Sketch a Cat in Ink
Ink is the perfect medium for a simple, elegant sketch of a cat. Zen - like simplicity can be used to capture the beauty of your cat in just a few strokes.

Sketching Cats in Pencil
Use a carpenter's pencil with side shading or try chalk or charcoal - is a good way to create broad forms with simple, fast strokes.

Draw a Cat in Two Simple Steps
When you are able to hold the cat's attention for a while, or drawing from a photograph, you can take a little longer to develop some surface detail. As always though we'll begin with a light structural drawing, observing the main forms then adding a simplified contour.

Draw a Cat - Step 2
Adding the fur with casual, short strokes. Look for the longer areas of fur and the darker, shadowed areas. With a linear sketch like this, the increased mark-making used to create textures also suggests shadow, so you look for the darker areas - shadows under a ruff, or dark markings - to use it more freely. On lighter toned areas, use texture more sparingly. Don't be afraid to use broken line too.

Drawing Outlined Bricks and Mortar
Drawing Outlined Brick and Mortar pattern. To create the look of bricks and mortar, you'll need to draw each brick separately. Use the linear brick design as a guide for drawing your brick pattern in more detail. I prefer to draw them freehand, drawing the outline of each brick just fractionally away from the guidelines to create the brick-and-mortar pattern.

Finished Outlined Bricks
The competed bricks-and-mortar wall. For a crisper finish you might want to trace your drawing onto a fresh sheet. For a more subtle result, use the eraser to soften detail and add some texture with pencil.

Hatched and Shaded Bricks in Perspective

Cartoon or Informal Brick Wall

Sketching Tips - How to Draw Eyes
Improve your eye drawing by following this detailed tutorial exploring eye anatomy, proportion and drawing techniques.

Anatomy of The Eye Socket
Consider the anatomy of the face and eye when you draw the eyes. The eye socket forms an underlying structure that must be considered when drawing.

Observing the Eye in Detail
Observe the eye in closeup to create a realistic and detailed drawing. The degree of realism that you obtain is really dependant upon your attention to detail, and a sharp pencil and patience.

The Shape of the Eyes
The shape of the lids changes as the eye moves. We tend to think of the eyes as being mirror images of each other, but when gazing to one side, they can look very different.

Observing and Drawing Expression
Expressions can drastically alter the shape of the eye. Pay attention to the lines and wrinkles around the eye, not just the lids themselves, otherwise the eyes will just look mis-shapen.

Drawing the Contour or Outline
Getting started with your drawing - beginning with an outline.... start near the top of the fruit, and draw the outline, following with your eyes slowly along the outside of the shape. Don't worry about erasing mistakes at this stage - just redraw the line you want or keep going.

Begin Shading
Now begin shading. Note where the light shines giving a highlight - avoid this area - and shade the mid tones and the darkest shadow areas. Sometimes I'll shade over an area and use the eraser to create the highlights.

Cross-Contour Shading
When you're shading with a pencil, it's natural for your hand to make a curved line. You can prevent this by moving your whole arm or by learning to correct the shape of the line by consciously correcting it with your hand as you draw.

Shading Shadows and Lifting Highlights
Continue to build the tone up over the whole shape, lightly bringing the tone up to the lighter areas. A kneadable eraser can be used to lift out highlights with a 'dabbing' motion. If you erase too much, you can shade back over it. I don't usually use white plastic erasers for a drawing with this much shading, as it smudges easily.

The tricky part when line drawing is to decide when to use a solid line to describe a change of plane, and when to use an implied line. In this example, you can see that the decision to use a line to describe the change of plane along the side of the nose doesn't really work.

Contour Drawing with Implied Line
