Hi I have a pet cat and I love animals so I start drawing this

Step 1:

Next, begin sketching out the eyes, then add some shading around the inside of each eye. Draw the nose and lips as well.

Step 4:

Before going any further, sketch the whiskers, and since this is a tiger cat, you will need to add the stripes. Don't forget to add that fuzz along the jawline.

Step 5:

Nice, but I don't believe you drew any of your drawing instructables... I think this is from one of those 'learn to draw' websites... I would love to see some original work here ;).
