Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the picture. Draw an oval for the body of the cat. Add a line, which will act as the center of its head.

Draw the shape of the body: the chest and neck. Add a guideline for the tail.

Step 3

Draw guidelines for the cat’s legs and ears.

Step 4

Outline the shapes of the legs.

Step 5

Draw the feet, toes, face and tail. Pay special attention to the top part of the head.

Step 6

Draw some fur on the legs and the eyes. Smooth the shape of the head.

Step 7

Make the fur appear spiky along the tail and body. Add the pupils and whiskers.

Step 8

Contour the black cat, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the ground. Erase all guidelines.
