How to Draw a Lioness Head

Artist: Dawn / August 27, 2013

Step 1.

Draw a head which is in the form of a circle, then draw another circle for the nose. You will add some facial guides as well as the mouth and nose.

Step 2.

Using the guides you just made, sketch in the shape of the forehead like so, then sketch out the broad shape of the nose. Draw the lips for the mouth, then move to step three.

Step 3.

Finish sketching out the shape of the head which also should have a hairy jaw and chin line. Draw out the ears and then proceed to step four.

Step 4.

You will sketch out the one eye and add some shading to add depth. Add the detailing for inside the ears, then sketch in the whiskers on the lips, and on the chin. You will also add whiskers above the eyebrows. Add the detailing to the nose, face and   

Step 5.

For the last step all you have to do is draw out the shape of the lioness' neck, then sketch in some hairy fluff. Erase the mistakes you made throughout the lesson, then you are all done.

Step 6.

Here is the line art for your lioness. Now you can color her in. I hope you had fun folks.

Description: This is the second lesson I have for you guys that I took a lot of time with. Up next, I will show you "how to draw a lioness head", step by step. Again, this is a sketched drawing that I really love how it turned out. Once in a while I will sometimes surprise myself when I create something that turns out awesome. This is actually the lioness that was laying down in the brush. I'm sort of telling a story or setting up a scenario so that you can use the rest of your imagination to finish what I started. You can either say this lioness is focused on a zebra, or it wants in with the play that is going on under the old Savannah tree. No matter what the case may be it's always fun drawing lions whether they are male or female. Have fun people and enjoy.
