How to Draw Kawaii Animals

Artist: Dawn / March 20, 2012

Step 1.

You will be drawing two kawaii animals, a dog and cat which means you will be doing double the work. Start by making the head shapes like so, and then sketch in the facial guides.

Step 2.

Using the shapes you just drew, begin sketching out the structure of the kawaii animals's heads and incorporate the ears as well.

Step 3.

Keeping it kawaii, just color in some dots for the eyes, and then draw the noses, mouths, and whiskers. You will need to add some detailing to the kitty's ears.

Step 4.

You will now concentrate on getting the front part of the bodies drawn for each kawaii animal. Start with the kitty, and then move along to the dog. You will then sketch in the hair on the chest and then draw the legs.

Step 5.

Finish drawing the rest of the animals bodies by drawing the back end and the back legs.

Step 6.

Lastly, draw their tails, as well as some blush marks on the dog's cheeks. Then begin cleaning up your kawaii animals so you can color them in.

Step 7.

Here is the drawing when you are all done. Color them in and show people what you have done.

Description: Yup, here it is, kawaii animals in full stretched out cuteness. What better way to draw kawaii style than to make a lesson on "how to draw kawaii animals". I made two simple concepts for the animals, a dog and a cat. One of the main reasons why I like making these kinds of tutorials is because I know artists of all levels will have fun because they are so simple to replicate. For those of you that are familiar with the art of kawaii, you should know that kitty’s and doggies are one of the more popular concepts to draw. Don’t ask me why they are so loved, they just are. This is obviously going to be as simple as writing 1, 2, and 3. You can color in your kawaii cat and dog any shade you like. I always say that choosing your own colors are better than replicating someone else’s because the colors an individual chooses brings out the artists inside. Anyways, that’s about it, I have to get out of here because there is more work for me and I have to get to it. See ya folks later and don’t forget to join me for another session of Live tonight at 8pm eastern time.
