Whether they have found the perfect patch of sun, are relaxing after a delicious meal, or simply taking some time out of their busy routine, a cat lying down is an undeniably adorable sight to see. Want to learn how to draw your very own furry friend in just a few short steps? Let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin by taking a black fineliner pen, and adding a small triangle shape to the bottom of your page, in the left half. Fill this in with the black fineliner.
Add a large, bumpy “L” shape around the triangle, with a slight bump on the left stem.
Add a small semicircle just inside the stem of the “L”, slightly above the triangle.
Add another line curving up from just below the “bump”, heading up towards the top of the page.
Continue this line up to the top right-hand corner of the page, and then curve it across to the left, ending at a point. Bring the line back down and in to meet the top of the “L”.
Add a smaller triangle shape inside the larger triangle you just created.
Then, add a smaller semicircle just to the right of the first to create the second eye.
Return to the line at the bottom right corner of the triangle, and add a curved horizontal line heading off to the right. At the end of this, add another small triangle to create another ear.
Add another, smaller triangle inside the first…
And then bring a curved line across to the left. At the end of the curve, add three small bumps, and then bring the line across to meet the bottom of the face.
Add another leg and paw to the right of the face…
On the bottom line, add another small semicircle.
Now, return to the right ear, and add another curved line emerging from the bottom right corner. Bring this up and across, before curving back down towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page.
Now, add another horizontal line heading from the semicircle at the bottom towards the right-hand side of the page.
At the end of this line, add another curved line, with the end flicking up slightly. There should be a gap on the right-hand side.
In the gap, add a small “bump”, and bring the line down towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page. At the end of this, add a short bump heading across to the left, then bring the line back up to reach the bottom of the gap.
Just above this back foot, bring two curved lines up to flick towards the right corner of the page, and join them at the end with a curve to create a tail.
Now, add two small semicircles inside the tail, giving your kitty cute patches.
Add another two patches to the body, just in front of the back legs…
And fill in the ears with a pink pen.
Take a light brown pen, and fill in the patch on the tail, and the front one on the body…
And use a gray pen for the tail, the other patch, and the patch on the front of the face.
And… relax. Doesn’t your kitty look super relaxed and comfortable? It’s enough to make you want to lie down for a nap beside her…
