The written step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Draw a circle as a guide for the front part of Simba's body. First draw four small marks to indicate the height and width. Now connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're having a hard time drawing the circle, simply trace the outer rim of a coin, a bottle cap or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Draw another circle the same way on the left side as a guide for the back portion of the lion's body. This circle should be smaller and placed lower than the first circle. Don't place the circles too far apart, other wise Simba will be too long.
Step 3: Draw another circle on the top, right side as a guide for Simba's head. This circle should be a tiny bit smaller than the leftmost circle. The edge of this circle and the edge of the first circle should touch.
Step 4: Draw a curved horizontal line across the head. This construction line will help you place Simba's facial features later. Add a curved vertical line on the top right side of the head for another construction line.
Step 5: Draw a small circle on the lower right side of the head as a guide for Simba's muzzle. Pay attention to the size and position of this circle in relation to the head. The top edge of this circle should touch the construction line, and the bottom edge should be outside of the head.
