How to Draw Vitaly, Madagascar 3

Artist: Dawn / April 20, 2012

Step 1.

Begin your drawing by making a round shape for the head guide of Vitaly. You will then add the facial guidelines like you see here.

Step 2.

Next, using the shape you just made, begin drawing out the actual structure of Vitaly's head as well as his small ears. Notice how the cheeks are high which makes the fur tapper or thin out into points.

Step 3.

Using the facial guidelines you will start sketching out the shapes of the eyes starting with the top eye lids. Draw out the large shaped nose which is also the nose bridge, then add the marking lines on the ears.

Step 4.

Finish drawing out the eyes, and then color in the pupils. You will also need to draw the marking line on the nose for the actual tip, then add the nostril holes. Draw the slit from under the nose, then draw out the mouth which is in a smirky smile.

Step 5.

You will be finishing off your drawing of Vitaly by drawing out the thick shape of the neck and then sketch in the marks for the cheeks, as well as the long whiskers and teeth.

Step 6.

Before you start drawing out the tiger stripes you will need to erase the guidelines and shapes that you made as well as the mistakes. Once that is complete you can go ahead and begin drawing the stripes as well as color them in.

Step 7.

Here is what the finished drawing of Vitaly looks like when you are all done. Color him in to really make this Russian tiger look confident again.

Description: I don’t know if any of you guys heard, but there is a brand new Madagascar movie coming out and it is full of animals that we love. Of course our old friends Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are all going to be present, but there are a few more characters that will probably capture our hearts as well. Today I will be uploading the three new additions to Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted. I will start with a Russian tiger that lost his love for acting. Here is "how to draw Vitaly", step by step. Vitaly is like I said a Russian tiger that is part of a circus in London. Vitaly was once a macho tiger that loved to act in front of a crowd, but after a close encounter with death, he no longer has the passion for it anymore. What could have possibly happened to a tiger that could make him cower to such a drastic episode? Well, his act included jumping through a ring of fire, but all it took was getting burned a little too badly for him to ever think about performing again. Vitaly is also the leader of the traveling circus, so he definitely needs to find the confidence to get back in the mix of things. Hopefully a visit from Alex and his friends will help Vitaly regain the courage he needs to do so. I hope you enjoy drawing Vitally from Madagascar 3, because I had a lot of fun recreating him. Adios people and enjoy!
