Drawing mascots for sports teams can be a fun way to add spirit and recognition to a school. Mascots should portray the overall values and energy of the school while maintaining a timeless image that can be enjoyed for years to come. Tiger mascots can be a great choice when attempting to portray a strong and powerful presence on the field and throughout the school. Drawing mascots and tigers to bring school spirit and energy to sports teams can be done by following a few basic steps.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Heavy-grade drawing paper
  • Pencils

  1. 1

    Ask members of the school's sports teams and student council for their input before drawing the mascot. The mascot represents the entire student body and should be agreed upon by members of the school.

  2. 2

    Consider the school's values, goals and spirit. Select a mascot that embodies these things and is eye-catching and unique. The goal is to create a mascot that is recognisable and synonymous with the school.

  3. 3

    Prepare a flat surface for drawing that has ample light. Set out a heavy-grade drawing paper, some pencils and coloured felt-tipped markers.

  4. 4

    Draw the outline of the mascot using basic shapes like circles, ovals, triangles and squares. If a tiger is the chosen mascot, sketch out a triangle shape for the head, a long oval shape for the body and four ovals for the legs. Add smaller shapes like triangles for the ears. Consider the position of the mascot or tiger. Often animal mascots take on human qualities and can be depicted standing on hind legs as opposed to all fours. A real tiger versus a cartoon tiger can make the difference between a fierce mascot or a funny one.

  5. 5

    Draw the face on the mascot using an HB pencil. Sketch lightly to ensure mistakes are easy to erase. Facial expressions are an important factor in developing the general mood and personality of the mascot. If creating a tiger, consider whether the expression will be fearsome or tame. Tigers eyes should be drawn slanted inward and wider at the outer edge for an angry look, but more rounded for a fun and happy look. Draw the nose in a broad, triangular shape. For a fierce look, the tiger can be drawn bearing it's teeth or for a docile appearance, a small smile can be added.

  6. 6

    Draw clothes on the mascot. Place the school logo on the mascot's shirt or draw a large circle with the schools name written on it behind the mascot or tiger. If drawing a realistic tiger without clothes, sketch stripes in a tiger pattern on its fur. Find a picture of a tiger and copy the striped pattern onto the tiger mascot for a realistic look.

  7. 7

    Apply colour to the mascot or tiger using coloured, felt-tipped pens for a bright eye-catching look.
