How to Draw Shere Khan

Artist: Dawn / December 8, 2012

Step 1.

Make the basic guides and shapes to make a workable mannequin so you can have support for drawing Shere Khan.

Step 2.

Draw the forehead, then sketch out the shape of the snout, cheeks, the nose and smile.

Step 3.

Next, we will finish the head and face shape by sketching out the other cheek, the bottom part of the face which is the mandible and chin. Make small ears, then move to step four.

Step 4.

Draw the markings on the face, which should also include the stripes and whisker holes. Draw the detailing for the nose which is also the nose tip. Draw the eyebrows, shapes of the eyes, the actual eyeballs, then add definition to the inside of the m   

Step 5.

Draw the shape of Shere Khan's neck followed by the back, chest, and front legs. Shere Khan has a very thick body so make sure not to draw his limbs too skinny.

Step 6.

Finish drawing the back as well as the rounded area for the buttocks. Draw the thigh which is in a sitting pose. Draw the toes.

Step 7.

Draw the long tail, then draw Shere Khan's front paws or toes.

Step 8.

You are almost done. Once you draw the marking line on the neck, chest, stomach you can prepare the drawing for the tiger stripes by erasing the mistakes and guides.

Step 9.

Lastly, draw the tiger stripes and take your time as you do this because you don't want a fierce Shere Khan looking a mess because his stripes are done right. When you have finished, you can erase the mistakes.

Step 10.

Here you go folks. A nice drawing of Shere Khan. Color this tiger in to call this drawing complete.

Description: If you are a fan of Disney's recreation of 'The Jungle Book', you should also be a fan of the tiger that tries to eat Mowgli. Today I will be showing you "how to draw Shere Khan", step by step. He is one mean tiger that has a desire to kill the man cub (Mowgli) and any other animal or beast that gets in his way. Shere Khan is probably one of the meanest villains I was introduced to when I was a kid. I must have had all the Disney VHS tapes growing up as a child and those same tapes where passed down to two more siblings before they became obsolete. The Jungle Book is by far one of my favorite films. Mowgli, Bagheera, and Baloo. Of course we can't forget about Raksha, who is the mother wolf that found Mowgli and raised him like one of her own cubs. Drawing Shere Khan is going to be fun because it's always entertaining making new drawings on tigers. Besides, don't you think that drawing another Jungle Book character is overdo? Have fun people and remember to leave some comments and favs of you like. Adios peeps.
