How to Draw a Panther Tattoo

Artist: Dawn / May 5, 2020

Step 1.

Let's get started shall we. Go ahead and draw out the guidelines and shapes to create the frame for your panther.

Step 2.

Next begin to draw out the shape of the muzzle area which should also be filled with crinkles for the texture of the snarling face. Don't forget to draw out the nose too.

Step 3.

Using the head and facial guidelines, draw out the shape of the panther's face and then draw in the shapes of each eye. You will add detailing throughout the face like you see here and also draw the long shape of the jaw.

Step 4.

Next, draw the ears like so and detail the forehead.

Step 5.

We will work on getting the teeth drawn in and the definition inside the mouth like the tongue and gum lines.

Step 6.

Next, draw the front legs and paws. The claws should be very extreme to add that amount of power behind the beast. Add detailing through the paws and legs and don't forget to add detail to the toes to create the paw pads.

Step 7.

We will now draw in the very large skull that the panther is crouched upon. Be sure to draw in the defined shape of the brow bones for the skull and the amount of detailing to the skull as well. Give the whole drawing that intense look and feel.

Step 8.

All you have to do now is draw in the background, color in the sockets for the eyes and nose of the skull and draw out the whiskers and whisker holes for your panther. When that is done you can erase all the mistakes and visible guides.

Step 9.

That's it, you are all done. Now you can color in your drawing.
