Use a pencil most of the time so you can erase your mistakes. Keep on practicing, you’ll get better and better the more you do so. Coloring your picture always makes it look better. Markers and colored pencils really make things look nice.
..so do slender crayons. Try shading after you finish. When doing the sketch, do it lightly so the marks don’t stay. You could always go over the lines later. If you don’t have the same colors, don’t worry.
Any colors can work. Even purple!

There are many variations of cartoon cats. Tom and Butch from Tom and Jerry, Snowball I, II, and III from the Simpsons, and many others. As you can tell, the styles of them both are very different. This step-by-step guide will show you how to draw a cartoon cat. Let’s begin!

Try multiple versions of the cat. Draw one with the same eye size as usual, then another making them smaller, or bigger, or a different shape. Play with it until you find something you think looks good and you like.
You could even try to move the eye placement a little bit, making them closer or farther apart. Keep practicing and you’ll get the affect you want eventually.
You could use anything! I would suggest either watercolors, colored pencils, or crayons.

Draw another, slightly smaller, circle to the right and below and connect it to the first circle with an arc.
