How to Draw a German Shepherd Cat

Artist: Dawn / July 18, 2022

Step 1.

Begin like we always do, with two shapes. One for the head and another for the body. Sketch in the facial guidelines as well as the tail guidelines too.

Step 2.

Define the shape of the head like so. Since it is a GSD, you want the cat's head to be blocky.

Step 3.

Here you will add the ears. Instead of making them small, draw them to be wide and large because German Shepherds have big erect ears. Add the marking lines to the ears too.

Step 4.

Now you can draw in the face starting with the mask outlines. As you know German Shepherds have a masked bicolor face. Draw the shapes of the eyebrows too which are also markings on the face.

Step 5.

Here you can draw the nose and mouth followed by the whiskers.

Step 6.

You can draw the big bold eyes. German Shepherds have beautiful eyes that seem to pierce with its gaze.

Step 7.

Start the body formation. As you can see the outline is shaped like a bean. Don't forget the tuft of hair on the chest.

Step 8.

Draw in the front legs and paws.

Step 9.

Draw the toes on the back paw and then sketch in the markings on the body to create that two toned look.

Step 10.

Almost done. All you have to do is draw out the other back paw and then the long bushy tail.

Step 11.

Sketch in the two toned line on the tail and begin erasing the mistakes and guides.

Step 12.

That's it, you are all done drawing a German Shepherd cat. Now you can have fun coloring it in.

Description: I was thinking about starting a series of cats that are in form of popular canines. Since my mom raises German Shepherds, I thought I would start by showing you all how to draw a German Shepherd cat, step by step. This cat is supposed to resemble the German Shepherd Dog. The colors, markings, tail and body formation are all supposed to look like the breed. I have a handful of ideas on what breeds to do next, and if people like them I will continue. For now you can tackle this adorable version of a German Shepherd in cat form. I had fun creating it and I think most of you who tackle this tut will have fun too.
