World Wildlife Day is the most crucial international annual occasion committed to wildlife. On the 3rd of March in 1973, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) was born.
For the World Wildlife Day we chose the King of the Jungle; the Lion as a subject. 2021 World Wildlife Day will be celebrated under the theme "Forests and Livelihoods: sustaining people and planet" as a way to highlight the central role of forests, forest types, and ecosystems services in sustaining the incomes of hundreds of countless individuals worldwide, and especially of Local and native communities with historical ties to forested and forest-adjacent locations.
In this tutorial we used the following supplies:
Step 1. We begin construction by drawing a middle line and a circle (the future lion's head). (Pencil B)
Step 2. Draw the face inside the circle and around the circle; the limits of the mane. (Pencil B)
Step 3. Draw the contour of the mane over the outlined lines, and draw the paws below. (Pencil B)
Step 4. Draw fingers on the paws and add a tail. Draw the shape of the future leaves at the back. (Pencil B)
Step 5. On top of the outlined lines, draw the outline of the leaves and also add others in shape at the back. (Pencil B)
Step 6. Remove all unnecessary construction lines and use the eraser to make the outline lighter. (Eraser)
Step 7. Draw out the existing colored outline with colored pencils. For the lion we use brown and ocher, and for the leaves we use green, the shadow is dark brown. (Colored pencils brown, dark brown, green, ocher)
Step 8. We start painting with the leaves and make its general tone using green. (Colored pencil green)
Step 9. Next, we work on the leaves. For those that are above and below, we use light green and yellow in the light areas, and green and dark green in the dark areas. For the rest, you only need green and dark green. (Colored pencils green, dark green, light green, yellow)
Step 10. Move on to the lion and enhance its general tone. We use brown and ocher for the mane, and ocher for the paws. (Colored pencils brown, ocher)
Step 11. Working on the lion. To convey the texture of the coat, we try to make different strokes. For the light areas we will use orange, yellow and ocher, and for the dark areas we will use brown and dark brown. At the bottom, make a shadow with a gradient using a dark brown color. (Colored pencils orange, yellow, ocher, brown, dark brown)
