Draw A Hyena
Hyena – the African savannah is home to many amazing creatures. From the mighty lion to the lovable bush baby, the variety of wildlife you can enjoy there is limitless.
Also, check our fishing coloring pages.
Often the big cats get all the attention, but some canine creatures are just as awesome. Hyenas are an example of this, and these scavenging animals are also known for their distinctive and sinister cackle.
They look cool, too, and learning how to draw a hyena is a great way to create awesome artwork with them. If you love this spotted dog, this is a great guide!
How to Draw A Hyena?
In this first step of our tutorial on how to draw a hyena, we will start with the hyena’s head and neck.
Hyenas often have their heads low to the ground and their necks arched down, and that’s how we’re going to draw this hyena.
The head will be quite thin and pointed, and we will also draw the eyes so that they have a sharp point at the top to give the hyena a more intense expression.
The base of the neck will have some jagged lines, making it a little hairier. For the top of the head, we’ll draw large, rounded ears with curved line details inside.
Next, we’ll finish this step by drawing a larger pointed line at the top of the neck. By having even more pointed parts, this line looks hairier than the base of the neck.

The head and neck are done for now, so in this step, we’ll add a back and a leg for your hyena drawing.
The back is straight, then extends into a curve, and is drawn with similar jagged lines to make it nice and hairy.
Next, let’s add a few small strands of curved lines to the front of the hyena’s body.
The fur look is also created here. Finally, we’ll draw a paw for the hyena for this step.
This leg goes to the front of the hyena’s underside and is slightly bent to make it appear as if she is walking.
In this third step of our tutorial on drawing a hyena, we will add the second leg. This leg also goes in front of the hyena next to the first one you drew.
The top of this second leg will have some spiky lines there, and this, in turn, will serve to give it a furrier base.
The other half of the leg will look very similar to the first one you drew, with some relatively smooth lines making up the thin half of the leg.
This leg will be straighter than the first one, which will also help it look like it’s walking.
Now let’s add another leg and fur details to your hyena design. This leg goes into the hyena’s back and has a more rounded base than the other legs.
The thinner part of the bottom half of the leg is more curved and angular than the front legs.
Once this leg is drawn, you can draw more pointed lines to create a furry belly between the front and back pairs of legs.
The last thing we’ll do in this part adds more of those little curved lines on the back of the hyena’s body and leg.
This fifth step of our guide on drawing a hyena involves refining the final details and elements to be ready for the final step.
The main thing that we will draw in this step is the rest of the last stage. After drawing, you can add some final details and elements!
You could add some minor details to the hyena, but feel free to draw a background with other animals to go with it.

Hyenas aren’t exactly known for their bright colors, and that’s the approach we took in the final phase of this hyena drawing.
We used light and dark brown shades to give this lurking scavenger a more realistic look.
We would choose these colors and tints for this image, but feel free to use your own!
You can also play around with your favorite art media and tools to get your desired colors. We can’t wait to see how you finish it!
