Step 11: Add the cartoon lion's mane by first lightly sketching an arc around the whole head. Close off the shape of the mane by adding a V-shaped line at the bottom. Now draw a series of short strokes along the path of the lightly sketched line. The purpose of the light sketch is to give you a visual of where the mane will go. You can skip it if you want. Use short, jagged strokes to darken the outer edge of the mane and make it furry. You can also draw the mane farther away from the face to make it fluffier. Make the strokes that are closer to the bottom of the mane longer and not as jagged.
Step 12: Below the mane, draw a long curved vertical line for the first part of the lion's front leg. Add another long vertical line on the left for the other edge of the leg. Angle it in the middle a little. Draw three short, curved lines at the end of the leg for the toes.
Step 13: Draw the other front leg the same way. First two vertical lines for the top part. Then add the curved lines at the bottom for the lion's toes. The leg is turned, so only draw two toes.
Step 14: To the left of the mane, draw a long line that curves downward for the back of the body. Add a short horizontal line to the left of the front leg for the underside of the lion's body.
Step 15: Add the hind leg on the left by first drawing a line that slopes at the top and is vertical at the bottom. Now add the foot as a short, curved line at the bottom. Add the right edge of this leg by drawing another sloping line that connects to the body. Draw the lion's toes at the tip of the foot as two curved lines.
