Draw in the lion's eye shapes like so, then proceed on to drawing the first limb. You will draw the front leg and paw by drawing the shoulder first, then proceed with drawing the rest of the lion's limb followed by the paw.


Draw in some of the other front leg as well as the paw.


Here you will sketch out the entire back end of the lion's body. Start with the straight back, hind leg and foot, then the stiff tail with the hairy tuft at the end.


Lastly, we will finish this logo off by drawing the chest, as well as the other back leg and paw. Erase the shapes or guides that you made in step one to clean up the drawing to prepare it for color.


Here is how your Detroit Lions logo looks without color, just simple line art. Color in the drawing to complete it.

Description: I will start my day right by uploading yet another lesson on a sports logo from a team that is based out of Detroit. Here is "how to draw the Detroit Lions", step by step.
