How to Draw a Cartoon Tiger

Artist: Dawn / September 15, 2010

Step 1.

Start by drawing a circle for the head, and muzzle. Add the guidelines for the face, and neck. Next, draw another shape for the upper body, and yet another for the lower body. Draw the lining for the chest, and add the limb lines for the legs, and ta   

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the shape of the cartoon tiger's cheeks, and chin like so, and then draw in the top lid lines for the eyes.

Step 3.

Finish sketching out the tiger's face by drawing in the other side of the head, and then the nose, snout, and mouth. Next, add the eyebrows, and finish drawing the eyes. Start the lining for the neck and chest and some of the shoulder.

Step 4.

Draw the back of the neck, and then go straight down to form the back, thigh, and front legs. Add some minor detailing inside of the ear, and draw the whiskers.

Step 5.

Finish sketching out the front legs, back legs, and all the paws. Add some toes, and nails, and then draw in the long tail.

Step 6.

Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one, and then draw in all the stripes on the cartoon tigers body like so. Once that is done you are all done.

Step 7.

This is how your drawing looks when you are all done. Color in the cartoon tiger wither white or the typical tiger orange. I hope you had fun guys!

Description: Out of all the cartoon animals I have ever submitted over time, I can't believe I never did a tutorial on “how to draw a cartoon tiger”, step by step. I came to this discovery the other day when my seven year old sister asked me to find her a tutorial on one of my cartoon tigers. As I searched all over Dragoart for the lesson, I came to the conclusion that I didn't even do one. I was so incredibly shocked because I love tigers, and for me not to have a tutorial that teaches folks to “draw a cartoon tiger” of their own, really disappointed me. I want to say sorry to you all that has been scouring the site for such a lesson. I wish I would have known sooner that there was no versions of a tiger in cartoon form. I know I did a baby tiger, but never drew a cartoon tiger. Anyways, now that this lesson is available to you all, I hope you will use it to the full extent. The steps are easy to follow which is why you should have no problem completing the task. I will be back in a bit with more drawing fun, so try and stay tuned in to see what I have. Adios people and have fun.
