First, you find a cat, either from images online or a real one lying around the house. Next, find something to draw with and upon. Working very loosely, sketch a blobby circle that suggestsÂ the cat’sÂ overall outline shape. If the catâ€™s shape is too complicated at first, think of chunking up its body. Please donâ€™t do this literally. Draw a basic shape for its head, then its upper body following the hindquarters and tail. Donâ€™t worry about detail, but do look very closely at how the â€œbody chunksâ€ relate to the other. (Tip: Never look directly into the eyes of a cat for more than a few seconds. Longer stares will often trigger a psychotic reaction requiring first aid. Though if youâ€™re lucky, you might escape with a mere hissy fit. This is one of the few times in life whenÂ a hissy fit is preferred.) Rough in more detail slowly. Then spend a half hour every day drawing cats and within a yearâ€™s time youâ€™ll be darn good at it, and youâ€™ll be done having to correct friends when they point at your drawing and say â€œNice cowâ€.
