Instead of submitting a lesson on a chibi Pokémon or an animal for kids, I thought that making a tutorial on an animal species that I haven’t done yet would be cool to see, and learn from. Up next is a tutorial on "how to draw a lynx", step by step. This species of wildcat is sometimes confused with the Bobcat and that may very well be because they both come from the same family. In fact, bobcats are one of the smallest versions of Lynx, along with the Canada lynx. These cats are known for their remarkable features and their thick hearty bodies. They have small or short tails, and their ears have these long strands of black colored tufts that stand erect right at the tip. One of the cool things about the lynx is how they have these beards that seem to resemble a lion’s mane. Almost all forms of the lynx cat have brown to gold colored coats with dark colored spots scattered around the body. Another characteristic of the lynx is the white fur that spreads from the chin, chest, belly, and on the insides of their front legs and thighs. They have large paws and are heavily padded to deal with the everyday winter weather as they have to walk almost all the time on snow covered surfaces. When you think of a lynx a question that often arises is the curiosity as to how big these animals are. A good way to compare their size is to know the types of climates they come from. For instance, the Eurasian lynx is the largest species of lynx but the Canada lynx have much longer limbs and heartier bodies. The paws on a Canada lynx are very big, soft, and padded. The Eurasian lynx have slender bodies because their hair or coat is not as dense as the Canada lynx. This is due to different climates that these animals live in. When drawing a lynx you can be sure that it will be a challenge. This is because you will have to draw the highly detailed faces, and the bodies that are filled with detail and design. I figured out a way to show you "how to draw a lynx", in a very simple way that almost anyone can tackle. That’s all I have to say for this lesson, I will be back with another in a few. Adios and peace out!
