How to Draw a Cougar

Artist: Dawn / December 27, 2007

Step 1.

Begin with a large circle.

Step 2.

Draw a smaller circle for the snout and draw the line of position.

Step 3.

Draw some curves to the snout. Sketch out a foot like shape indicating the mouth. I know it looks kinda like a dragon right now. Lol...

Step 4.

Don't forget to add the nose to the big cat! Add the ears to your cougar as well. See how the cougar is shaping out?!

Step 5.

Start shaping up the the curves for the neck and body. Add some detail to the eyes too.

Step 6.

My favorite part! Let's design the shape of the shape of the teeth. Make these nicely bare too. Another detail too, is the nostrils.

Step 7.

Add the eyebrow to eyes and the some lining around the mouth. Since our cougar is snarling, you'll have to add wrinkles towards the nose. This indicates that your cat is hissing with fury.

Step 8.

Add some fur to the underside of the neck. Almost finished!

Step 9.

Fluff up the face a bit with some rough fur. Flesh out he whiskers as well.

Step 10.

Now, erase those unwanted guidelines and your finished. Enjoy your drawing of the fabtabulous Cougar. Join and submit your own tutorials that others can learn from. I hope this tutorial was helpful, please give feedback if theres mistake

Description: The Cougar is one of the largest solitary cats of any wild animal in the Western Hemisphere. In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw a Cougar with these instructional steps. First I began my drawing using a reference. What’s a reference you ask? It’s a picture of a Cougar that I looked at then redrew it in my own way. I didn’t copy it I just freehanded on my own. After hours of sketching, I scanned it into my computer. Then I opened my Photoshop CS program and redrew the lines. This is an essential technique I use to make my lines crisp and clean. After that, I color my image (yes the beauty!) and made a tutorial out of it using layers. Ah, I mustn’t tell you my secret on how to make my tutorials! Now that I explained how I drew my awesomeness, I will give you information on this predatory cat. The Cougar is the second heaviest cat in the world. The first is the Jaguar. The cougar’s diet consists of deer, sheep, horses, and even sometimes rodents or insects. Just like a kitty! This all sums up to you having fun learning from this inspirational tutorial!
