Here is another baby animal that I said I was going to submit, and no you have never seen this one before. Up next, we will have fun as we learn "how to draw a baby cheetah", step by step. These adorable big cats are one of my favorite species to date. The inspiration to make a baby cheetah came from both my little sister, and from the movie that we watched again, Duma. If you have watched the movie Duma, you will understand why I drew this kitten. A boy finds a cheetah cub on the side of the road after its mother was killed. He and his father take the orphan in, and bring it up as they nurse the little guy to health, and adulthood. There is a lot more to the film, and it’s really a heart touching story. I had a lot of fun drawing the baby cheetah live, and now you too can teach yourself how to make one to add to your baby animal collection. I wanted to keep the concept simple, so what you see is what you get. Wither way you should be able to have fun at the same time as drawing a baby cheetah. So go ahead and get busy and I will prepare my next tutorial. Peace out people and make sure to rate, comment or both.

Next, begin drawing out the eyes as you use the facial guidelines you made in step one. The tops of the eyes should be dark, and the pupils should be colored in as they blend with the upper lid. Make the dark crying lines that stream from the inner part of the eyes, and flow down the sides of the nose. Next, draw in the nose and mouth and then sketch in some inner ear detailing.
