How To Draw A Cat Who Is About To Pounce. Free Drawing Worksheet

This simple how to draw a cat about to pounce worksheet will help give the young artist confidence in drawing.

Parents, teachers and homeschool families will be able to use this lesson in class, or it may be a take home project or used in an after school homework club.

This cat is a cartoon drawing because of its simplicity and exaggerated features like the face and the pose.

If you sketch of the cat about to pounce does not turn out the way you wanted it to do not get discouraged. You are learning and your next picture will be better. A real artist gets frustrated all the time because they know how they want it to look, so it is a good sign, it shows that you are thinking like an artist. Keep drawing every day so you skill will catch up to your talent. I have a lot of drawing lessons on this blog; come back and try a few more each day soon you will be drawing pictures you can be proud of.

Start with a tall oval for the body and below the oval draw a wide circle for the head. Add two ovals for the paws on both sides of the head.

Use guidelines across the center of the face and down the center of the face to keep things even. Draw them lightly since you will want to erase them later.
     * Add the ears on the top of the head.
     * The eyes are below the guideline that is going across the face.
     * The eyes are almond shaped there is a curved line on the top and a curved line on the bottom.
     * The nose is a little below the eyes and on the center guideline; the nose is a triangle pointing down.
     * The eyes are looking sideways so draw the iris on the left half so it will appear as if he is looking left.
     * The pupils are lines going up and down and they are low in the iris so he looks like he is watching the toy mouse.
     * His mouth is shaped like a rounded "W", and there is a line connecting the nose and the mouth.

     * The paws have three curves underneath with lines for the claws.
     * There are elbows on the side of the face they are a bent line.
     * The rear legs are a curving line that follows the bend of the body.
     * There is a circle for the rear paws.
     * The tail is made of two parallel lines it can be straight up or curve like an "S" or a "?" shape.

The toy mouse gives the picture a story.
     * The mouse is a half circle for the body and a straight line below.
     * There are circles for the ears and a curving line for the tail.
     * Draw circles for the wheels.
     * Draw two circles like a figure * for the wind-up key.
