The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle near the right side of the paper as a guide for the tiger's head. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a bottle cap or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Inside the head, draw two lines, one vertical and one horizontal, to help you place the tiger's facial features later. The horizontal line should curve a bit to contour to the shape of the circle.
Step 3: Draw a small circle on the bottom half of the head as a guide for the tiger's muzzle. Draw this circle between the horizontal construction line and the bottom edge of the head.
Step 4: On top of the head, draw two small arcs as guides for the tiger's ears.
Step 5: Below the head, draw a big circle as a guide for the front part of the body. Like with the head, make some marks to indicate the circle's height and width, and then connect the marks using curved lines. Don't overlap the shape of the head. This circle should be behind the head. Pay attention to the size of this circle in relation to the tiger's head. It should be a little to the left of the head.
