How to Draw a Roaring Tiger

Step 1.

We will begin by drawing the snout of the animal like you see here.

Step 2.

Next, draw the crinkled bridge of the tiger's nose and make sure the lining is deep and dark.

Step 3.

Up next, draw the head shape, then draw in some of the tiger's ears. You will also need to draw in the nose and whiskers.

Step 4.

Sketch out the swoop style lining for the back part of the tiger's head. Be sure to make these lines thick, pointed and full of body. Color in some areas for added texture.

Step 5.

Draw in the tiger stripes like so starting at the base of the ear, down the cheek and finally along the side of the face.

Step 6.

You can now draw the ends of the tiger's neck and head like so. This is also going to be the roaring mouth too. Add some coloring or shading as well.

Step 7.

Finally, draw in the teeth, the opposite side of the roaring mouth, the tiger's tongue and then shade in the inside of the cheek. Erase the mistakes if you made any.

Step 8.

Here is the line art when you are done. Color in the tiger and show off your work.

Here is a simple lesson on how to draw a roaring tiger. It's always nice to draw animals in their more recognized expressive forms. For tigers it just so happens to be roaring or sleeping. This shouldn't be a complicated tut, but if you are new to the drawing game you might come into some bumps in the road. Nevertheless I'm confident that you will have fun drawing a roaring tiger anyway.
