Let’s start by talking about the different ways you can draw cats’ bodies and their poses. The best way to start drawing a cat is to figure out what body pose your animal will draw. As you can see, this tip is about the things you should think about when drawing a pose.
Viewed from the side, the cat’s rib cage should have a downward sloping curve. A big mistake when drawing a cat’s chest is that its ribs appear to be pushed up towards the neck.
The cat has different types of pupils, slit and round. You can try other types of students. This is a good way to be creative. Another important note to remember is that a cat’s eye has two layers of black. This allows their eyes to look mysterious and realistic.
Add a patch of tons of mixes to the base layer. What you will draw is fur.
Here, paint evenly using small strokes for the first layer of hair. This coat should be a gentle fur tone. What I would recommend using, is a small pixel brush for this particular task.
In this step, you will take time as you start to paint the coat lighter using longer strokes. Remember to take your time, and don’t rush.
Now you will start using a darker color with a subtle tint. Add small strokes under the lightest parts of the fur. This will help give depth and tone to the texture of the fur.
If you use a noise filter, it will add a semi-realistic touch to your picture. To do this, follow the instructions and you’ll start creating a beautiful addition to the cat’s coat.
Here I show you how and how much noise should be set. Just copy what I’m doing in the picture to succeed at this drawing step.
For those of you who want a lesson on how to draw a realistic cat using the usual steps, let’s get started. Start with a circle for the head and add guide lines on the face. Next draw an egg shape, followed by another weird shape that will later be the cat’s thigh. Finally, draw a neckline.
Now you will start sketching the shape of the cat’s actual head. Since the animal is located on the head or viewed from the front, you will be less likely to see the shape of the neck as the fur covers most of it. When drawing the head, don’t forget to add mounds for the cat’s ears. Next, use facial guides by sketching the cat’s eyes, nose, and mouth.
Draw tissue lines for the ears, and then add some fluff on the forehead. Next, draw some whiskers, and then continue to outline the body including the front legs. Once that’s done, add some details and lines on the body to emphasize the bust.
To finally wrap up this drawing tutorial on how to draw a realistic cat, you’ll outline the cat’s back head, then the back and front paws of the cat. Finally, draw the tail and start erasing all the lines and shapes you drew in step one to clean up your drawing.
Now that you’ve finished drawing a realistic cat, let’s add some shadows to the areas you see here to add a touch of realism to your drawing. Choose a color and style for the fur markings if applicable, and a color for your feline creature.
