Sneak peek into Cat Drawing

Animal study: drawing cats


Studying cats.

Plunging into a specific topic, like studying an animal, always means getting to know a lot of new aspects and perspectives.  

In my Skillshare Class I am focusing entirely on one animal species: cats. Cats are so gorgeous to look at but so hard to draw, isn’t it? Their postures and their body language are fascinating and elegant. In this course I show you how to learn drawing cats.  

After some cat studies concerning their postures and anatomy, we are analyzing the specific characteristics of some cat breeds and apply all these learning to a Siamese cat drawing in a slightly exaggerated cartoon style. For sure, this class will also be a brilliant occasion for some 3 minute sketches, that you might already know from my sketching class, as this method is so effective for learning the hand the lines based on the concept of the muscle memory.

About the Author

Hallo, I'm an award-winning illustrator and drawing tutor from Austria. After great experiences in the Marketing and Database sector, I finally realised that I simply need to follow my enthusiasm and fascination for drawing and illustrating.  

What fascinates me most, is this way to communicate without using any words. So expressive, so global. And this leads me to my second fascination about drawing: the exchange with others, with you! In my drawing courses I simply love to see the enormous developments of each participant - initiated by exchange and practice. That's what I like to do here, too. 

The idea for this blog comes from the bottom of my heart: to get you close to drawing and to show you that you too can draw #drawinggang  It's all about learning to feel the drawing!
