Okay, I'm going to show you how to draw a kitten next. First of all, we need to draw an oval, and I'm going to have my oval at an angle and you'll see why in a while, okay? Then, we do quite a small egg shape underneath like so. Then, we need to add some triangles, well, you need these quite big because this is a kitten and these are going to become the ears.
Then, we need to add a little bit more detail, we need to add another circle behind the original egg shape, just here. Then, on the bottom of the egg shape, we add a circle, and another little circle just here. Then, we add a little tube shape here, and another one just here.
And then, we want a doughnut shape – it's what I like to call them – a doughnut shape on the bottom like this and obviously, that is going to become the cat's feet. And do another little doughnut just there, and another little doughnut just there. So, what we're going to do is we're going to divide the face in half across here.
And then, we're going to draw a line down the centre. And then, we're going to, about here, draw another line, and create an upside-down triangle. Now, we need to do the eyes.
Now, the eyes actually come either side of this triangle, so we come up, and because they've got slightly almond-shaped eyes, you want to come up then across like this. And that's how you create the almond-shaped angle. Next, I'm going to work on the ears, so we need to create a circle - a line on the insides like this, and a few hairs because cat's have - I don't know if you notice - cats have hairs on the insides of their ears just there.
I'm going to make my cat quite a fluffy one, so I'm going to add lots and lots of fluff, lots of hair to my kitten. Now, we need to get rid of some of our guidelines which are all over the show, and showing up rather a lot at the moment. And you would just see a little bit of tail poking out of the back like this, you wouldn't see a huge amount and then, what we can do is we can shade in.
And there you are, that is really how to draw a kitten.
