Step by Step Tiger Drawing Instructions
We’ll start by drawing a simple tiger face. Make the head shape.
First details to add are a pair of ears and a round shape for the snout.
Fill in the tiger head drawing with all the details – a pair of eyes and eyebrows, nose, mouth and teeth. Also draw another set of round lines inside the ears.
This next step will have you complete the tiger head drawing – draw the signature stripes.
This step might look a little bit tricky, but it will make drawing a tiger’s body easier. Start by drawing one leg (the line on the left). Also, draw a curved line (on the right) to make the tiger’s body.
Now draw a line from the head to the bottom part of the left (the line on the left) to make the belly. Also draw a hind leg.
Almost there! Draw another leg. Also draw the tail.
Add details on the legs and, if there was any space between the hind and front legs, draw a line between them to complete the belly.
Last, the most important step: draw stripes on your tiger drawing.
All done! You have learned how to draw a tiger. Isn’t he or she cute? All there is left to do is to color in your cartoon tiger.
