Another concept I haven't done lately is draw anime style animals. I was thinking and thinking as to what type of animal I could turn into anime form. I know I had a lion, wolf, dog, cat, and fox, but I didn't have a tiger. So here is "how to draw an anime tiger" and as you can see it is as sweet as can be. I wasn't sure if I was going to go with a serious realistic looking tiger, or the one you see here. I guess it's pretty obvious that I chose to go with an anime tiger that is child like, but also anime-ish. The idea for this tiger came from the one in Aladdin. Remember Rajah? Well I tried to make him look like Rajah after Jafar turned him into a small baby kitty when Aladdin was trying to free the princess from the sands of time. I think this tiger came out looking pretty cute. So what's my overall verdict on how I did? Okay! Drawing anime animals can be tricky at times which is why I went with a smaller cub like version. I know there are a lot of members and visitors that love anime style animals so I wanted to make sure that everyone had the chance to draw what they like. Well, I guess that's all I can really say about this anime animal. I do want to tell you guys to have fun, and be sure to let me know if you enjoyed drawing an anime tiger of your own. Adios people and peace out!

Using the face guides, draw in the shapes of the big eyes like so, then make the brows, nose and mouth. You will also need to make a chin as well as some stripes coming down the face near the cheeks and chin area. Color them in solid, and sketch some whiskers.

STEP 4.

You will now focus on getting the body drawn out. Anime animals can have simple formed bodies if they are drawn in a certain way. As you can see all you have to do is make the width of the body by drawing the sides starting from under the jaw, then draw the back feet as well as the cute toes. You will then draw the front arms and paws too. Notice how the legs are facing in towards each other, this gives the tiger a very sweet, innocent look.

For your last step all you have to do is draw in the tail, paw pads, and then inner ear detailing. When that is done you can draw, and color in the tiger stripes. Take your time so the stripes come out nice and bold. Before you color the stripes in, you might want to erase the mistakes and guides first.
