Before I submit the other alien from the new Ben 10 Ultimate Alien, I want to upload a lesson on a character from Disney's movie, The Lion King. As you know I have tutorials on Simba, Mufasa, Scar, Nala, Timon, and Pumba. If you think about it, I still have a few more main characters to go if I want to complete the collection. Today, I will be showing you "how to draw Zazu", step by step. Even though he can be very annoying, Zazu helps keep things in line because he is an aid to the king which is Mufasa. I guess you could call Zazu a scout or a majordomo. What type of bird is Zazu anyway? Well, he is a red-billed Hornbill. These birds resemble toucans in a lot of ways because of their bills, and the color of their feathers. He also serves as a babysitter sometimes when young Simba and Nala want to go on epic journeys. There is a particular scene in the movie when Simba and Nala are singing about what it's going to be like when Simba is king. They are also trying to shake Zazu so they can go exploring on their own. I feel that he is a very important character, and without his comic relief, we would depending solely on Timon and Pumba. Anyway, I love the way he came out, and if you are a big Lion King fan, you will enjoy this tutorial that shows you “how to draw Zazu”, step by step. All the instructions are easy to follow, and understand as you go through them one by one. When you are done you would have completed the lesson, and gained new knowledge on drawing another Disney character. I shall be back with more peeps so stay tuned in.
