Before I get to my last tutorial, I wanted to submit something that I drew yesterday. It is another tiger but this time it's going to be on tribal art. Today, I will be teaching you "how to draw a tribal tiger", step by step. This design came to me when I was working. I was watching a movie from the corner of my eye and seen a figure with a tattoo that covered the whole back and it was in the form of a tribal design in the shape of a tiger. Now obviously I love creating new works of art and because of this I wanted to develop my own version of a tribal tiger. I took some of the same body poses from a previous drawing tutorial that I uploaded last year on a very cool tiger sketch. Since I love this animal, making a newer more improved version was incredibly fun and challenging. This tribal art would also make a great tattoo addition for anybody that is looking for a drawing on a tiger in a wispy tribal form. There is so many ways you can tweak this sketch, and if you are an experimental artist at heart, you should try to add your own personal touches to make a creation that is truly unique. All beginning artists, and skilled artists use pictures of some sort to use as a reference. Especially if you are about to draw a portrait or character from pop culture. Anyways, this would make a great challenge tutorial for you novice artists that are stepping up to the intermediate bracket. I had fun making a tutorial on "how to draw a tribal tiger", and like always I tried to make sure that the steps are easy enough for anyone to follow. I may or may not return with more drawing fun. If I stay away I will be back around eight for another Livestream session. So I hope I see everyone there. Peace out people and enjoy the rest of your drawing day on this Thanksgiving Eve.

How to Draw a Tribal Tiger

Begin with a circle for the head, and then sketch out the shape of the tigers body. Don't forget to add the front legs.

STEP 2.

Now you can begin sketching out the shape of the tribal tigers body starting with the head. When that is done make the ears fluffy cheeks, and then the chin. When that is done, draw or color out the nose tip, and then add some solid coloring around the tips of the ears, cheeks, and then when that is done you can draw the whole form of the body. This should be a lot easier then drawing out a real version of a tiger. Make the front paws and claws, and then draw out the long tail.
