You will now draw out the actual shape and structure of the tiger's head and or face shape. Be sure that the lining is done to make some fluffy layers on the cheeks and top of the head. Draw the ears out in a nice rounded manner.


Using the face guides, draw in the shapes of the big eyes like so, then make the brows, nose and mouth. You will also need to make a chin as well as some stripes coming down the face near the cheeks and chin area. Color them in solid, and sketch some

Description: Another concept I haven't done lately is draw anime style animals. I was thinking and thinking as to what type of animal I could turn into anime form. I know I had a lion, wolf, dog, cat, and fox, but I didn't have a tiger. So here is "how to draw an anime tiger" and as you can see it is as sweet as can be. I wasn't sure if I was going to go with a serious realistic looking tiger, or the one you see here. I guess it's pretty obvious that I chose to go with an anime tiger that is child like, but also anime-ish. The idea for this tiger came from the one in Aladdin. Remember Rajah? Well I tried to make him look like Rajah after Jafar turned him into a small baby kitty when Aladdin was trying to free the princess from the sands of time. I think this tiger came out looking pretty cute. So what's my overall verdict on how I did? Okay! Drawing anime animals can be tricky at times which is why I went with a smaller cub like version. I know there are a lot of members and visitors that love anime style animals so I wanted to make sure that everyone had the chance to draw what they like. Well, I guess that's all I can really say about this anime animal. I do want to tell you guys to have fun, and be sure to let me know if you enjoyed drawing an anime tiger of your own. Adios people and peace out!
