How To Draw Cartoon Kitten


Here, I show you how to draw cartoon kitten. Steps in this tutorial are very simple and easy to follow.
Before you begin to draw observe the picture carefully, this is important.

If this pose of playing kitten looks too complicated, then try to draw the sitting kitty first.

Secret of your drawing success is hidden in careful observation. Let’s begin :)

Notice the posture of this kitty: playful, surprised pose, watching the small bee.

Obviously the small bee seems to be upset. As if the bee wanted to say : I'll teach you a lesson

Also, notice the surprised expression of kitty’s face; especially notice the eyes, the mouth.



Let's Draw This Cute Cartoon Kitten With A Little Bee

Draw a circle and a “noodle” - approximately the same as on this picture. The circle represents kitty’s head and the noodle is the body.

Size of the circle and the noodle determines the size of the head, and the body of your kitty.

Draw the legs. Just draw them as you see them on this picture.

Now, lets begin to outline the face and the head. In order to keep the symmetry of both sides of the face, draw two crossing lines.

Vertical line is straight and the horizontal is curved. These two lines will be our guidelines when drawing the face details.

Erase the part of the body-noodle that enters the head circle.

Draw two ellipses in the same angle and size sitting on the curved horizontal line.
Draw them approximately in the same distance from each other as you see on this picture. The space between them is necessary for kitty’s nose :)

On both upper sides of the head draw quarter-circles. These will be the place for ears.
See, the whole process of drawing the cartoon kitten is pretty simple. The point is to know the sequence.

Draw inner ellipse inside each eye (this will be the iris). Here, you should have enough space between the eyes for the nose. Draw two smaller ellipses and the tip of the nose.

Draw the outer silhouette of the head. Notice that both sides of kitty’s face are wider. Draw the ears and the tail.

Now, you will need a soft pencil (B4 or softer) to draw the outer contours. Draw a distinct outer contour of the entire kitty as you see on the picture.




Work out the rest of kitty’s nose and draw a small opened mouth. Notice that the mouth is tear-shaped, because this kitty is surprised :) Draw the eyebrows.

Now you can erase all help-guide-lines you made in the beginning. Use eraser or pencil-type-eraser as necessary.

Darken the outer side on ears and the tail. Work out the eyes and mouth. Slightly shade the whole body.

Leave white parts white as you see on the picture. Paws, nose, belly and inner part on ears. Now your kitty is complete. You’ve successfully learned how to draw cartoon kitten.

In order to make this drawing more interesting, let’s draw a small bee that makes this kitty surprised.

Draw small circle and (again) a noodle. Circle is the head and noodle is the belly (body).

Draw the wings and lines on back of the bee’s body.

This small bee is upset somehow. Draw its legs and arms. Draw the bee’s nose and the eye, the same way as on the picture.

Darken the bee’s feet, hands and the back part of bee’s head. Draw the antennas and the sting on the bee’s back.

…yes, you've probably noticed…I forgot to draw the kitty’s whiskers :) So here they are.
