How To Draw A Cat Cute with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Easy animals to draw for beginners and kids.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Starting from the top right part of the paper, draw two triangular cat ears connected by a downward curved line. This figure outlines the kitten’s ears as well as the top of the head.
To ensure that the outline will be placed in the proper position, draw a horizontal and a vertical line on the paper to create reference lines. When drawn correctly, the guide will divide your paper into four square dividers. The empty space in the upper right corner is where you should draw the outline.
By starting from the top right part of the paper, you have enough space to draw the kitten’s entire face and body.
Extend the lines from below the ears down to the kitten’s chin. The kitten’s face shape should be slightly wider at the button than the top to accentuate its chubby cheeks.
Don’t forget to add spiky tufts of hair on each side of the face!
Just below the kitten’s face, draw the front paws side by side. As shown in the illustration, you can draw the front legs by drawing overlapping curved lines below the face.
Emphasize the fur on the kitten’s chest area to make the kitten look more fluffy and voluminous!
Draw the bottom part of the kitten’s body
Draw a downward curved line to outline the back and bottom of the kitten. The back should be structured downward, while the bottom should be bent like a semicircle.
When drawn correctly, the outline will resemble a downward sloping line so that the kitten looks like it is sitting down.
Next, Draw the kitten’s hind legs
Draw another curved line opposite the bottom of the kitten to outline the thighs. Then, draw a paw with your paw just below the kitten’s bent thigh.
Don’t forget to add lines on the kitten’s paws to create a division between its claws.
Then draw the kitten’s tail
On the bottom part of the kitten’s body, draw a long, fluffy tail. As you can see in the illustration, the tail is as simple as drawing a curved sausage.
However, you can draw the tail any way you like. You can make it as hairy as you want by adding large tufts of feathers that stick out all over the tail.
Outline of a kitten’s inner ear
Inside the kitten’s ear that we drew in the first step, let’s draw a triangle following the contour.
This will outline the inside of the ears, thus making the kitten’s body features look more likeable and realistic.
Now, Draw the Kitten’s Nose and Mouth
On the bottom part of the face, draw an upside down triangle in the center to create the kitten’s nose.
Then, draw two curved lines just below the nose to outline the mouth. The kitten’s mouth should look like a curved letter “w”.
Then Draw the kitten’s eyes
Just above the nose, draw two vertical ovals slightly apart.
Then, inside the eyes, draw two other small ovals. Apply shadow on the sides of the eyes from the small dots inside the eyes to create a lovely “sparkling eye” effect.
Don’t hesitate to add any facial features that you think look great. You can even add eyelashes and beards if you like!
Finally, here’s the fun part — coloring your amazing drawing! This is the part where you can show your artistic talent and ability to mix and match different colors.
