How to Draw a Manga Cat

Artist: Dawn / August 28, 2012

Step 1.

Begin by making a large circle for the cat's head, then add the small egg shape for the body. Don't forget to add those facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Okay, so we have the basic shapes drawn out which will enable us to sketch out the actual form of the manga cat's head. The head should be wide, big, and have some fluff along the cheeks and on top of the head. Draw out the ears like so, then you're    

Step 3.

We can start the process of drawing out the crescent shaped lines for the beginning parts of the eyes. After that, draw the small snout which should include the nose, mouth, and chin. Add detailing inside of the ears, then proceed to step four.

Step 4.

Finish drawing out the eyes until they are circular in shape. When that is finished you can add the kitty's whiskers.

Step 5.

Now we will start with drawing the body. You start by drawing out the fluffy chest, then the front leg and rounded paw.

Step 6.

Draw in the other legs which should include one in the front and two in the back, along with each foot or paw. Draw the lining for the manga cat's back, then draw in the puffy tail which seems to be in a friendly expressive pose.

Step 7.

At this point to can begin cleaning up the drawing by erasing the mistakes. Once that is done add the toes or toe lines to finish everything off.

Step 8.

In the end you should come out with something like the drawing you see here. Now all you have to do is choose your colors and get to work with bringing this manga cat to life.

Description: I guess I'll start the day with a cute, bright, and colorful lesson on "how to draw a manga cat", step by step. I have been wanting to do something like this for a while, and I was so happy that someone requested one. I know I remember getting a few requests in the past for me to make a tutorial on drawing a manga cat, but for some reason it just slipped my mind and I never got around to making one. I love drawing anime or manga related animals because they are so simple, and because you can exaggerate a bit when creating their look. As you know manga and anime style of drawing includes some exaggerated parts of some sorts whether the breasts be too big, or bodies too small or the other way around, Anyways, I had a lot if fun with this drawing. I'm also glad that I colored in the kitty all white and gave her a nice florescent pink color for her eyes. The background is wicked too because it really adds a nice feeling to the whole scenery and even tells a story a bit. Well, that's all I have to say for this description. There is more coming your way so stay tuned in to see what it will be. Adios people and enjoy!
