Drawing Tutorial -- Cats by Nixhil Drawing Tutorial -- Cats by Nixhil
Just a quick tutorial about how I draw cats. I hope this helps someone :)

Also excuse my handwriting lol. I hope its all legible.


This is the way I do it with my style, so please dont copy it exactly because that's no fun! You should test it out using your OWN style--just using the same techniques. It's mostly about learning how to draw cats over just how I do it! :3 Research is your best friend. Seriously.

Part 2

Great tutorial! Shame that I can't really draw... 
Can you have a look at mine (Bluemoon's the most recent) and tell me what I'm doing wrong? I've tried to do it like you have but mine just don't work!

Hm, looks to me like you dont have a foundation for the anatomy and you're just doing the outlines and drawing it by sight rather than doing the sketch first. The back slopes too much, the eyes are misplaced and lopsided, and the mouth is too far over :) I hope that helps!

It's not muuuch different from my style, I still have exaggerated head and ears etc but I made it a little more realistic~
