How to draw a cat

In this drawing lesson we will talk about how to draw a cat. The fact is that we love cats very much, and we tried to make this lesson perfect. We decomposed the drawing process into a few extremely simple steps, so that each of our readers could easily draw a cat.


Step 1

We start with the most simple constructions: draw a round head, a thorax and a pelvis. We connect these circles with light lines of the neck, spine and tail. Sketch out out limbs by light lines.

Step 2

On the head draw two lines that intersect exactly in the center. Above the horizontal line we draw almond-shaped eyes. Draw pointed ears, nose and mouth.

With the help of short lines we form fur on the neck and front paws. Draw rounded fingers and delete unnecessary lines.

Removing all the remaining guidelines draw out “fur” outlines of the torso, tail and hind paws.

Step 8

Draw long whiskers and add shadows by hatching. If you imagine that light falls from above, then the shadows should lie on the lower edges of the body parts of the cat.
