Let’s get drawing!
Let’s draw the Tiger’s head.
Step 1: First draw the outline of the head with wavy curving at the cheeks, and the ears loop on both sides of the head as shown below.
Step 2: In the ears, draw curves inside, mimicking the upper ears curve as the inner part of the ears.
Step 3: Draw two circles with black inner circles colored black as eyes, inside the head.
Step 4: Draw an oval with a triangle tip at the center as the nose, at the center, and below the eyes. Use your marker to color it black.
Step 5: Draw an open mouth with smile ends and with whiskers on each side. Draw a tongue in the mouth and two fangs on each side of the mouth. Use your maker to color the mouth black leaving out the fangs and the tongue.
Step 6: Draw a line from the sides of the nose to the sides of the head below the ears to mark the mouth area.
Step 7: Draw thick tiger lines on both sides of the head at eye level and ear level.
Let’s draw the Tiger’s body and legs.
Step 8: Draw a curve from the left side of the neck area and bend it downwards to make the back and the back leg.
Step 9: Draw the tail behind the back leg with a small tufted end.
Step 10: Draw the lower curve from the right side of the neck area to complete the tiger’s body, and a curve to mark the under part of the body, leaving a gap for one front leg and the back leg.
Step 11: Draw two back legs and two front legs with paws and claws on the lower side of the body.
Step 12: Draw thick tiger lines on the back, legs, and tail of the tiger.
Step 13: Use an orange color to paint the head, outer part of the ears, body, legs, and tail of the tiger leaving out the inner part of the ears, eyes, mouth area, the tufted part of the tail, lower part of the body, and the paws.
Step 14: Use a light orange color to paint the inner part of the ears, mouth area, the tufted part of the tail, the lower part of the body, and the paws.
Step 15: Use red color to paint the tongue.
Finally, we have a tiger drawing!
