6.


We will draw the other leg which is left over. Draw in the claws and you will move to step seven.

Step 7.


Lastly, draw in the large wide open thick wings and you can erase the mistakes and guides.

Step 8.


Here is the line art. Now you can color in the creature before you show it off to others.
