Animal study: drawing cats
This cat drawing class is available on Skillshare, a great online learning community with over 22.000 classes.
If you aren't yet on Skillshare, you might appreciate a little sneak peek into the structure of my latest class: Animal study - Drawing cats.
I have created you here a little video that is part of my first lesson of this class, focusing on the outlines and characteristics of cats. We are analyzing the characteristics of the cat by starting with basic shapes and outlines, that help us to focus on the main traits without getting distracted by eyes, mouth or fur.
I'd love to keep you updated about new tips, tricks and exercises in my monthly Newsletter. Subscribe here to be part of the drawing gang:
And that's so fascinating about these main characteristics. Only some traits are necessary to make an animal recognizable.
So this is the basic idea of studying cats in a very basic and fundamental way. No details, no eyes, no fur. It's the main shape of the cat, that counts and that learns us a lot about the characteristics of these animals.

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!
