How to Draw a Manga Cat

Artist: mstormw / October 17, 2010

Step 1.

okay, lets put in some guidelines. you don't need to draw these, it just makes it easier. These guidelines are basically a sick cat! Circle for the head and just draw so sraight lines for the body and legs.

Step 2.

Draw in the head. The ears are at a slight angle, and there are slightly longer tufts of fur at each side of the face.

Step 3.

Draw the features on the face. The eyes are big and elongated to give that cute effect. The chest fur is like the tufts on the side of the face. try to vary each tuft, but don't go extreame!

Step 4.

Draw in the rest of the chest and the front legs. Each leg should be parallel to and surrounding the guidelines. The back of the front leg also has the longer fur.

Step 5.

Draw in the underside of the cat. This ia=s also longer fur. The back leg is a bit more odd. create a bend at the knee, which should leave a little kink in the back of the leg. The cat should also not be flat footed

Step 6.

Draw in the other back leg. It should be the same as the first one, but slightly obscured by the front one. Also, draw out the line of the back. It sould have a litle bump in the center of it. Carry on the line parallel to the giudelines to start the   

Step 7.

Finally, draw the rest of the tail, there is another longer tuft of fur by the backside, and at the tip of the tail

Step 8.

Awesome! you've drawn your Chibi/Manga cat! please rate and comment, and I hope to do another tut really soon!!! =)

Description: Okay, this is my fourth tut! Sorry I haven't done one in a while, so hopefully this should redeem me!!! This is a ver simple cat in anime style, so you can do whatever to it that makes it yours. I haven't put the marking into the tut, so you can mess around with it, and experiment with how you want to do the markings. Enjoy!
