Animal Study: Drawing Cats
Plunging into a specific topic, like studying an animal, always means getting to know a lot of new aspects and perspectives.
In my new 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.
At the end of this 40-min class you will be able to sketch a cat in typical poses and define characteristics of different cat breeds, by deducting their specific traits such as the fur style or the body shape.
