About This Class


Learn how to create Majestic Creatures! This time around, How to Draw Cats

This Class is suited for any level of Drawing, either if you want to up your Character and Creature Design skills or to learn some of the basics.

We'll be covering a lot of the principles of Drawing, from Sketching, to Inking to Coloring.


For the Class you'll need either a Pencil + Piece of Paper or a Drawing Tablet + Drawing Software of your choice!

I'll be using Manga Studio with my drawing tablet but you're free to use whatever you feel more used to since the important thing to do here is just practice.

I want you to have fun drawing Cats so I'll be splitting the class in several shorter videos and I want you to improve by creating! Not just watching how to draw cats.


At the end of this class you'll be able to create ANY Cat you want in whatever pose you want, we'll be covering a few breeds and 3 Main poses for each:

  • How to Draw a Persian Cat
  • How to Draw a Bombay Cat
  • How to Draw a Sphynx Cat

You'll learn how to Draw Cats in several views, starting with the Side View, and then the Front and Back view. This will give you a good understanding of the general shapes and the 3D creature design, so you'll know better how to draw a Cat.

Can't wait to see you in Class!

This is so cute and helpful. Tho not required, im glad so see a skillshare teacher use clip studio paint - everyone uses photoshop but its so expensive. Nice to show how you can do quality art with a cheaper program.
This is indeed helpful! :) Thanks for this class, Patricia! I am currently writing and will soon illustrate my very first children's picture book and its characters are... cats.
