STEP 1. Like with all first step you need to make some basic guidelines to aid you in your drawing quest. As you see here all you have to do is draw a circle, and then sketch in the face guides.   STEP 2. Simply draw out the shape of the lion's nose and don't forget to include the details as well as the nostrils.   STEP 3. Slowly begin sketching out the lion's muzzle and notice how the skin wrinkles up on the snout. This is common for any roaring animal such as tigers, dogs, cats, wolves, etc. Once the wrinkles and creases are all sketched in, proceed to step two.   STEP 4. Before moving onto the teeth, you will need to sketch in the whiskers like all cats, and big cats have. Once that is done you can draw in the fangs and front row of teeth. Try to make sure that the teeth align somewhat but not perfectly.   STEP 5. For step five we will be working on getting the mouth and or jaw drawn in. Start right beneath the left lip and begin sketching down, around, and back up again to the other lip. Notice there is slight curves along the way, but just keep looking at the step as a reference. Draw in the gum-line and then sketch in the detailing for the surface or texture of the tongue. Before leaving this step you will have to draw the lower fangs and bottom row of teeth.   STEP 6. Now you will need to work on getting the outline of the lion's head and jaw drawn in. The sides of the face are hairy because as you know lions are full of fluff. Be sure to sketch in the chin fuzz like so, and proceed onto the next drawing step.   STEP 7. To make things easy for all you beginning artists, I went ahead and just took out the task of actually drawing the ends of the mane. Instead the frame for the lion is going to be in the form or the mane running off the page. Sketch in the ears, as well as detail the insides of them and then use the facial guidelines to draw in the beady eyes. The lining for the eyes should be thick for added fierceness. Sketch the wrinkles above the brow and in between the eyes like so. You have to clean up your drawing before sketching in the hair strand lines for the lion's mane.   STEP 8. You are all done with drawing a lion roaring which means you can begin coloring in your work. Have an awesome day and don't forget to submit your finished artwork if you can.   Step 1. Step 2.
