Drawing Lion Mane With Pencil Tutorial

Drawing Lion Mane With Pencil

Drawing Lion Mane

Drawing realistic hair is more of an understanding of what you are drawing than the technique. It’s such a huge help knowing what you are drawing rather than going with only what you know. I’m sure we can picture a lion’s mane in our heads, but do you actually know what it really looks like. That extra bit of information and detail is what will make your drawing much more realistic. In this tutorial we will look at the mane and will break it down and we will use my technique to draw it. If this is your first time on this site, i recommend you try this tutorial first to make it easier on what were gonna be doing. Let’s get started. Continue reading

Pencil Drawing Tools

Drawing Materials

My goal with this website is to help you improve your pencil drawings. Im always looking for ways to add better content and write the tutorials with as much detail as possible.

I’d really appreciate it and will will help improve the quality of this website.

Drawing the Human Eye

Drawing the Human Eye

Before you draw a realistic eye you must first study what it really is. I will post a closeup picture of an eye so you can see what it looks up close. We all have them, but I’m sure that most of us haven’t really paid attention to what it really looks like up close. Continue reading
