Description: Well in this next tutorial I figured that I would end the Halloween inspired category with another character that is associated with Halloween. You will now learn "how to draw a black cat". Black cats have been a part of witch tales for centuries. Black cats have always been a cat that is not easily adopted or owned by many people because of the superstitions that folks have against them. A few fables that have been said about the black cat are; if they cross the street in front of you whether you’re in a car, bike or just walking you will have bad luck come your way. Another fable is black cats steal the very breathe from you in your sleep. The symbolism of this animal has many different meanings associated with different countries around the world. Even though black cats have been a part of cultural history, they are still given the cold shoulder when paths are crossed between human and animal. When Halloween nears, local animal shelters sometimes leave their black cats away from the adoption window. Places like pet stores try and put these black felines on display because there are still some people that actually wait until the month of October to adopt a black cat since this is the month that this midnight colored cat is at its plentiful peak. I personally don’t believe in the whole black cats are bad luck thing because it is a myth that has been generated over time and has been told by millions of people through out human existence. This tutorial will show you how to draw a Halloween black cat step by step. The instructions are easy to follow and when you are done you can color him in and paste your Halloween art on a door, window, or even a tree. I will be back with one more tutorial for the day and trust me no more Halloween ones. Peace out people.
