How to Draw Scar from Lion King

Step 1.

Okay first step. Here you will be drawing out all the guidelines and circle shapes of scar. Starting at the top draw a circle for the face and a rounded snout for the muzzle. Then draw the rounded shapes for the front paws,and for the back legs. After your starting sketch looks like the one above move down to step 2.

Step 2.

As you can see the lines you drew in step 1 make sense in this step. Here you will draw in Scars face by sketching in the eyes and nose. Take your time when drawing this part of scar, as it will shape up the character of him as well. To create accurate features, swiftly draw your lines.

Step 3.

Let's start drawing the furry chin that makes him seem sorta like a rugged and sinister character. The mouth line is darkened a lot more than the rest of the lines. To finish off, draw in void eye shapes.

Step 4.

Now, take a deep breath and get ready for drawing the overall body for Scar. When you draw his body, start off with the mane. This is important because of the vulnerability to make mistakes when you draw the chest and spine. Work your way from the top to the bottom; this way you won't smudge your pencil lines.

Step 5.

Here you're basically going to draw the limbs. Take your time when you work with this. I would recommend checking other resources on the Lion King styled bodies. Normal lion bodies aren't so thin and curvy. They're usually full of muscles, so therefore they look a bit plump compared to Lion King style. Scar has a lot of sharp curves and scruffy fur. It's best to get references of him in order to understand the character of him.

Step 6.

Lastly, finish off other details that complete the true character of Scar. Take your time and look over your work. Even the tiniest mistake can mess up the overall drawing.

Step 7.

And this is what your lion king character should look like when you are totally done. All that is left to do is color him in. That concludes this tutorial on how to draw Scar from the Lion King character line up. I hope you had as much fun as I did. I will see you all next time.

Here is another cartoon character tutorial on how to draw Scar from Lion King. These Disney characters from the movie are truly memorable and smartly played out. I think all the developers that brought the Lion King together did an extraordinary job especially when it came to choosing the actors for each role of characters throughout the movie. This tutorial is on Scar, and why did I choose Scar you ask? Well because he is the slyest character in the flick. He was voiced by Jeremy Irons which happens to be one of my favorite actors. He did an excellent job voicing Scar his voice matched the image and everything. The movie was released in 1994 and I can remember when I first heard about the movie. Hollywood made a big stink about it and they had good reason to, I mean the animated movie won tons of awards and the whole nine. As it goes Scar is the younger brother of Mufasa, and he is also Simbas uncle. Now, Scar has a vision to rule over pride rock when his brother steps down or dies, but the problem is Simba is next in line not Scar. He develops a master plan that involves three incredibly gullible Hyenas that will basically do anything for food or a bone for that matter. The names of the threesome are Shenzi, Banzi, and the crocked eyed Ed, who thinks everything is a joke. Scars plan is to gather up all the hyenas and have them as a standing army just waiting for the day they take over the pride lands. He tells little Simba that his father Mufasa has a surprise for him and asked if he could send him to the gorge and wait for him. As Simba waits patiently, a huge stampede of wildebeast come crashing down to where Simba happens to be. Zazu happens to see that the little cub is in trouble and summons Mufasa to help save his son from total annihilation. He comes to his rescue but gets stuck in the fiasco, Mufasa then tries to climb up the rocky mountain where Scar happens be waiting. He sees Mufasa helpless as he struggles on the mountain side. Mufasa begs for Scar to help him up, Scar with a devilish smirk on his face takes his paws and digs his claws into the paws of Mufasa and throws him clear of the mountain side. That is a short summery of Scar from Lion King, and this tutorial will show you how to draw Scar step by step with detailed instructions. I hope you have fun with this one. Enjoy.
