Step 16: Draw the hind leg on the right by continuing the curved line for the body. Add the lion's foot and toes the same way as the front legs.
Step 17: Draw a small curved line to the right of the first front leg for the visible portion of the second hind leg. To the right of the body, draw the first part of the cartoon lion's tail using a couple of short U-shaped lines.
Step 18: Draw a series of short strokes at the end for the brush- like tip of the lion's tail.
Step 19: Using a pen or marker, carefully go over the lines to make your cartoon lion drawing permanent. After inking, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser.
Final Step: Color your cartoon lion drawing using color pencils, markers or even crayons! Use brown for the mane. Use yellow-orange for the rest of the body except the eyes, muzzle, paws and underside. Now use yellow for everything else except the nose and irises. To get a gradient effect on the lion's eyes, color the top part dark brown and the bottom part light brown.
