Looking at the shape of our tiger, we can see that this carnivore has very powerful back legs. The front legs are not as strong as the back ones but they are without a doubt more agile. The shape of the body is rather irregular. The head is represented by an almost perfect circle. The tail is not very thick nor very long.

Step 3

How about drawing some cute tigers? Let's start by sketching the head and the body of this feared predator. Then, draw four semicircles for the paws and two circles for the knees.

Sketch the outline of your tiger and erase the primitive shapes. Add the eyes, the ears and other details like the black stripes. Using colors will definitely help to make your tiger look like one!
