Okay guys, I know you all loved the “Pumpkin King” lesson that I submitted, and I also know that the tiger face tutorial has so far been a big hit. For my next submission I will be teaching you guys "how to draw a lion face", step by step. To me, and almost everybody else in the world, lions and tigers are two of the more popular big cat species in existence. Even though these two cats look very different, lions and tigers are probably two of the most vicious animals in the world. When I drew the lion’s face, I wanted it to look a bit different than that of the tiger I drew. So what I did was, draw the face from a side view profile. This way here, you can get a better view of a lion’s face when looking at it from the side. I sort of exaggerated a bit with the face, but that was to only define some of the strongest features of the lion like the mane, snout, and eyes. Lion eyes are so incredibly expressive. So much so, you can almost understand what they are thinking just by looking at their face. When they are ready to pounce on something, you can tell. When they are going to play, or when they are getting annoyed, you can tell as well just by looking at their faces. Anyways, I think you will like learning "how to draw a lion face", and if you run into any problems along the way, just go back and try out the step all over again. Well that does it for this lesson; I will be back later with some more awesome fun for you all. Peace out folks, and happy drawing!
