How to draw these characters?

Postby Ravvij » June 28th, 2014, 6:04 pm

Okay, so, I've been looking around the net for a good tutorial on how to draw lions like they do in The Lion King. So far I've found a few good ones, but nothing solid and all-encompassing. Anyone know where I could find something like that?
I mean I could figure it out on my own, but I'd like a place to start.

Yeah there aren't a lot out there. :/

But good luck! I still can't draw the characters exactly on model.

You'll also need to have a basic understanding of form drawing and perspective. Just following a "How To" tutorial and getting down the basic proportions isn't enough for a perfect rendering. There's a deeper thought process involved and you need to be able to think more three dimensionally as you draw. These are the fundamentals and how Disney's artists go about their work. They build up their models using basic forms(like the cube, spheres, etc.) while keeping in mind the rules of perspective.

Recommended books on the subject are:
Cartoon Animation by Preston Blair
The Vilppu Drawing Manual by Glenn Vilppu
Perspective Made Easy by Ernest Norling
All books by Andrew Loomis(starting with Fun With a Pencil)
The Natural Way to Draw

There is this really cool place, too! It's got all of the character sheets and concept art, so it's good if you want to look at the character's defining features. It just doesn't have much TLK2. :(

But it's seriously cool. 10/10 would recommend.

From my own 2D digital art experiences (been doing it for 3 years now), it's best to break down a character's look or design into shapes as MUCH as possible to simplify the drawing process. Not just that, but definitely use guide lines as well to get the proportions of his/her head, face and the rest of their body right.

There are plenty of (free) resources online you can use to learn how to start drawing and including how to use guide lines, etc. Even for 2D characters. But if it's a storybook long resource or has too much text, it's not worth looking into or using. And unless you've been drawing consistently for years or went to school and got an art degree (or already mastered freehand drawing), the character is NOT going to look on-model good when you draw him/her at first. But you just use references for them, including the pose and expression you want to draw or work on along the way (but don't become a slave to refs by relying on them too much), and continue refining your drawing of the character until you've reached a point of personal or on-model satisfaction. : )

And, references do Not specifically need to be model sheets. On the contrary, it's much more important that you use references (even if not the same material of the character you're drawing or working on) that FIT the pose, expression and the way you want the character to look overall. This is even how it's usually done when people commission professional artists for unique fan art.
