When we think of lions, the assumption tends to be that they are rich and golden in color, but this is not always the case. For something a little different and unique, we are going to learn how to draw our very own white lion – are you ready to get started?
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by using a black pen and a ruler to draw a large rectangle on your page.
Now, draw a short, diagonal line on the right side of the box. At the end of this, bring the line across and down, add a “bump”, and then bring the bottom line across to the left.
Add a right angle below this, and then flick the end of this down towards the bottom of the page.
Add a curve heading downwards…
And then bring across two curved, parallel lines, heading towards the top of the page, for arms. Join these with a curve at the end, and add two marks for paws.
Add another arm just below this first one, this time angled down towards the bottom of the page.
Next, bring a curved line down below this, heading to the bottom left-hand corner of the page, and add another curved line to the end of this one.
Bring the line across, down, and then left and back up for a back foot, and then extend the line up for the back leg.
Return to the top of your drawing, and bring a slightly jagged line across, creating sharp points for the mane of your lion.
Continue the line of the mane down and across…
And then connect this to the line of the back, bringing it down towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page.
Use the slight gap in the back to bring up two curved, parallel lines for a tail, joining these at the end with a “tuft”.
Now, add a small arrow shape to the front of the face…
And follow this with a small, curved “E” shape – make the bottom larger than the top. Next, add a curved line in front of this.
Bring down another leg to the front, and end this with a foot, just as before.
Grab a black pen, and shade the background, leaving your lion standing out bright white, proud, and fierce.
Now, that is how you capture the drama and power of an amazing white lion – there is a good reason that these creatures are considered to be the king of the jungle!
