How to Draw a Cat for Beginners

Artist: Dawn / August 11, 2020

Step 1.

Make two circles, one for the head and the other for the body. You will also need to sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Now draw out the actual shape of the cat's face and add some tufts of hair at the top.

Step 3.

Draw two big pointy cat ears with the detailing inside.

Step 4.

Next, make two almond shaped eyes, color in some pupils and if you'd like add a patch mark over one eye. Give this cat a nose and smile then some whiskers and eyebrows.

Step 5.

Draw the chest and front legs as well as the small paws.

Step 6.

Finish the cat off with the back and butt area as well as a long cat tail and tuft of hair on the chest. Erase the mistakes and guides.

Step 7.

That's it, you are done. Color in your cat and show off the work to others.
