Hey guys, Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw a lions mane. So basically I got to start off with the face here, so I'm just going to draw a couple of lines going in, just make a couple of eyes, here's the snout, and the nose. Alright, now that we've got our basic outline, I'm going to show you how to draw a mane. So basically what you're going to do, I'm going to take my orange here, and you're going to make it really flowy, so you can use just kind of sparse lines, just kind of going out almost in very swooping motions, all connecting. And you really can kind of get creative with it and make it as crazy as you want, if maybe you want him to have a giant mane, he can have a giant mane, if you want him to have a little bit of a smaller one, you can do that as well. And just kind of keep it flowy, because when you see somebody with a lot of hair or you see an animal with a lot of hair, it's just kind of going all over everywhere. So just make sure it's all connected, and it's going out a little bit from the face, because when you're looking at a lions face, or somebodies face, you can see that the hair is a little bit higher, or it has a little bit more volume than what people usually has. So you're just going to kind of keep going around like that, and leave a little bit more space at the bottom because it's a little bit longer, more like a beard when it goes down the front. And then if you want to can add a couple of lines, like maybe as some highlights or something, just like that. And keep those kind of flowy as well. And there you go guys, that's how you draw a lions mane.
