How to Draw Simba from The Lion King
Okay so let's see, so far I have submitted tutorials on three characters from The Lion King movie. That means I already showed you how to draw Scar, Mufasa and Nala. I figured that I would submit another tutorial on a Lion King character that would make the character collection semi complete. Today you will be learning how to draw Simba the one animated character that makes the movie worth watching. Simba is the son of Mufasa and he is air to the throne to one day rule over the Pride Lands. There is just one problem though, Scar wants that position more than any of the lions know, including his brother Mufasa. Simba loves his father very much and he wants to one day be brave and bold like his old man. Knowing that this pint size lion will one day rule, Scar concocts a master plan to rid the cub forever and take Mufasa out of the picture. Simba is blamed for the death of his dad when he tries to rescue him from a stampede of running wildebeast that the hyenas chased down the gorge. The little cub runs away and finds himself in the middle of no where. As he lays there unconscious, a warthog and a meerkat find the dehydrated cub and bring him to a jungle oasis. There he grows into an adult resembling his father Mufasa. He returns to the pride lands after Nala finds him hidden away from the world and tells him how bad it is at the Pride Lands. Simba eventually takes over the land and becomes king. The character of Simba was sweet, innocent and funny. The writers of the movie really did do a good job. He was an easy character to draw out because he is round and bulky with little detail. This tutorial will show you how easy it is to learn how to draw Simba from the Lion King step by step. Maybe next week I will do another tutorial on either Pumbaa or Timon. Well have fun and remember, keep drawing no matter how hard it may seem. Never give up, never except mediocre work, and practice, practice, practice, because practice truly does make perfect.....
First start this step by drawing a round circle for Simba's head and then add the facial guidelines. Next make a small dash for the neck line and then attach the torso shape and then the Round hind shape. From the butt shape draw a curled line fro the tail with a leaf like shape for the hair tipped tail. Next the guidelines for the limbs and feet are the last thing to add.
Using the facial guidelines you drew in step one, begin adding the outline of his eyes as well as the mouth and jaw. Next make the lining for the ears and begin thickening his body by drawing shaping lines for the front legs and tail. You will also need to add the lining for the hind leg and foot before you proceed on.
In this step Simba starts to take form now. You will detail the inside of the ear to make it look more full and shapely. Then you will draw out the eye sockets and nose. Start detailing the shape of the face with jagged strokes to make a fur appeal and then fluff up the chest and finish the lining for the front legs and add the toe lines. The back legs are the last thing to be drawn out as well as the toe lines.
Okay you are almost done with your drawing of Simba. ALl you will need to do here is add his eyeballs and detail his face a bit. Then sketch in his teeth as well as fluff up the back of his neck and tail tip. Thicken his tail and finish off the legs and paws as shown. After you are done with that you can start erasing the guidelines you no longer need.
What you will do here is shade in the area above his eyes and color in his pupils and draw a circle around the pupil to form a full eye. Then draw a crooked separation line for the stomach and top part of the lions body. Now that you are done you can erase the rest of the guidelines and shapes that you drew back in step one.
Here you are. This is what your drawing of Simba should come out looking like. Now you can color him in and call it a work of art. That is it you just finished this tutorial on how to draw Simba from the Lion King. I will be back with more drawing tutorials for you all. Till then keep smiling and keep drawing.
