Today I won’t be starting off the day with a tutorial based on a fictional character from a video game or cartoon series. Instead, I will be submitting a lesson on an animal species that is one hundred percent real. I have been asked to make a tutorial on “how to draw a liger”, step by step. I know what you’re thinking because I thought the same thing too. To answer the question, yes ligers are real. They are a hybrid species of the mating between a male lion and a female tiger. The end result of a male lion and female tiger mating is a humongous big cat that is so much larger then a lion or a tiger. They are said to be gigantic in size and because this is a hybrid species, a liger can’t breed with another liger; this is due to the fact that they are born sterile. There are also other hybrid big cats of the same species. For instance, there is also a tigon, which is a male tiger mating with a female lion. One of the cool things about the liger is how they come out looking like oversized lions, but with strips that blend with their hides. I think everyone knows that lions do not like swimming whatsoever right? Well, ligers love swimming because of the fact that they are part tiger. Tigers are more like dogs in a sense because even though they are cats, they love swimming. Some famous ligers like Hercules from Florida was actually not breed intentionally. The liger Hercules was a product of an accidental mating between a lion and tiger. Anyways, the tutorial came out pretty sweet and I think a lot of you guys will enjoy teaching yourself "how to draw a liger". I know for a fact I had fun creating this hybrid animal species. Have fun guys and stay tuned in because I have a lot more in store for you all to enjoy.
