How to Draw a Cute Lion Girl

Step 1.

First, create a circle for your lion girl's head. Then, create facial guidelines by drawing a curved line to make the face symmetrical, then two more lines going across the circle to help you place the eyes. Make sort of an oval shape next. this is for the torso. Next, draw the line of action from the bottom of the circle to a little further down past the oval you just drew. After all that, make sort of a rectangular shape for the hips. Finally, draw circles and lines connecting those circles for the hands, feet, arms, and legs. Now you're ready for the next step!

Step 2.

Okay, this next step I have outlined in red. First, the outlining. Outline all the guidelines you made to form the torso and limbs. Make sure when you outline her face you make a little bump out at her face to form a chin. Next, to make the eyes, make the outline of the eye first. Then you may make the pupil. Make little curved lines just above the eye to form eyebrows. Time for the next step!

Step 3.

Here comes the fun part! First, add two lion-like ears. One more of a half circle because it's further away, and the other a little rounder to show that it's closer to you. Next, give your lion girl a hairstyle! It doesn't have to be like mine, anything will do. Know what? Make her bald for all I care!It's your drawing, not mine. Next, make her dress. Sort of flare her skirt out a little to make it look more realistic. Then, Add the top part of her dress. Add lining and some buttons. Next, make her paws and shoes! Make the ends of the paws poofy so they look furry. For the shoes, make those poofy too and add a little line across her legs to create boots, or socks, either way. Oh, and don't forget her tail!

Step 4.

Okay, erase all your guidelines and extra lines (if you haven't already) and you're done! You don't have to color yours like mine, like I said earlier, it's yours! I hope you had a good time drawing my cute lion girl! Have fun coloring :D
