How to Draw Simba and Nala
You will be drawing two lion cubs, which means the work will be double. Start by drawing circle shapes for the heads, and then add the shapes for the bodies. Next draw the leg lines.
Start sketching out the shapes of the heads starting with the cheeks, and jaw lines. The same lining should rise up for the start of Simba, and Nala's ears.
As you can see, you will begin sketching the top shapes of their heads like you see here. This includes the ears too. Next, add the eyebrows, nose and muzzle. Use the facial guidelines to draw in the shapes of the eyes, and then begin drawing the sho
Draw the chests, and the rest of the front legs, and then the backs of their bodies like you see here. Add some whiskers, and the detailing inside of their mouths. Draw whiskers, and then add some detailing inside the ears, nose tip, and that's it.
For your last drawing step, sketch out the paws both front and back, and then draw some of the back legs. Lastly, draw the tails, and then begin erasing all the guidelines.

Description: There is many different things or characters I can draw, but yesterday I chose to do something different and unexpected. I was watching the Lion King with my sister yesterday and the scene when Nala and Simba go with Zazu to the water hole came on. When I was watching the two lion cubs sing and animal dance, it gave me the idea to do a lesson on "how to draw Simba and Nala", step by step. As you know, I already have a tutorial on both Nala, and Simba. Even though I drew those two Disney characters back in 2008, they still look decent. I guess you could say that this tutorial is an upgraded version of the two main characters from The Lion King. Simba is by far my favorite animal in the movie, but I also like Pumba, Timon, Ed, Scar, and Mufasa. All the other secondary characters are what you call, “nice additions”. The lesson should be pretty simple because you are drawing both of the lion cubs from the front view. Drawing front viewed objects, people, or character is sometimes easier because you are not burdened with drawing the full length, or compounds of the body. For example, when you "draw Simba and Nala", all you are doing is sketching out the fronts aspect of their heads, and faces, and the chest, and front legs an paws. All the rest can't be seen when in front view. Anyways, if you're a fan of Lion King, you will love this tutorial because you get to draw Nala and Simba together as a pair. I have five more lessons coming your way so stay tuned in to see what they are. Peace out people of Dragoart.com!
