Kick off the Drawing Challenge With a Free Tutorial!

We posted a tutorial about making armor for a female superhero. Check that out after you’ve done your day one sketch! Since day two of this drawing challenge is a cat, here’s an easy to follow tutorial for an adorable little kitten.

1: Begin with an oval shape for the body and then a smaller circle for the head.

2: Sketch in the eyes, ears and mouth.

3: Add a small circular line for the kitten’s chest, connecting the head and the body.

4: Begin to draw the legs.

5: Add small ovals for the paws and six lines for whiskers. Angle the shape of the eyes and ears.

6: With an eraser, clean up the structural lines and add a few final details.

7: Go over the pencil lines with a felt-tip pen or a brush with India ink. You’re done! Can’t you hear the sweet little meow?
