The following is an older video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing a big circle in the middle of the page. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s only a guide for Tom’s head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. The vertical line should be closer to the right side. Give these lines a slight bend to contour to the circle.
Step 3: On top of the horizontal line on either side of the vertical line, draw a long arc similar to an upside-down letter U. These will be guides for Tom's eyes. Draw the eye on the right slightly smaller because of perspective.
Step 4: To the right of the vertical line and under the horizontal line, draw a guide for this cartoon cat's nose as a small upside-down triangle.
Step 5: On the bottom part of the circle and on the left side of the vertical line, draw a guide for Tom's mouth. It resembles the letter U with a vertical line over it. Tom's mouth should be grazing the vertical construction line on the right.
