  • This step is a bit tricky as you need to draw the details for the back and front sides of the body along with the legs and paws (picture 6). Make sure to erase the rough lines once you are done drawing the body.

  • You have almost completed your drawing as all that are left to work on are the tail and the only eye. Replace the smooth lines of the tail with slightly zigzagged ones so the tail appears bushier and then fill the pupil with black so the eye looks more real.
