I have some more baby animals on the way before I get into the good stuff. This first lesson is going to be what you call very adorable. I must warn you, if you have a problem with cuteness you might want to walk away right now because I’m about to show you all "how to draw baby kittens", step by step. I know what you are going to say, kittens are babies and you're one hundred percent right. These two baby tutorials are dedicated to my eight year old sister who wanted me to be specific when I drew the kittens. I told her that kittens are babies, and she said “yeah I know, but their baby kittens”. Besides, I know there is people that search for kitten tutorials by typing in the phrase ‘baby kittens’. The brown tiger colored cat is supposed to be a Maine Coon kitten. Maine Coon cats are very large, and they grow to be the size of a small dog. The orange colored kitten is supposed to be a replica of how our cat looked when he was a kitten. The great thing about this tutorial is how you can make your baby kittens look like anything you want. Not all cats have stripes; some are solid colors, while others have a mixture of colors. Anyways, have fun drawing baby kittens and I will prepare my other tutorial for you all. Adios amigos and enjoy!

STEP 1.

Since you are drawing two cats, you will need to do double the work. Make two circles like so, and then draw in the face guides as well.

STEP 2.

We will work on one baby kitten at a time to make things less confusing. To begin, sketch out the actual shape of the kitten's head using a stroke that adds fluff to the lining. Draw in the ears and then move to step three.

STEP 3.

The kitten to the left is the Maine Coon one which means the head is going to be slightly bigger than the first one you just drew. Repeat the same process as you did in step one, but make the face a little more fluffier. Draw the ears and add some of the detailing to them as well.

Once that is done you can draw he noses, as well as the mouths, and then draw in the whiskers. Sketch some detailing on or around the ears, and then you are ready to move onto step five.
