Forget about kings and peasants, Jedi and Siths, or even good and evil – there is one rivalry that will always stand the test of time: that which exists between cats and dogs. Want to bring this iconic rivalry to life with a classic scene? But at this time the cat will chase the dog! Let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and add a large circle to the left of your page.
Add another smaller circle, this time with the bottom slightly flatter, to the bottom right of this circle.
Now, add a small black oval shape inside this smaller circle, and bring down two curved lines from the bottom to create the nose and mouth.
Add two small black dots above the smaller circles for eyes, and follow these with small curved lines above.
Next, bring up two sets of “horseshoe” shapes on the top of the head, drawing a smaller shape inside the larger one – these will be the ears of your cat.
Take a line across from the left, and angle this down slightly towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page. Add a loop, and take the line across to the right, and then down slightly.
Now, add another curved line to the right, just below the last one…
And add a large, looping leg to the end of this, pointing down towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page.
Connect this to the bottom of the face with a curved line.
Now, add another front leg, just above the first.
Bring a curved line down below the bottom one to create the belly…
And then add another leg to the back, just below the first one.
Bring up two lines at the back to create a cheerful, curved tail.
Take a black fineliner to add a series of small marks to the bottom of the paws.
Return to the pen you had before, and draw a “teardrop” shape, angled at around 90 degrees, to the right of the cat. Add a small triangular shape to the right of this,
Connect these two shapes together with a curved line…
And then add a wavy “u” shape below this.
Now, add a tiny point to the right of the “u” shape, and connect this to the shape above with a curved line, forming the ear, nose, and tongue of the dog. Then, bring the line cross on the left, curve it around in a “C” shape, and then loop it back to the left for a front leg.
Add another ear just behind the first one at the top…
And then add a sharp, small mark in the face to create an eye.
Bring a line across from the back of the ears, and take this up towards the top of the page. Create a point, and then bring the line back down to create a tail.
Add a curve to the bottom of the tail, and then add another, horizontal curved line below this.
Now, add two long, thin, curved legs to the back of your dog…
And add a curved shape in front of this, with a small black oval at the top.
Draw a curved line below the tummy, getting smaller as it reaches the front legs.
Add another paw to the front of the dog…
And then add a “bump” just below the eye, and take the line of this parallel with the curve of the chest.
Use the black pen to add small dots and circles on the back paws.
Now, add three pointed stripes to the top of the back of the cat.
Grab an orange pen, and shade the section at the bottom of the dog’s chin.
Now, use a brown pen for the top of the back, head, and tail…
And follow this by using an orange pen for the tummy and back legs.
Use a pink pen to shade the stripes, tummy, nose, and ears of the feline friend.
Then, use a bright orange pen to finish the cat’s coat.
And there we have it – a cat chasing her natural enemy, the dog. This is one of the oldest and best-known tales, and we have brought it to life.
