Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Lion" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the lion's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides.
Step 2: Draw an egg shape above the right circle as a guide for the lion's head.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the head. These will help you place the lion's facial features.
Step 4: Draw a small arc near the top of the head for the lion's ear.
Step 5: Draw three lines under the lion's body as guides for the legs.
