What a beautiful day it is on this wonderful Thursday afternoon. Spring is coming and with the temperatures rising daily, remnants of fun days are starting to surface. Today I am going to submit a pretty cool tutorial on "how to draw a mountain lion", step by step. I chose to do this animal as a drawing and lesson because I was reading an article that the species is close to becoming endangered for some parts where they can be found. Mountain lions are also referred to as the puma, cougar, and even a catamount. Unlike lions and tigers, the mountain lion likes to live alone because they are solitary animals. Habitats for this big cat species varies as they can be found all the way to the south in the Florida swamps, to all the way up north as they reside in the Canadian forests. Not only is the mountain lion solitary animals, they are also very territorial. One of the most amazing characteristics about the cougar or mountain lion, is how they hunt for prey. They will literally follow an animal for a while until the right time approaches where all they have to do is pounce on the prey and sink it's massive canines to the back of the neck. They mainly feed on deer, but they are also known to eat raccoons, coyotes, and believe it or not but, they even eat the very prickly porcupine. How mountain lions do this, I don't know. Anyways I drew and made a very easy to follow lesson on "how to draw a mountain lion" that I think you will like. It's of a full body which is nice because you actually learn to draw the whole cat instead of just a head. I hope you have fun, I will be back soon with more exciting stuff for you to draw. Peace out people, and enjoy your day.
