As was repeatedly mentioned in previous drawing classes The myths and legends of ancient Greece are extremely intriguing and diverse. A lot of the characters in the myths are not well-known and some are well-known to people all over the world. Most likely, the Nemean Lion is among the most well-known figures from the mythology of old Greece. Let’s go to this lesson to learn what it takes to create the Nemean Lion.
The first step is to sketch an oval head and a spine that extends through the tail. Next, sketch out a chest and pelvis. Then, at the end of the step, draw the legs. Remember that at the beginning of each step, we draw very thin lines, that is, we do not try to forcefully press onto the pencil.
On the head, sketch out the muzzle, the small eye, and the ears of our magnificent animal. Next, sketch out both the body and neck of our animal, which narrows at the waist. Then, sketch out the tail and paws. It is important to note it is important that the front paws must be smaller than the rear paws.
We will continue to use light lines. We need to draw the basic elements. In the beginning, we sketch out a huge beautiful mane, and then the form of its nose. After the step, create a tuft of hair on the top of the tail and then move on to the step.
With the aid of straight and clean lines, draw the contours of a stunning face. Sketch out wrinkles and lines of muscle on the face, as in our steps. Also, do not forget to eliminate any unnecessary guidance off the head.
Let’s now look at the specifics in the body part of the lion that will help you distinguish the male from the female which is the mane. With long lines, sketch the hairline onto the mane. Make sure that the mane looks large and curly.
Let’s move on to the body of our Nemean Lion. With the aid of clean and smooth lines, draw out big and rounded paws as well as the front portion of the back. The paws of the lion should be rounded just like the paws of every cat.
We’ll now look at the rear part of the body Nemean Lion. Following the lines drawn in the previous step, we are now drawing the body. The next step is to draw the hind leg, which, as previously mentioned will be noticeable bigger over the front legs. At the same time create a large tail and eliminate any unnecessary rules.
Thus, the Nemean Lion drawing is close to being finished and we’re only left to draw shadows. Through hatching in varying intensities as well as adding shadows on the body and body part of the lion. Naturally, shadows should fall in the darkest areas on the body and back of our animal.
