Refine And Define Your Cat Drawing

Darken And Improve The Pencil Lines

Now that you have the rough shape you can begin to define the elements of your Cat, such as the face and the fur around the Cat and darkening the pencil lines helps to achieve a clear drawing. This is also your chance to improve the bits you don't like and make the drawing as a whole become more presentable.

Sketching In The Stripes Add Character To Your Cat

Furry Stripes Always Look Good On A Cat

When adding the black furry stripes it suddenly makes your drawing look more Cat like and also adds elements of visual interest. Although don't make the designs too complicated try and make them as simple as possible so that when it comes to the coloring stage it's easier to lay down some broad color.

Ink Your Cat Pencil Drawing

When I inked this drawing I used a gel ink pen which are always cheap and affordable to use and the trick is to go over the pencil lines but also improve the drawing along the way and if that means cleaning up some areas that need attention then do that in this stage.

Pilot ink pens are also good to use as are Sharpie markers, it's entirely up to you what ink pens you use though.

How To Color Your Cartoon Cat Ink Drawing

Coloring With Crayola Twistable Pencils

When coloring in this stage I used 4 main colors to achieve the finished color drawing effect.

A Black for the furry stripes all over the Cats body.

An Orange for the remaining fur on the Cat

A Yellow for the highlights on the Orange fur.

And a Pink for the nose and lip.

Below you can see the step by step process of the coloring stage and notice that after coloring with the orange I allowed some white space which would be for the yellow color highlights which help to blend the two colors together.

Thanks for the tutorial. I work in colored pencils. I'm going to get some Twistables for my grandkids. I also use Prismacolors, but maybe I'll give these a try.

Cheers now! Lol Sunforged! I remember the days of my Son and Daughter grabbing all of my best art pencils and crayons and snapping each and every one of em! the little....Darlings!

Crayola Twistables are my best art pencils and they are up there with my Prismacolors too.

I'm working on a flipbook animated project for a new video hubpage and it's turning out quite well....

@siserou Thanks! It's a chore to do to add these images one by one but I like the look of the wizzles with lots of step by step images as it is something that I haven't seen other artists really do as they prefer to let you fill in the blanks of a complicated drawing tutorial and simply don't break it down sufficiently.

siserou on 03/02/2012

Wow, this is a brilliant set of instructions. I am useless at drawing, but when I see how you do it step by step, it certainly is much easier to do and understand. I think the boys and I will have a project for the weekend because they do like to draw, they just always want ideas from me.
Well done ~!

Sunforged on 03/02/2012

A fun tutorial! You know afterreading, if you scroll up and down real quick, the images almost become animated, like a flipbook.

I haven't seen twistable crayons before, seems like a very clever take. As of late, I have been confiscating crayon from the baby as she attempts to feed them to the dogs. Perhaps, this style would be less appealing or hold up to a few more chomps!

Thank you! certainly my how to draw cartoon cat turned out better than my how to draw cartoon dog one, but then I seem to draw cartoon cats more than dogs even though in real life I like Dogs better as pets lol ah well! cheers now!

dustytoes on 02/14/2012

Excellent tutorial with great photos of your cartoon cat. I've never liked to draw animals as they always ended up looking like unrecognizable cartoons!

onepagearticles on 02/06/2012

cheers now! there will be more cartoon drawings as time goes by....

onepagearticles on 02/05/2012

cheers now Katie! I've definitely got more planned.

katiem2 on 02/04/2012

My daughter loves your work, and cats are a favorite, thanks and keep em coming.

Thanks Paula! I was certainly trying to draw something other than I always draw for a change....diversification and all that jazz!
