Today is the day that I get a little serious and put up some really kicken lessons that I KNOW you guys will love. I thought that there was enough kiddie stuff up, and because I have been submitting a lot of cartoon style lessons, I wanted to take a step back for a minute and give you guys some real fun. To start, I’m going to teach you "how to draw a panther tattoo", step by step. You may recall me saying that the panther is the one big cat species that is used quite often as art for tattoos and other design concepts. I wanted to try out a new type of drawing style and painting technique that turned the panther into a traditional looking tattoo design with a screaming concept that jumps off the page or in this case screen. One of the things I love most about my drawing is the body pose, and how the front paw of the panther has his claws fully extended. In all honesty I am definitely going to say that this is the best panther or drawing that I have done in a long time. If you want to use this design for a tattoo it would probably look amazing on a shoulder, forearm, calf, or even on the back part of the shoulder. If you want your panther tattoo to come out looking great just try to take your time as you tackle the lesson. This way here you will end up with something that you can be proud of. I do hope you like this depiction on "how to draw a panther tattoo"; remember to let me know what you all think. See ya later guys, I’ll be back with more drawing fun soon.

How to Draw a Panther Tattoo, Panther Tattoo

how to draw a panther tattoo, panther tattoo step 1

STEP 1.

Make a circle for the head, and then draw out a long line for the arm of the panther. Draw another circle for the paw that you will be drawing later.

STEP 2.

Simply draw out the left side of the panthers face, and then draw out the wrinkled up snout as well as the rounded tip of the snout or nose.

STEP 3.

Sketch out the actual nose tip like so, and then darken the lining for the top lining of the nose too. Add the split on the nose, and then begin sketching out the mean expression for the small almond shaped eyes. Darken the eye lines, and then sketch in the folds or wrinkles under the eyes, and then draw out the prominent brow bones, and then a crease between the head.

STEP 4.

Here you will start sketching out the shape of the panther's head and be sure to draw out the ears in a downward pose. The head should be large enough for the actual skull bone to protrude through the skin. Draw out the roaring mouth like so, and then add the gum line.

STEP 5.

Take your time as you begin drawing out the exposed teeth. The two fangs should be pointed and powerful looking. The expression that the panther is giving off should intimidate anyone that is drawing out the mouth. Detail the tongue and move to step six.

STEP 6.

This panther has a very muscular body. Begin sketching out the body at the top first which is also the back. Move along as you sketch out the muscular front legs, and then draw some muscle under the neck too.

STEP 7.

Okay, you are almost done. Sketch out the right leg and enlarged paw and notice how the toes are squared and very big. Add the muscle detailing on the top of the leg, and then draw out the left paw which is pulled back near the chin. Darken the crease where the paw bends, and then draw out the toes as well.

STEP 8.

Here is where you will start drawing out each fully extended claw on each paw. Draw the skin lines right at the base of the claws, and then draw out the bone definition at the tops of each poor as well. Sketch in some last minute muscle detailing like so, and then clean up the drawing freeing it of any visible guidelines or shapes.

STEP 9.

When you are done the drawing should come out looking like the one you see here minus the bold lines and filled in areas. The last thing you need to do is add the shading to your drawing the same way it's done here. Color in your work and you have finished drawing a panther tattoo.
