Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

Begin with a circle for the cat's head, then draw out the body shape and for this cat he/she is laying down relaxing. Sketch in the facial guidelines then proceed to step two.

Step 2:

You will now use the circle guide you made in step one to sketch out the shape of the cat's head and ears like so.

Step 3:

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:

Now we can work on getting almost the whole body drawn out. Sketch the front chest and legs like so, then draw the back arch.

Step 6:

Add the lining for the cat's toes, then draw the stripes on the chest, shoulders, legs and feet.

Step 7:

Here you will draw out the rest of the body and as you can see this kitty is in a laying pose.

Step 8:

Draw in the tail, then add the whiskers on the other side of the face along with the stripes on the body. Don't forget to draw in the toe lines too. Erase your mistakes before leaving this step

Step 9:

When you're done you should end up with this freaked out cat! Meooowww! The light burns my eyeballs! I hope this tutorial taught you a lot on how to draw a cuddly kitty!

    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 ;).
