To draw this Black Kitty in a Pumpkin step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two curved lines next to each other for the black cat's eyes. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. Pay attention to the placement of the eyes. Don't draw them too far apart. When you get the shapes right, darken the lines and make them thick for eyelashes. The longer you make these curved lines, that bigger this Halloween cat's eyes will be.
Step 2: Under each curved line, draw an oval for the cat's irises. Make the ovals the same size and position them near the middle of each eye.
Step 3: Inside each iris, on the top, left side, draw a small circle for highlight/glare. In the middle of each iris, draw a big dot for the black cat's pupils. As you shade the pupils, don't overlap the small glare circles. Draw another small circle on the lower, right side of each iris for more highlights.
Step 4: Between the cat's eyes, draw a tiny triangle for the nose. Under the nose, draw a curved line for the mouth. The mouth should be similar to a number 3 on its side.
Step 5: Below the cat's face, draw a long, curved, horizontal line for the bottom part of the head. The tips of the line should extend farther outward than the eyes.
