Step 1 – Lion cub’s head
Since all babies have large heads, we’ll start by outlining it.
Step 2 – Paws and tail
We do not see much of a cub’s body, so we simply draw front and back legs and the cub’s tail.
Step 3 – Developing our lion cub’s face
Add little rough hairy lines on most of the cub’s face and make it smile.
Step 4 – Eyes and ears
Draw big wide-opened eyes and even bigger ears.
Step 5 – Paws time
Now it is time to draw front legs and paws.
*Don’t forget that the cub’s chest right below the chin should be in front of the legs.
Step 6 – Hind legs and tail
This one is the easiest – just make sure that the hind paws are not lower than the front ones.
Step 7 – Bringing some color
When you are adding color to your lin cub’s drawing, four colors would be enough to get started. The chest and the belly are usually lighter.
Step 8 – Finishing cub’s drawing
Leave places for highlights in the lion cub’s eyes – it will make them stand out more. Your little baby lion cartoon is cute and ready to be hanged on the fridge or your kids’ art gallery wall!
