In this lesson, I want to show you how to draw an easy animal. The lesson is designed for beginners, so the instructions are very simple.
Now I will show you how to draw an easy animal. As an example, I decided to choose a lion. This is a formidable predator that is able to cope with any opponent.
The lion is large and inspires fear, but in our lesson the lion looks quite harmless and even very cute. Here, the lion is presented in a cartoon style. The lion has a round head, a lush mane, short legs and a tail with a tassel.
This lesson is sure to appeal to children and novice artists, as it uses simple elements that can be easily repeated. The instruction includes nine steps, where each step is one simple action.
