How to Draw Rafiki Easy

Artist: Dawn / April 19, 2019

Step 1.

Start off with an oval guide shape for the head and face and then sketch in facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Using the guide you made, go ahead and draw out the beginning structure of Rafiki's face shape.

Step 3.

You will then begin to form the brow area and some of the head like you see here.

Step 4.

Rafiki has a dome shaped head so go ahead and draw in the head shape and then add small tufts of hair at the top. You will also draw the crease lines on the forehead as well. When that area is done you can add the shapes of his small ears and then dr   

Step 5.

Mandrills have raised ridges along the cheeks on each side of the face so go ahead and draw in the curved lines and then draw the shapes of the eyes, the eyelids and color in some pupils. You will also detail the nose tip too.

Step 6.

This step is probably the most difficult. All you have to do is draw the rest of Rafiki's head and face which is almost all hair. You will also need to draw in the bottom part of the face which is the mouth and jaw. Erase the mistakes and all the gui   

Step 7.

That's it. Once your drawing is complete you can have fun coloring Rafiki in. I do hope you enjoyed this lesson. Be sure to like, comment and share.

Description: Hello again people. Welcome back to another fun and exciting lesson. Today I have for you a few tutorials that should be liked or loved. I will start with this one on how to draw Rafiki easy, step by step. As you know the lifelike remake of The Lion King is set to be out this year so I wanted to do more lessons on some of our favorite Lion King characters, but I wanted to make sure they were done in a manner that would be easy to learn from. Rafiki may have made few appearances in the movie, but his presence was important because he was considered the wiseman that SImba learned from. I know I did a Rafiki in the past, but this one is way more colorful and a whole lot easier to learn from. Despite what people may think Rafiki is, he is not a baboon, but a Mandrill. So not only will you be learning how to draw Rafiki, you will also learn how to draw a Mandrill as well. Have fun people and don't stray too far away because there are more lessons coming your way.
