Hi, I'm Michael Weisner. I'm an animator, illustrator and graphic designer. And today I am going to show you how to draw a lion for a crest. Let's get started. Now for this project you are going to need the following materials. What you are going to need is paper, pencil. Okay let's begin by drawing our lion on a crest. First I'm going to draw a little border for our lion to be in. Now that we have our border we can start drawing out our lion. To begin with the lion is either going to be standing or sitting. I'm going to draw a standing lion. I'm going to first start by drawing out a light sketch how I want my lion to stand. Always, standing lions they always have one rear paw or rear leg down. And they have one of their leg up. And they have the front paw legs. One right here and one right here. And they have their head right here. And they have an open mouth. And now that I have this rough set up and remember with the tail it's going to be either intricate, which is going to have more then one tail. And some really cool things for it's tail mane. Or just one tail sticking out like this. Now that I have that set up I can then add give the detail for some mane. Now that I've got that you want to remember that your lion is going to be a solid color. There's no lines that are flying out the body to be 3D. It's going to be a very flat 2D image. So all of my outside lines are going to be hardened. Now that I have that set up I am going to start darkening out the rest of the lion. And there you have it. Draw a lion for your crest. And that's how you draw a lion on a crest. I hope you enjoyed. I'll see you next time.
