How to Draw Simba, Lion King

Artist: Dawn / May 20, 2011

Step 1.

This is going to be a very similar tutorial from the one I just submitted on Lion King lions. Begin with two shapes, and then add some guidelines for the neck and body, and then the face.

Step 2.

Sketch out Simba's head like you see here and be sure to add the fuzz on his cheeks, and the top of his head. Don't forget to draw the ears too.

Step 3.

Sketch in the lining for the ears like so, and then draw out the large eyes and then draw in the lining to form his nose, and side moth lines.

Step 4.

Sketch in the eyeballs, and then color in the pupils. You will next need to draw out the mouth line and then draw in the whiskers. Sketch in some inner ear hair, and then move to step five after you finish the nose.

Step 5.

Now it's time to draw out the body starting with the back of his neck and then draw the back. Sketch in the front legs, and then sketch out the chest and chest hair.

Step 6.

Draw the front paws and toes, and then draw out the hind legs and hind foot.

Step 7.

You are now almost nearing the end of the tutorial, draw in the toes and then draw out Simba's elbow and stomach.

Step 8.

For the last step all you have to do is draw out the tail, and like before sketch out Simba's tuft at the tip. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 9.

It's now tome to color him in and get him with the rest of the pride. I hope you had fun drawing Simba!
