STEP 1. In this first step what you will be doing is drawing out the guidelines and circle shapes to form the frame of the Japanese Kirin. Start by drawing a circle for the head and the squared shape for the jaw as shown. Now draw out the guidelines for the spin and all the legs including the tail. On the guidelines for the legs draw the shapes for the thighs and feet. After you finish this step move down to the next.   STEP 2. Here in this step you will start drawing out the shape of the Kirin's body as shown. Start by drawing out the lining behind the visible ear and work your way down the back of the beast. Now starting just under the neck draw the beginning lining for the chest and stomach. Now draw out the shapes of all four legs that are rather thick. On the back of the right leg draw in some long looking hair. Now you are ready for the next step.   STEP 3. In this step you will be drawing out the eyes and detailing the mouth and ears. You will have to start detailing the horn as well and draw out the rest of the tail. On the left leg draw the flame looking hair on the back of the front legs. On the back legs sketch in some more fiery looking hair on the leg set on the inside and sketch in a bit of detail on the rear hoof.   STEP 4. This step involves a lot of detailing for all the hair including the Kirin's mane. Take your time and sketch out all definition on the mane, beard, tail, and back and front legs. The hair should look flowing and full. Color in the eye as well. Erase all the guidelines and circle shapes when you are done with your sketch. Simple right.   STEP 5. This is what your finished Kirin should like after you are completely done. All that you have to do is get creative and color it in any color you want. That was simple as eating pie right? Well again that will do it for this tutorial on how to draw a Japanese Kirin.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
