Description: Here he is one of the funniest characters from the Disney movie "The Lion King". I figured I would show you all how to draw Timon since he is such a memorable character from the animated movie. Lets talk a bit about Timon before we learn how to draw him shall we? First off he is as you know a meerkat, but not just any meerkat. Timon has a spunk about him that is hard to ignore. He has the whole world planed out before he even knows how it works. He also thinks that he knows everything and anything as well. I mean if it wasn't for his best friend Pumba the warthog, he wouldn't have any fresh ideas blow up in his mind at all. Timon and Pumba are what you call loners. They travel together, they live together, and they even sleep together. They are as close as two friends can be. Although Timon thinks he is the brains out of the duo, it is Pumba that is almost always correct. For instance, it was Pumba that suggested they should take Simba in and train him to like bugs instead of meat so that he can come in useful one day. It was also Pumba that was right about what the bright dots were in the sky. He answered "they are balls of gas burning millions of miles away", and then Timon said that they were "fire flies". See what I mean? He is absolutely hilarious. Everything that comes out of his mouth is some sort of joke or smart comment which ends up with me having a burst of laughter from it. One thing that will always remain memorable is their motto that they live by "Hakuna Matata”, which of course means “no worries”. They teach Simba to live by this same motto but even though he does, he can’t help but feel guilty for his father’s death. Anyway Timon is a real bright comedic character in the film. In this tutorial you will learn how to draw Timon from The Lion King step by step. I hope you like this one; I think it came out good. I will be back in a while so hang in there folks.
