How to Draw Cat Eyes

Step 1.


Sketching this is pretty straight forward , nothing very complex , just use follow the guide lines . The flicks on my tablet aren't very helpful , they don't let you draw smooth lines, and I don't know how to get rid of them .

Step 2.


Your sketch should look like this , nothing very complex .

Step 3.


Cat eyes, when you look at them from the right angle, look like glass , the reflections are very visible, also distorted , because eyes are spherical. First we need to outline the areas which will remain white . Personally , I prefer this method, bec   

Step 4.


Now a bit of shading on the lower area. Notice how it's curved ? That's actually a table surface, but reflected in the cats eye , it's curved and stretches towards the center, like in a black whole .Use sharp pencils because you want detail .

Step 5.


Now shade the upper side and a bit of the center . I used Q Tips to make the shading smoother .Also, the little lines around the pupil , those are very important , so make sure not to forget them .

Step 6.


Finish with some darker shading and some additional details .

Step 7.


Follow the same steps for the second eyes . Well not the exact same steps, as you can see the details are different, but it's really the same thing. it's only a matter of positioning. The eyes don't need to look the same.

Step 10.


Finish the left side, then move on the the forehead .

Step 11.


Those weird triangle things I made indicated where the black fur would be , it's important to follow them .

Step 12.


I believe you are done . If you're reading this before attempting the tutorial, please note that it took me a lot of time to make this, so don't feel down if two hours have passed and you haven't done much . As I always say , don't rush, take your ti
