Last summer I had the opportunity to play with a couple lion cubs while visiting Africa. The cubs wanted to lick my face and chew on my hair! What an experience! Today, we are going to start a colored pencil project drawing a lion cub. In this project we will first draw the simple shapes and then shade in the cub so that it looks real, soft and with a lot of texture. After this lesson you will have a better understanding of shading and blending colors together. Hopefully after this project you will be ready to take out your colored pencils again and draw your own favorite pet.
