Lion Face Drawing

Sometimes, when drawing animals, it’s nice to focus on just one part of them. Especially when you want your drawing to really capture someone’s attention.

This tutorial focuses on the lion face and shares an easy way to draw some intense looking eyes. Keeping the brow lines straight and the pupils tucked up under will always give them a serious look, whether you are drawing an animal or even a human. Anytime the tops of the pupils are flattened under straight brows, the eyes will tend to have an angry look.
