How to Draw a Chimera for Kids

Artist: Dawn / October 29, 2011

Step 1.

Start by making a circle for the head of the beast, and then make a face guide.

Step 2.

You will now use the shape you just made to make the outline of the lion's head. This is a very sharp and angled heart shape like you see here.

Step 3.

Before drawing in the face, draw the framing line for the lion's face. When that is done you can draw the lining for the eyes which should be a but thicker than the eyeballs. Draw in the nose tip and snout, and then make the lip lines. Sketch in ligh   

Step 4.

In this step you will sketch out the other head of the chimera which is a ram. The animal head should be drawn in a side view profile. Draw in the eyes and then make the markings for the horns, mouth, and nose.

Step 5.

Draw in the stubby body like so, and then make the toe lines on each paw. As you can see this is a very simple design concept.

Step 6.

Draw in the rest of the body like so, and then draw the back legs.

Step 7.

For a tail, you will draw in a snake head and some of the body. Make an eyeball, mouth, and rib. Clean up your new drawing and that's all.

Step 8.

The line art looks as good as you see it here. Color in the drawing and you have yourself an awesome sketch on a chimera for kids.
