In this lesson, I want to tell you and show you in detail how to draw a hyena. Start this step by step lesson and get useful skills that will come in handy for drawing other animals.
Hyena is a predatory mammal that lives in hot countries. The hyena has a large head with a pointed muzzle. The hind legs are slightly shorter than the front legs, so the back is slightly sloping. On the back of the hyena, there is coarse hair that forms a tousled mane.
Try to depict all these features in your drawing. Be careful at every step to get a great result. You can see that in the drawing the hyena looks a little tense and scared. Try to correctly depict the emotions of this wild animal.
