How To Draw Nala from Lion King

You are going to learn how to draw Nala from Lion King. Nala as you know is Simba's spouse, so if you already practiced how to draw Simba then Nala also should be on the "to do" list.

Nala is obviously a much easier and simpler character than Simba when it comes to drawing.

The basic drawing principle and drawing technique is exactly the same as when you draw other Disney Characters or Cartoons.



Let's Learn How To Draw Nala

Just follow this tutorial step by step and you'll find yourself that you've actually learned how to draw Nala in almost no time.

Observe for a while this finished drawing of Nala and just try to imagine how would you begin sketching her. There is no correct or wrong answer, so do not put pressure on yourself. Take it easy, it's only a drawing training.

Sketch the head and the belly. This is an initial, very approximate shape of the two main body parts; the head and the belly.

Sketch the upper part of all four legs. Add another smaller circle on the head circle. This will be the nose and the mouth part.

Sketch the lower part of all four legs.

Sketch the shape of lower legs parts as if they are "brushes". This shape will be very easy for you to imitate and you cannot make mistake here.

You are literally one step before you complete the rough sketch of the entire body.

At this stage, the shape of Nala is gradually emerging and you've almost learned how to draw Nala.

Add the ears and sketch the pow on all four feet.

Sketch the details on Nala's face; the nose and mouth.

You can begin erasing the initial pencil guide lines as you see on this picture.



Sketch out further the details on Nala's head:

  • eyes
  • nose
  • inner line on ears.

Draw a smooth and curvy neck line and flatten a bit the top of Nala's head.

Add the tail. Make sure the length of the tail is well balanced to the body size.

Outline the elbow parts on the front legs and sketch a small bump - shoulder right behind Napa's neck.

Erase all unnecessary pencil guide lines.

A pen shaped eraser will come very handy here.

Use a well sharpened color pencil and draw a clean and distinct contour line around Napa's body.

Then erase the rest of pencil dust so that you will have a crisp clean contour drawing, a perfect base for coloring page.

Color the whole Nala's body by yellow color pencil, flat, no shading.

On the yellow color layer, keep adding another layer of brown color as you see on the picture.

This way you can gradually add more brown color layers until you reach the right brown color tone.

Enlarge the picture and observe well how the shading is made by blending brown color tones.

Finally, by well sharpened black color pencil draw a clean contour line to give an overall accent to your drawing.
