Step 1: Draw the Lion’s Head

  1. Begin by drawing a large circle in the center of your paper. This will be the lion’s head.
  2. Inside the circle, draw two smaller circles for the eyes. Add a small dot inside each eye to create the pupils.
  3. Draw a small triangle below the eyes for the nose. Connect the nose to the mouth with two curved lines.

Step 2: Add the Lion’s Mane

  1. Surround the lion’s head with a series of curved lines to create the mane. The mane should be big and fluffy, giving the lion a majestic look.
  2. Make the lines wavy and irregular to give the mane a natural appearance.

Step 3: Draw the Lion’s Ears

  1. On either side of the lion’s head, draw two small, curved triangles for the ears.
  2. Add a smaller triangle inside each ear for detail.

Step 4: Sketch the Lion’s Body

  1. Below the head, draw a large oval for the lion’s body.
  2. Connect the head and the body with two short lines, creating the lion’s neck.

Step 5: Add the Legs and Tail

  1. Draw four legs extending from the bottom of the body. Each leg should have a slightly curved shape and end with a paw.
  2. Add a long, curved tail extending from the back of the body. Draw a small tuft of fur at the end of the tail.

Step 6: Add Details and Color
