THAT'S AMAZING! :D I love the expression in the lion! <333 What techniques do you use? And any tips for drawing (like shading,neatness,etc.)?

Thank you very much!
-To make the fur/hair I use a "stylus" to indent lines into the paper. When you draw over that, the lines will stay white and look like individual hairs. The stylus is just a dulled needle put in the tip of a mechanical pencil, or an pen with no ink.
-I also used a grid for a quick sketch of the general shape
-I use graphite pencil for most of it, but to get the deep blacks I use charcoal. (Eyes, mouth, nose)

As far as tips go I would say:
-Pay attention to how the light falls on the subject and how it contours the shapes to create depth. Really study the subjects shape and the light before you draw it.
-Sketch the details with a basic outline with simplified shapes first then go into more detail.
-Take your time! If you want a neat drawing that looks more professional, go slower.
-To shade, start out lighter and then go over it darker when you are pleased with how it looks.
-Pay attention to proportions and placement of details (how large or small something is compared to another)
-If it looks wrong, it probably is. Figure out how to fix it.
-Find out what works for you!

Hopefully that helped, I've only done a few drawings and I've never really taken any classes or anything since elementary school so I'm not totally sure how successful I am at explaining things
