Before I get into submitting the easy stuff, I wanted to start the day with a screaming shout. Everyone knows I like big cats of the world, and because of this I have done numerous drawings on all kinds of different cats that can be found worldwide. For instance, there is tutorials on how to draw lions, panthers, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, and they are all awesome and roaring for attention. The other day I sketched out a drawing on another famous cat that has been admired probably all of it’s existence. I really love the way it came out because it has all the ferociousness, and ferocity that these cats are known to have. Today, I will be teaching you "how to draw a black panther", step by step. I know I already drew a black panther, but it was a long while ago. There is no harm in drawing another version that is in full attack mode. The first tutorial I did on one of these cats of night, is drawn to make the panther look almost siren and calm as it walks down the mountain top. Unlike mountain lions, black panthers are best known to living in the wilderness of the rain forest where they can hide, and blend in. They are also known as being the jaguar, but the reason why they call them black panthers is because they are all black in color. The sketch or lesson itself is going to be easy, but not too easy. There is going to be a challenge there when attempting to "draw a black panther" in type of pose that it is in. This is because there is a lot of muscle definition and detail, and I also tried to captivate the pure essence of the intense look that these animals have. Even though black panthers are incredibly beautiful, they are also very fierce, predatorial, and have a lot of killing drive. Instead of coloring in the eyes the pretty yellow they normally have, I decided that a fiery hot red would bring out the meanness, or madness that this cat is portraying through the picture. In general, I think you will have a blast drawing this newer version of a black panther. I look forward to hearing your views and comments that you have to share. Well, that it guys. I will be back soon with three more tutorials coming your way. Peace out people!

How to Draw a Black Panther

how to draw a black panther step 1

STEP 1.

The first thing you need to draw is the panther's body frame of pose. This is going to be done by making three shapes in total with the smallest one being for the head. Next, overlap a larger circle for the upper body, and then a smaller shape for the hind end. Lastly for this first step, draw in the guidelines for the face, legs, and tail like so.

STEP 2.

Begin sketching out the actual face structure for this black panther like you see here. The ears are not erect, instead they are in a down position. The jaw and cheeks are probably the most predominate of the facial structure. Once the head is taken care of, you can then move onto drawing out the humped back arch which is a natural reaction when a panther or any big cat gets into a defensive stance.

It's now time to sketch out the ferocious shape of the eyes, and then draw in the lips of the mouth like so. You will then add the whiskers, and crinkles on the bridge of the nose like so. Add some detailed lining for the ears, and then between the eyes. Lastly, draw out the inside gum line for the roaring mouth, and start the drawing process of the chest, and front legs.
