Step 1

For your first step in this guide on how to draw a cat, you’ll want to draw a circle in pencil. It can help to use a drawing compass to draw a perfect circle if you’re struggling to do one freehand.

This circle will serve as a guide for you as you start to draw in the outline of the head.

Once you have the circle, carefully draw in the lines that start to make up the head of your cat drawing, using the reference image as a guide.

If you’re having a hard time drawing in the outline, you could use a pencil to do this part as well and then use a pen to go over it when you’re happy.

Step 2

Rub out the pencil circle
Now that you’ve drawn in the beginning of your cat drawing’s head, you can erase the pencil circle that you drew as a guide.

If you went over it in pen, make sure that the pen ink is dry before you erase the pencil!

Step 3

Next, draw in the ears
We have the beginning of the head of your cat drawing done, so now we will add in the ears.

For the right side ear, draw in a slightly curved triangle without a bottom connecting at the space you left in the head outline. Draw in another triangle for the inner ear.

Next, draw in the curved ear shape for the left ear as it appears in the reference picture and then draw in the inner ear.

Step 4

Now draw in the first leg
The head outline is now complete for your cat drawing, and next we will be drawing in the chest and first leg of the cat.

Carefully draw in a curved line as it appears in the reference image to form the chest. Draw in a straighter line for the leg and give it a curved line for the foot.

Finally, you’ll need to draw another line coming up from the foot to form the other side of the leg. This part can be tricky so make sure to consult the reference picture closely!

Step 5

Next you will be adding Another leg
For the next step in this guide on how to draw a cat, you will need to add a zigzag type line above the left leg that you’ve already drawn in.

You will then draw in the right leg, which will look almost identical to the left leg except for the fact that it extends higher on the right side.

Step 6

Add in the back and two remaining legs
You’re very close to finishing your cat drawing now, so for this next step you should draw in a curved line down from the neck.

This is another step where you should closely follow the reference image as a guide.

Once you have the back drawn in, you can add in the two back feet as seen in the picture. Don’t forget to add the toe divides!

Step 7

Now draw in the tail and final leg detail
For this next step, you can draw in the tail which will take on a curvy sausage shape.

Once you have the tail drawn in, the only remaining thing is to draw in a curved line from the back foot to make the cat’s leg. With this step, your cat drawing is almost done!

Step 8

Add the face and final details
You’ve almost finished your journey of learning how to draw a cat, but your cat drawing needs a face!

You can start by drawing in a nose with a smiley cat mouth extending beneath it as you can see in the reference picture.

You can then draw in a jagged line above the nose to suggest a snout. Then, you can draw in six lines to form the cat’s whiskers.

Finally, we’ll be adding in the eyes. The eyes in the reference picture are made up of a series of circles within one another with some eyelashes.

You can draw it in this style, or if it’s proving difficult you could use two circles with a dot in each for a simpler yet equally cute look!

Step 9

Finish it off with some color
The last step is one of the most fun in the process of learning how to draw a cat, and that is to add in some color!
