Color your cat as you wish. Put patterns into its fur, like spots or stripes, and add even more features if you want. For this part you can let your imagination run wild, or you can use the reference if you’re not feeling too creative.
I haven’t done any anime animals lately so here is one that was suggested by a member. It’s on “how to draw a cute anime cat”, step by step. One of the things I really like about this cat is the small nose and expression on the face. I can truly say that it’s more of a traditional version anime cat unlike some of the other ones I made in the past. The black colored coat with the hints of grey for lighting makes this kitty shimmer on the page. If you are a fan of drawing anime animals, you will definitely enjoy drawing a cute anime cat. I have to get my other lessons prepared for submission so stay tuned in to see what they will be on. Adios amigos!
Step 1. Begin by making two shapes, one for the head and the other for the body. You will then add the facial guideline.
Step 4. Start drawing the body by sketching out a very fluffy neck line and chest. Draw the front parts of the legs, then add some lining to form the rest of the chest.
Add the tail and paws. Make a curved shape for the tail, connecting at the lower left end part of the “teardrop” body. Draw circles around the end of the oval front legs for the paws (only two for the front legs)
Step 8. Here is what your anime cat looks like when you are all done. Now you can color it in any shade you like.
Draw a circle for the head. It doesn’t have to be perfectly shaped; this is just the initial sketch. Draw a“teardrop” shape because the head will cover it–just end where the neck of the cat is.

Step 3. Using the facial guideline you will draw out the large doe like eyes. Color in the eyes like you see here leaving behind some areas of white. Draw the small nose and mouth like so, then add the cute whiskers. You will then add the lining to detail or define the anime cat’s ears.

I have trouble with this too. Making it completely round isn’t the answer, because it will be harder to design and it takes too much time. Put a slight curve at the top of the head instead, and then make the head slightly fatter.
If you aren’t doing chibi style, then you wouldn’t even try to make it round.

Add the legs. Make two oval shapes in the right side of the “teardrop” body shape (follow the tutorial’s illustration if you have problems positioning the legs). These will be the two front legs. Then draw two circles, one next to the left front leg and the other between the two front legs.
The only visible parts of the back two legs will be the paws, which is why we’re only putting circles there and not full-on ovals.
Step 5. Finish the front legs and draw out the small anime cat paws. Add the toe lines, then draw in more hair on the elbows.
Anime refers to animated shows/movies, while manga is the comic/drawn version. To make an animation in this style would be anime, and it would require all the usual skills used for animation.
It’s hard to draw something exactly the same as another person, especially if you are not an experienced and skilled artist. The more you practice, the closer you will get.

This is a simple anime drawing, so if you want to expand your horizons further you should first master this and then go on to drawing humans and complete scenes. Practice makes perfect, and the more you practice the basics, the better your complex drawings will be.
What is the difference between anime and manga, and how do I make animations using them?

Step 2. Using the first circle, you can start sketching out the shape of the head, as well as the long hair for the cheeks. Draw in the wide shaped triangular ears, as well as the tuft on the top of this kitty’s head.
Kittens are adorable all by themselves, but drawing them anime style makes them even better. If you want to learn to draw one for yourself, follow this tutorial.
Step 6. Here all you have to do is draw the back, butt, and hind leg for the cat followed by the back paw and some of the tail. The tail is going to be bushy, but you can go with any hair length you like.

Carefully outline the sketch. Erase the sketch lines. Finish the eyes by adding a black circle inside each iris circle (this is the pupil) and two or three smaller white circles depicting the highlights of the eyes.
Add more details like whiskers, small fangs, fine lines inside the ears (for ear fluff) and small “toes” for the paws.
You can follow the instructions in the article and then give it magical features, like wings or special designs.

Sketch the facial features. Make guidelines, one vertical for positioning the nose and mouth, and one horizontal for positioning the eyes. Then sketch large, roundish eyes with a smaller circle for the iris, a small, triangular nose and a wide mouth.
With this step you are finished sketching. Keep in mind that anime features are exaggerated compared to real ones, so all expressive elements (i.e. mouth and eyes) should be bigger/more emotionally charged than usual.
Step 7. Finish sketching out the frizzy looking tail like so, then begin erasing your mistakes.
