Drawing Tutorial

Let’s draw the whiskers. Let’s take a very sharp black with a very sharp point and then use very little pressure and move the pencil very fast. Let’s draw on the right side these black whiskers. Draw as a bow downwards like this with very little pressure, and then one and another one, and another one, and then here another one, and one that is a bit crossing.

Enhancing Whiskers

On the left side, we have white whiskers but also black ones. Let’s draw here in the middle a black one a little bit here.

Go over again with some little hairs and then do it again with less pressure and rotate the pencils a bit, so now it’s much better.
