Step 6: Add the guide for the second half of the body by first making a small mark on the far right side. Now connect the small mark to the front part of the lion's body using a couple of long, curved lines to create a big arc. This guide should be similar to a giant letter U on its side. You can rotate your paper so that it's easier to draw.
Step 7: Under the big circle, draw a thin, long arc as a guide for the first arc. The arc should be at the bottom of the circle and stretch to left. Above this guide, draw a similar line as a guide for the lion's other front leg.
Step 8: Inside the body, near the right, draw a curved line as the guide for the top part of the hind leg. At the bottom, draw a long, horizontal line as a guide for the lower part of the lion's hind leg.
That's it for the guides! From this point on, press harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing.
Step 9: Lightly sketch the lion's eyes inside the head as two small circles. Use the initial lines as guides for position and size. When you get the shapes right, darken the lines. Add a couple of lines above the eyes to create the outside shape. Add a curved line under each circle to finish the outer eye shapes. Use a few short strokes on the side to represent fur. Inside each eye, near the top, draw a tiny dot for the lion's pupils.
