Okay so let’s see, so far I have submitted tutorials on three characters from The Lion King movie. That means I already showed you how to draw Scar, Mufasa and Nala. I figured that I would submit another tutorial on a Lion King character that would make the character collection semi complete. Today you will be learning how to draw Simba the one animated character that makes the movie worth watching. Simba is the son of Mufasa and he is air to the throne to one day rule over the Pride Lands. There is just one problem though, Scar wants that position more than any of the lions know, including his brother Mufasa. Simba loves his father very much and he wants to one day be brave and bold like his old man. Knowing that this pint size lion will one day rule, Scar concocts a master plan to rid the cub forever and take Mufasa out of the picture. Simba is blamed for the death of his dad when he tries to rescue him from a stampede of running wildebeast that the hyenas chased down the gorge. The little cub runs away and finds himself in the middle of no where. As he lays there unconscious, a warthog and a meerkat find the dehydrated cub and bring him to a jungle oasis. There he grows into an adult resembling his father Mufasa. He returns to the pride lands after Nala finds him hidden away from the world and tells him how bad it is at the Pride Lands. Simba eventually takes over the land and becomes king. The character of Simba was sweet, innocent and funny. The writers of the movie really did do a good job. He was an easy character to draw out because he is round and bulky with little detail. This tutorial will show you how easy it is to learn how to draw Simba from the Lion King step by step. Maybe next week I will do another tutorial on either Pumbaa or Timon. Well have fun and remember, keep drawing no matter how hard it may seem. Never give up, never except mediocre work, and practice, practice, practice, because practice truly does make perfect.
