If you think about it, there is so many different characters you can draw from the every popular move series, The Lion King. Today, I will be showing you guys "how to draw Kovu", step by step. For those of you that don't know who exactly Kovu is, I will fill you in on the 411 right now. He is a lion from the sequel of Lion King called “The Lion King II: Simba's Pride”. He is the adopted son of Scar, and son to Zira. His mother raised him to believe in the same values, and ways that Scar believed in, and because Scar chose Kovu as his adopted son, he was also supposed to be the next king of the Pride Lands if Simba never returned when he did. In the story, he is the love interest of Kiara, which is Simba's daughter. The two meet when they are cubs, and then again when Kovu is a young adult. The whole plan was to go undercover, and find a way to be accepted by Simba so he could become part of the Simba's clan. Kovu does this by toying with Kiara's heart at first, but then he soon realizes that he loves Kiara, and thinks that Simba is a great king, and his beliefs and way of life is a much more balanced and carefree one. Zira is the one that gives Kovu his scar which is almost identical to the one Scar had. Unlike Simba, Kovu is brown in color, and had a dark brown colored mane. His eyes are probably the prettiest thing about his genetic makeup because they are like an emerald green, with yellow surroundings. In general, he is a relatively easy character to draw, and if you want to include Kiara in the drawing, you can go right ahead and do so. All you need to do to create Kiara, is follow the lesson I submitted a long while ago on Nala. Anyway, that does it for this tutorial, as you know I will return in just a few with two more on the way. Peace out my fellow peeps, and make sure you enjoy the rest of your drawing day!

STEP 2.

Now you will start sketching out the shape of Kovu's head which should be started with the ears, and then the fury cheeks. This is the cub version of Kovu, so there is no lion mane as of yet. Once the cheeks are drawn out, you can then draw the lining the creates the nose, and then the jaw or chin like so. Take your time so your character comes out right.
