Step 11: High above the eyes, make a small mark for the top of the tiger's head. When you get the height right, make the mark longer and curvier. Now draw the sides of the head as a series of long curved lines. Make a small mark first to help you draw the sides an equal distance from the middle. Add a few spike- like lines along the way for the fur. Curve the side in toward the chin/jaw. Leave gaps at the top for the ears. Try to make the sides symmetrical.
Step 12: Draw a small arc on each gap on the head for the tiger's ears. Don't make the ears too big. They should also be round, not pointy. Make the outline for the ears thick and dark. Inside the ears, draw a series of lines for structure and fur.
Step 13: Add the stripes next to the tiger's eyes using curved lines. This first set of stripes should be small and moon-like in shape. Add another set of stripes farther out using longer curved lines. The bottom tip s of these lines should curve in toward the muzzle. Remember to make these stripes as symmetrical as you can. Now draw the outermost stripes using really long curved lines. These lines should be almost as long as the whole side of the face. As you draw the stripes, sketch lightly at first to get the shapes right, then darken the lines. Shade in each stripe to make them stand out. Don't shade in too dark if you're going to ink your tiger drawing later.
Step 14: Now add the stripes on the forehead the same way. Above the eyebrows, draw two thick shapes similar to the eyebrows for the first set of stripes. Above that, draw a shape similar to a wide letter V for the next stripe. The next line up will be similar in shape as the previous line but a lot longer. The stripe at the very top should be similar in shape as the one below it but smaller. Now shade in the tiger's stripes to make them stand out more.
Step 15: Using a pen or marker, carefully go over the lines to make your tiger drawing permanent. After inking, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser.
Final Step: Color your tiger drawing using color pencils, markers or even crayons! Use orange but leave the ears, muzzle and bottom of the head and eyes blank. Outline these areas first to make it easier to color. Use peach and pink for the nose and tongue, and black for the inside of the mouth. Color the tiger's eyes yellow.
