Cat Scratch Tattoo Drawing Lesson

Artist: Dawn / October 6, 2020

Step 1.

Begin by making two shapes, one for the head and another for the body. Sketch in the facial guidelines next.

Step 2.

We will now use the guidelines to draw in the cat's face, neck and some of the body. When drawing the eyes make sure they are big circles that bulge out of the head. Color in two pupils and then you can proceed to step three.

Step 3.

This cat is scratching down the wall so the front legs are to be drawn in a manner that conveys that. You will draw the paws and claws with each toe spread out to emphasize the nervous feeling the cat is in. Draw the brows, whiskers and nose tip as w   

Step 4.

Here all you have to do is draw in the back end of the cat body. This can be done by drawing the hind legs, back paws and claws, then the long tail.

Step 5.

All you have to do now is draw the scratches to the wall in the same line with the claws. Make sure the scratch lines are not just a straight line. Also draw the sweat dripping from the cat's brow. Erase the mistakes and visible guides as well.

Step 6.

That's it. You have just completed this drawing of a cat falling down the wall in an attempt to climb. I hope you had fun. Be sure to color in your drawing.

Description: Here is a playful drawing tutorial that I know many folks will love. It is a black cartoon or comic strip style cat falling down a wall with scratch marks happening along the way. The idea for this lesson came from a series of tattoo art that I browsed and I knew I wanted to make a playful cat that sort of reminded me of Garfield at the same time. This would make a great tattoo for those of you who love cats and have been scratched by them in the past. I know I have many cat scratch scares to prove it. Anyways, have fun and let me know if you enjoyed the tut.
