We have already drawn a cheetah before. That was the first part of our lesson. And now we will pay more attention to drawing the head of the cheetah.
What can we say about its anatomy? Cheetahs have a quite small head, their eyes are set quite high and they have very small rounded ears. This makes him more dynamic and streamlined, in a word, a good runner.
How to draw cheetah’s head step by step
Step 1. We draw a big circle in the middle of the paper. On its top we add two small circles – the ears.
Step 2. On the opposite side we mark the open jaws.
Step 3. Now we draw the nose and a closed eye. When he yawns his eye gets closed automatically and his nose looks wrinkled. We add sharp teeth and a tongue in his mouth.
Step 4. Now let’s draw the fur with sharp short lines over his head, ears and neck.
Step 5. We add whiskers. Don’t forget about little black stripes on the side of the muzzle. Then make his fur thick, add shades on his ears and head. Now let’s see the result!
