Well this next tutorial is going to be on another Disney character from a very funny animated movie. The movie is called Tarzan and you will be learning how to draw Tarzan. The reason why I love this movie is because you can watch it over and over again and it will never get old. It remains funny, it keeps its vibrancy and the characters all seem new and unique. As some of you may know Tarzan is about a young family that takes refuge on a tropical island off the coast of Africa and they wind up calling it home. They build a tree house to stay above any threatening animals and they provide themselves with food and water to sustain themselves. Unfortunately a leopard named Sabor winds up killing the family in a brutal attack and the only surviving member was a small infant. A silverback gorilla named Kala hears a cry far off in the distance, as she follows the sound she finds herself looking among a human baby that she decides to adopt as her own to replace the one that she lost with her partner Kerchak to the same beast that killed the young baby’s parents. Although Kerchak doesn’t except the baby he allows Kala to keep him because he knows that she needs to fill a void from the loss of their son. She decides to call the human boy Tarzan and he grows up as a human gorilla with his new family. Along the way he makes friends with a young female gorilla named Terk, and a maroon colored elephant named Tantor. Together they grow up and become the best of friends. He also falls in love with a young English woman named Jane and she and her father absolutely loves the silverback gorilla. Tarzan is a character that is always looking for acceptance by his gorilla father. He eventually takes over as leader of the gorillas when Kerchak losses his life to Sabor. Tarzan takes out the blood thirsty leopard and is then accepted by the one person that he has been longing for his whole life. The story ends with Tarzan and Jane happily married living in the same tree house that his human parents built when he was just an infant. I love the movie and I want to show you how to draw Tarzan step by step. I will be back in a bit so stick around people there is more to come. Who knows maybe I will show you how to draw Tarzan characters in future tutorials.
