STEP 1. Start by drawing three simple shapes for your simple lion. There should be a circle for the head, muzzle or snout, and body. Connect the head and body line with a neck line.   STEP 2. Here you will first draw the eyes, and then the shape of the snout. You can easily do this by starting under the right eye, and make a lump for the cheek. Next use that same lining to draw the rest of the muzzle. Draw the nose lining, and then add a smile.   STEP 3. Draw out the rest of the muzzle by sketching out the shape of the lower chin, and jaw. Once that is done incorporate that same lining and shape it into a head. Draw the outline of the lion's mane, and then color in some pupils. Detail the snout, and finish the nose.   STEP 4. Draw the one ear that sticking out of the mane like so, and then begin drawing the simple lion's body starting with the neck, chest, and left leg and foot. Next, draw the arch for his back.   STEP 5. Look how good your simple lion is looking. All you have to do here before you move onto your last drawing step is, draw the back leg, and sketch out the rest of the front legs and paws.   STEP 6. You are going to finish off this drawing by adding the shape of the right hind leg, and foot. Be sure to add the toe lines, and a lion tail capped with hair. Erase all the lines and shapes you drew in step one to clean up your drawing.   STEP 7. This is what your lion looks like when you are done. This big cat is ready for some color. Shade in your lion, and when you're done, display it for all to see. Great work everyone!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
