STEP 1. Are you ready to draw an awesome realistic lion? Good, start with a circle for the head, and then add another circle for the muzzle. You will also need to sketch out the shape of the lions massive mane, and then the facial guidelines.   STEP 2. With a light touch, begin sketching out the mouth, nose, and bridge for the lions face. You will then add the beginning lining for the eyes too.   STEP 3. Now the lesson starts taking an awesome turn. What you will do now is start sketching out the actual framing of the realistic lions face starting with the forehead, cheeks, and chin. When that is done you can add the nose tip, and then color in the mouth area to add depth. Finish drawing out the eyes, and then add some hair detailing to add texture to the lions mane and coat.   STEP 4. You will start adding some real detailing to the face which will help make the lion look realistic, majestic, and most importantly, like a king. Color in the white areas in the lions eyes, and then draw some whiskers, and whisker holes.   STEP 5. Now you can start sketching out one of the major parts to the lions form, the mane. You should sketch out the mane using soft, thick strokes. This will add some bold edges, and realistic hair. Once that is done you can add some minor touches to increase the realistic look.   STEP 6. asdf   STEP 7. For your final step all you need to do is add shading. But before you do that, you have to erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one. If you look at the step you will see that the shading is done in layers. This will not only add texture to the mane, it will also give the lion a full bodied head of hair. Also add some shading on the sides of the nose, and then add some color inside of the nostril.   STEP 8. When you are all done, you should have a realistic sketch that looks like the one you see here. If you want you can color this lion in, or leave it how you see it.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4.
