How to Draw a Realistic Snow Leopard - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Start by drawing the head. Draw a hollow circle and then draw a small semi-circle at the bottom right for the snout. Draw a small curved "W" at the bottom of the snout for the mouth.

Step 2: Draw two tiny triangles on either side of the top of the head for ears.

Step 3: Now draw two almond shaped hollow eyes above the snout, slightly towards the right.

Step 4: Draw a small semi-circle in the middle of the snout for the nose and draw several small straight lines fanning out from either sides of the snout for whiskers.

Step 5: Next we draw the body. Start by drawing an irregularly curved line starting from above the head and going down at the left. Now draw a fuzzy semi-circular line below the head for the neck. Draw another fuzzy semi-circle below the neck for the belly.

Step 6: To draw the front legs, draw a loop vertically down below the belly with a tiny oval at the end. Draw a curved line in the middle of the oval for the feet. Now draw a curved loop on the left of the other leg and draw three tiny groves at the end of this leg for the foot. Make sure the left front leg is longer than the right.

Step 7: Now we draw the hind legs. First draw a horizontally curved line to the left of the front legs to finish the belly. Now start drawing the left hind leg by drawing a vertical fuzzy line down from the back of the body at the end curve it an angle of 45 and make three small grooves for toes and then bring it back up to connect to the belly. Draw a line between the left hind leg and the left front leg to show the right hind leg behind.

Step 8: Next, we draw the tail. Make a curved loop at the back of the body curving towards the left.

Step 9: Draw several fuzzy patches of patterns all over the body. Largest on the tail, smaller on the body and legs and smallest on the face.
