The tutorial on how to draw a realistic cat is intended for kids with some experience in drawing. At first, draw the general outline of a cat sitting still, then focus on its head and feet. Finally, if your drawing looks pale, you might want to add color with crayons. It is not easy to draw Kittens and cats, but if you follow the step-by-step method using pencil, it is quite possible to get it right. Here's a good lesson on drawing a realistic cat.
Start with a circle for for the shape of cat's face and add two circles for the body. Draw two vertical lines at the base for the cat's front legs.
According to the primary contours circle the body and head of the cat. Next, add three small ovals for the cat's paws.
Draw the front legs. The cat's legs should be the same in length and thickness. After drawing it, add an initial contour (small oval) for the cat's face.
Erase all unnecessary lines that you drew in the early stages. To finish the sketch, draw the cat's face in detail. Draw the muzzle right - it is the most important part.
Draw the cat's face, as shown in the figure. Draw eyes, nose and cat's mouth, using the outline drawn in the previous step. Don't forget to draw the cat's claws and whiskers. After that, you can proceed to the final step your drawing a Cat.
At this point, work on the cat's fur. To do this, apply small rapid strokes of a pencil on our initial lines, as shown on my figure here. Now, your cat looks realistic, you only need to shade in your cat's drawing. While I simply shaded in my drawing with #2 pencil, I recommend using colored pencils.
This way, the picture of a cat will be more lively and impressive. Realistic Cat drawing is now complete!
