In the Tiger drawing lesson, first, you will learn from the pictures how simple and easy it is to draw a tiger head with a pencil in stages, and at the end of the lesson, there will be a video of a realistic drawing of a tiger head.
We should have at least three simple pencils in our arsenal, hard (2-4H), soft (1-2B, there are soft HBs too), and very soft (6-8B), as well as an eraser. I warn you right away, this is not professional drawing on A1 paper, and where you need to draw each hair, no.
We draw to learn how to draw a tiger’s face, learn to see the scale, and learn how to primitively (but pretty well) apply shadows, a sheet of A4 paper and even half of A4 is enough.
The lesson is not difficult, everything is clear, the difficulty may arise at the very end, but this is not scary, because. you’ve already drawn the tiger’s head, and “shadow ownership” will come later.
Step 1. Now we take the hardest pencil, we will need soft ones only at the last stage, we apply all the lines without pressing, lightly. First, draw a circle, it is divided by two parallel lines in the middle of the circle.
We divide each half of the horizontal line into three identical segments. About the same way, divide the bottom of the vertical line and go lower, as, in the figure, there will be a chin.
Step 2. Draw the eyes of the tiger. First, draw two circles (pupils), and around them outline the eyes. Erase the unnecessary part of the eye from above. Then we draw the nose itself and two parallel lines from it.
Step 3. We draw the ears of the tiger and the line of the back of the head, click on the drawing to enlarge. Then we draw the muzzle of the tiger, the extreme point of the muzzle should not go beyond the levels of the eyes, shown by the dotted line. Each half should be just below our main circle. Then we draw a chin.
Step 4. Still drawing with a hard pencil. We color around the eyes. I left a contour on one eye so that you could see where and how to draw lines, the other eye was completely painted over. We finish drawing the lines in the ears, on the muzzle we draw three stripes (this is where the mustache will grow from).
Step 5. Draw the color of the tiger. If this picture is very colorful, then click on the next one, it is more pleasing to the eye. For a long time and monotonously we draw each spot on the muzzles of the tiger, do not make the lines too thick.
I deliberately narrowed them a little, because then we will go over them with a pencil. Under the nose we make dark spots, at the bottom of the nose we make a small partition and above the lips, we also make a partition. Then we draw a mustache on a tiger.
Step 6. Erase the circle, dashes, two intersecting lines. Now we take the softest pencil and make dashes on the lines of the mustache. Look at the next image, what will be the hatching, we will use the upper one for hatching the stripes of the tiger, the lower one for the edges of the fur of the chin, the head itself, and the ears. You can always use the lower one, but you can be tormented.
Then we take a medium soft pencil (HB -2B) and apply a shadow in the direction of the coat on the nose, below the eyes, on the bridge of the nose, and the back of the head of the tiger. We paint over the nose, paint over a little where the mustache grows, and draw a shadow where the mouth is. Now we take the softest pencil and darken a little on the side of our nose and where the eyes begin. We look, maybe somewhere we need to darken a little – we darken, at the discretion (for example, where is the nose, where is the muzzle, in the ears, etc.).
