How to Draw a Cat – Sketch of a Cat


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto and
I am very glad to see you again. Today we will sketch a cat. As you saw, we start by doing
the general shape of the head and then the eyes…
our cat will be upside down. The pupils…
and I correct the shape of the eye, which is more like this. We draw the shape of the nose,
mouth and face. Then the general shape of the paws. We detail a little bit better.
I have been using a mechanical pencil with an HB lead. The full list of materials
is in the information bellow the video. We mark some reflections
before shading the eyes. Let´s draw the lower part darker
so as to show the round shape of the eye. We do the shading of the face
with vey short strokes, so as to deliver the texture
of the hair. And we continue in the same way
with the legs, I will only draw well
the front ones. The rest I will leave
with only a line. With this type of shading
you can deliver a very soft texture. We do the last details
to be ready! Please let me know in the comments
what do you think about it. And if you enjoyed it
please give it a LIKE! and subscribe to this channel
…and I will see you on Tuesday.

    Isn't the eye shadows wrong, when the cat is upside down? the light must come from the top or side. correct me if im wrong 🙂

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments! (Note: I did this drawing and video in a week where I flew from Moscow to Kiev, then went to Kharkov, delivered a lecture in the State University of that city and had many meetings, went back to Kiev to set up future art events and I'm packing to fly to London!) Your comments are very refreshing 🙂

    Oh thank you, Leonardo, for your tutorials and help. Without your support I wouldn't have believed in myself. And now I see that my skills really increased!

    and my knowledge of English is very low

    That is your opinion that gives rather pointless feedback, one only needs to scroll through all the comments to see his videos do help people and I know these videos help me in many ways not just to draw but to appreciate life a little more than I normally would.

    Rlly nice but it kinda seems unfinished, I mean if the cat Is on a pillow at least show it and if ur showing the other body parts of the cat then why not add more detail? Idk how to do that stuff myself that's why I'm asking xD
