This tutorial will teach you how to draw a tiger in pencil, step by step.
There are several varieties of tiger but we will choose a Siberian Tiger.
The first thing we need to do is to draw a perfect circle for the head and add an oval for the neck of a tiger. Then attach a long oval for the body of the tiger to a larger circle.
Now add two short lines for the animal's eyes and sketch the legs.
Draw two small triangles for the ears in the corners of the head.
Now we move further down and map out a small hatch for the tiger's cheeks. Draw a chin in the lower part of the muzzle. Add some detail to the nose.
Focus on the face of the tiger. A simple way to draw a tiger with an open mouth is to draw a big "U" as well as "W" where the mouth should be. After the top part of the drawing is done, move on to the second stage.
Moving down, outline the front legs of the tiger.
Draw the tiger's eyes in detail and finish drawing the front paws.
Then start drawing sketching the hind legs.
Finish sketching the hind legs. Add a few necessary details specific to the tiger. Sketch out the animal's ankles and add the claws to its feet.
Draw a tail and then erase all unnecessary lines that remain from earlier.
At this point, concentrate on a few important points in our drawing of a tiger. Add a mustache and preying eyes. Finish drawing the thighs and fur.
Tigers are basically large and dangerous cats, so make sure your proportions correspond to that. Draw the stripes all over the body of your tiger like in the figure.
