How to Draw Lion Eyes

Step 1.

Start off by drawing some guidelines for the lion eyes you are about to draw.

Step 2.

Next, using the facial guidelines you just made, draw two arches for each eye.

Step 3.

Finish the eye shapes off by drawing the rest of the eye which would be the bottom lids.

Step 4.

Draw out the eyeballs, color in the pupils, then sketch in some detailing at the corners of each eye right near the points.

Step 5.

For the last drawing step you can sketch in the hair that surrounds the lions eyes and face. If you want you can also sketch out the definition for the bridge of the nose. Erase the mistakes or guidelines you made.

Step 6.

Here you have the finished drawing of lion eyes. Color them in to really bring some life to this big cat.

Hey folks, I'm back with another lesson based on animal eyes. Today I will be showing you "how to draw lion eyes", step by step. The lion is another big cat that has an intense stare as they glance into your eyes. They have incredible vision especially at night. Even though lions are one of the most feared cat species on earth, they also act very much like domestic cats. They love playing chase, they love playing with one another, and they also love hunting at night. The eyes I drew look just like I expected the eyes of a lion to look. More and more requests keep pouring in for lessons on drawing animal eyes. All I can say is stay tuned or keep an eye out for the eyes you have been waiting to see. Peace people and enjoy drawing lion eyes.
