In this beginner-friendly guide, we’ll walk you through the process of creating a charming cat drawing in six easy-to-follow steps.

Step One: Face, Eyes, Nose

Start by drawing the cat’s head by using a curved line for the chin and a higher arched curve for the top with some points on the sides to enhance the whiskers. Then draw two circular eyes and a small upside down triangle for the nose.

Step Two: Ears, Mouth, Whiskers

Add rounded triangular ears on top of the head. Draw a w shape under the nose for the mouth and an upside down triangle connected to that for the mouth. Add in some whiskers and some little dots to add some realism.

Step Three: Body

From the bottom of the head, draw a straight line on one side and a cuved line on the other depending which direction your cat is facing.

Step Four: Legs, Hair Detail

  1. Add in a back leg and two front legs with two lines for toes. Add in some curves for hair on the chest and the cats face as well as some eyebrows above the eyes.

Step Five: Tail and Pupils

Extend a long, curved line from the back of the body for the tail.

Draw small oval shapes inside the eyes for the pupils, leaving a small white highlight for added realism.

Step Six: Outline and Colour as You Please

Go over your sketch with a darker pen or pencil to outline the cat’s features and add any final details and erase any overlapping lines or unnecessary guidelines.

Choose your favourite colours and fill in the cat’s fur, eyes, nose, and any other details.

And there you have it—a cute and charming cat drawing in just six simple steps! Feel free to customise your cat with different colours, patterns, and expressions to make it uniquely yours.
