How to Draw a cute Long Cat- Step by Step for Beginners

I always start with simple shapes so that anyone can do this drawing.

First, we’re going to draw the cat’s head like this – a gentle curve.

Okay, now draw 2 small ears on each side.

Next, draw the sides of the cat’s face – one side will be shorter since the body is going to follow.

Remember to draw the eyes and mouth!

This is by far one of the best courses I’ve taken that is so cute and so educational.

The course is in English, and it’s amazing!

A sketchbook, Photoshop, and a graphic tablet so that you can draw the kawaii characters. If you want to make stickers, you’ll need a printer and sticker sheets.
