In Ancient Egyptian society, cats were seen as more than mere pets of companions – they held an almost holy status. Many cats were revered and worshipped as Gods, and our feline friends were considered more important than humans in many situations. To play our part in this worship, let’s bring our very own feline friend to life in just a few short, simple steps.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin by taking a black pen, and drawing a curved line at the top of your page. Add a small, curved triangle to the bottom of this for a nose.
Add two bumps to the bottom of the nose for a mouth, and then curve the mouth to the right.
Next, bring a curved line down below this, out to the right…
And add a slightly curved line just above this.
Now, add two triangles to the top of the head for ears.
Add a short jagged line to the bottom of the right triangle, and a curved line behind this.
Now, bring down two curved lines for the neck…
And then add two lines to the bottom for a collar.
Add two more short lines, and then another collar at the bottom of this.
Bring down a curved line on the right, and then a longer curved line on the left.
Add a foot to the bottom of the leg.
Now, bring down two parallel, angled lines to the left of this, and add a small paw to the bottom.
Add another paw in front of the first…
And then bring across two curved lines to the right, curving in front of the paws for the tail.
Add a three sides square shape to the face, and add a small circle inside this to create an eye. Then, add a small triangle above the nose.
Add a ring into the space between the two collars.
Now, add two more thin strips, one at the top and one at the bottom, of the ring.
Now, add a series of short, vertical lines across the width of the collar.
Grab a yellow pen, and go over the outline of your cat, making it glow.
Next, use a red pen for the gem in the center of the ring.
Use the yellow pen to fill in alternate sections of the collar, and then a blue pen for the spaces in between.
Grab a light orange pen for the inner ear.
Use a gray pen for the main body of your cat…
And use the light orange pen to fill in the nose.
