Cats are great! It’s a fact. Well, other animals too, but cats. Absolutely Stunning This cat drawing tutorial is a new addition to our ever-growing collection of step-by-step drawing tutorials for all ages.

We like to keep things simple so we’ve streamlined this one as much as possible while still keeping things cute.

We kept the cat mostly texture free because there are so many different species and this allows you to choose your own fur when coloring it. You can make a tabby, tortoiseshell, black and white, black or even pink and green stripe. We’re not here to set the rules 😉. Let your imagination guide you.
