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 big circle 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. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a bowl or a lid. The bigger this circle is, the bigger the tiger's head will be. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: Draw a long, curved, horizontal line across the circle as a guide to help you place the tiger's facial features later. Draw this line slightly higher than the middle. Add a curved, vertical line on top for another guide.
Step 3: Directly on top of the horizontal line, draw two small circles as guides for the eyes. Pay attention to the distance from the vertical line. The eyes should be very small compared to the tiger's head.
Step 4: Draw another circle below the horizontal line as a guide for the tiger's muzzle. Use the four-marks method again to draw the circle. Make the width a bit narrower than the height. Pay attention to the space between the guides above and below this circle.
Step 5: Inside the muzzle, draw a small triangle as a guide for the nose. Place the triangle higher up than the middle of the muzzle. Pay attention to its size in relation to the tiger's muzzle.
