In this super simple step-by-step drawing tutorial, I will show you how to draw a cartoon tiger for kids and beginners.
This tutorial on how to draw a cartoon tiger will be really simple. The lesson consists of nine very simple stages, and each stage contains very few simple lines and details.
As you can see, this cartoon tiger is made in chibi style. By making the head slightly smaller and the body slightly larger, you can give your tiger drawing more realistic proportions.
By the way, if you color your drawing of a tiger not in orange and black, but in black and white, then you will get a white Bengal tiger.
