To draw a sleeping cat step by step, follow the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step by step drawings below the video. new lines at each step are shown in red, so you’ll know exactly what to draw next. you may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. take your time and draw at your own pace.
the step-by-step video tutorial written:
For the first few steps, don’t press too hard with the stylus. use light, smooth strokes to start.
step 1: draw a circle on the left side of the paper as a guide for the sleeping cat’s head. first make four small marks to indicate the height and width of the circle. then connect the marks using curved lines. draw lightly at first so it’s easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you’re having trouble drawing the circle, trace the outside rim of a cup, lid, or any other object with a circular rim. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle, check out this tutorial: Four Easy Ways to Draw a Circle.
step 2: draw a curved horizontal line across the sleeping cat’s head to help you add facial features later. besides that, draw a short vertical line for another construction guide.
step 3: draw a small circle on the bottom of the head as a guide for the muzzle. the bottom edge of this circle should be outside the larger circle and should be close to the right hand side.
step 4: at the top of the head, draw two small triangle shapes as guidelines for the sleeping cat’s ears. separate the ears and pay attention to their size in relation to the head.
step 5: now add the guideline for the body by first making a small mark in the far right side. the space between the head and the mark should be almost twice the width of the head. just below the sleeping cat’s head, draw a very long horizontal line that curves to the right and connects to the mark.
slightly above the ear on the right, make a small mark to indicate the upper body. continue drawing the mark to the left and fold it down so it meets the long horizontal line at the bottom. do not overlap the cat’s ear. extend the line to the right as well to close the shape. the general shape of the body should be similar to a twisted oval/egg.
