Description: Did I tell you guys yet that there is another Ice Age that came out called Ice Age: Continental Drift? Well if I didn't I'm telling you now. This first lesson I am uploading is going to be on a character from said movie. Here is "how to draw Shira", step by step. Shira made her movie debut in the fourth installment of Ice Age. She is voiced by Jennifer Lopez and has a face that matches her voice actor's. Shira is from Gutt's crew but she leaves his crew to join Diego and his band of animals. I think Shira is the love to Diego, but I'm not sure. Anyways, drawing Shira from Ice Age should be simple enough. After all, drawing saber tooth tigers is always fun regardless how hard the task might be. I will be back with more fun for you all folks so stay tuned in.
