Simple Tiger Drawing

Now let’s move on to the drawing tutorial on how to draw a tiger step by step.

Time needed: 15 minutes.

How to Draw a Tiger for Kids

  1. First, draw the head of the tiger.

    Draw a small oval, pressed slightly at the top. Imagine putting a round balloon on the floor and pushing it down lightly with your hand. This is approximately the shape you should get.

  2. Next, draw the body of the tiger.

    On the lower right side of the head, draw an oval. The body of the tiger should be somewhat wider than the muzzle, but not too long.

  3. Then, let’s draw the ears and tail.

    Draw ears on top of the head – small and rounded. The ears must be positioned at the same distance from the edge of the oval. But don’t place them on the sides!
    Now let’s draw a tail for our animal. With a smooth, neat enveloping line, we will depict a snake that has risen to look around.

  4. Now you need to draw a tiger’s face.

    Draw the eyes in small even circles with bold small dots in the center. Then we will depict the nose – draw a small triangle, the sides of which protrude slightly. Draw a mouth under the nose, make it in the form of two semicircular lines adjoining each other.

  5. We draw paws.

    To run in the jungle, a tiger cub needs legs. Draw the legs of the tiger as in our picture – parallel lines connected in a semicircle.

  6. Drawing the final touches.

    So, we have almost finished drawing our animal. But the tiger cub lacks stripes! Let’s depict them first on the face – small, slightly elongated triangles on the cheeks, and one very small one on the forehead. Next, we will depict three stripes on the back with the same elongated triangles, the bases lying on the back of the animal and tending to the bottom. In the same way we make stripes on the tail.

  7. Color in the drawing of the tiger.

    We will paint the animal itself in dark orange color. The eyes will be white and the pupils will be black. We paint the nose in a dark red color – we will adhere to the color tone. And the stripes will be brown.
    You can use the same colors as ours or apply other paints.

If you followed the instructions, then you have got an easy drawing of a tiger. You are great! We hope you enjoyed our lesson: How to draw a tiger for beginners, as we are trying for you and your positive emotions.
