How to draw cute kitten 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 outlines the kitten’s ears as well as the top of its head.
To ensure that the border will be positioned properly, draw a horizontal and vertical line on the paper to create reference lines. When drawn correctly, the guide will divide your paper into four squares. The space in the upper right corner is where you should draw the outline.
By starting from the upper right part of the paper, you will have enough space to draw the entire face and body of the kitten.
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 at the top to accentuate its chubby cheeks.
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 bouncy!
Draw a downward curved line to contour the kitten’s back and bottom. The back side should have a downward facing structure, while the bottom side should be curved like a semi-circle.
When drawn correctly, the outline will slope down to make the kitten look like it’s sitting down.
Draw another curved line opposite the kitten’s bottom to outline the thighs. Then, draw a paw with the 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.
At the bottom of the kitten’s body, draw a long, soft 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 patches of fur sticking out all over the tail.
Inside the kitten’s ear that we drew in the first step, draw a triangle following the contour.
This will outline the inside of the ear, thus giving the kitten’s body features more depth and realism.
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 will look like a “w”.
Just above the nose, draw two vertical ovals slightly apart.
Then, in the eyes, draw two more small ovals. Apply eye shadow from small dots on the inside of the eye to create a lovely “sparkling eye” effect.
Finally, color the picture
