Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below

You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Do you know what a child and a kitten have in common? Both have exceptional body proportions. The baby’s head is disproportionately large, like a kitten’s head. In addition to the head we see two other circles that form the contours of the body, let’s draw this.

Step 2

So we continue the tutorial on how to draw a kitty cat. Adult cats have long graceful legs. This is not surprising, because cats are very agile and flexible people. But kittens are not flexible and agile due to their small and round legs. Therefore, in this step we will draw the feet, which will look like small, round shapes.

Step 3

Every part of a kitten’s body makes them cuter. Kittens with ears are cool, aren’t they? In this step, we’ll draw a vertical circular outline of the tail and a pair of ears that look like regular triangles.

Step 4

Now let’s add eyes to our kitty drawing. As you can see, the eye is significantly shifted towards the lower edge of the head. Our kitten’s eyes look like large, round shapes, lying slightly on the side. Another feature of our kitten is the presence of large round pupils.

Step 5

Now it’s time to draw the lower part of our kitten’s face. To do this, we will draw a shape that looks like a small mushroom. We also added a few additional ovals in this area. These shapes represent the kitten’s nose and cheeks.

Step 6

So at this point we have a rough sketch of this cute kitten. Therefore, in this step, we will move on to creating smaller details. Let’s start by drawing the inside of the kitten’s ears. We won’t be able to draw all the hair covering the kitten’s body, but with the help of small short strokes we will outline small areas of this hair.

Step 7

We keep adding small details. In this step we will draw short rounded toes. As you can see, the fingers seem to stick out slightly forward. To achieve this effect, draw small horizontal lines at the top of each finger.

Step 8

So we are about to finish this tutorial on how to draw a kitten. In this step, we will delete all the redundant construction lines that we used in the previous steps. In addition, we will draw in pencil around the shape of the kitten, its eyes and other body parts. At this stage, you need to press harder on the pencil. Using short strokes, we create a soft fur effect on the kitten’s belly, ears and chest.

Step 9

If we worked with our eyes a little more, our kitten drawing would look a lot more realistic and alive. To achieve this effect, paint over the pupils using a dense layer shadow and make sure to leave some room for the highlights, like in our example. Also, add shadows to other parts of the kitten’s body.

Step 10

If you follow the correct sequence of steps, you should get something like a drawing of a kitten created by the artists of Drawingforall.net.
