Some may recognize this cat breed from the movie 'Austin Powers' when Dr. Evil reintroduces his cat Mr. Bigglesworth to everyone. The difference with Mr. Bigglesworth this time, is he has no hair because all of his hair fell out while he and Dr. Evil was cryogenically frozen. Upon defrosting, the poor kitty lost all of its hair. As you know that story is totally false because there are cats that are born hairless, or so they seem to be. The feline that you will be getting a lesson on today, has lots of wrinkles, folds and creases. Up next, you will learn "how to draw a Sphynx cat", step by step. Even though you may think that the Sphynx cat is very popular breed, the truth is, they are also a rare breed. These cats began their journey back in 1966 in a place called Roncesvalles Toronto which is an area in the Canadian province. To get these cats to where they are today took a lot of hard work and determination. Yes they do look like that have no hair on their bodies, but the fact is they do have a coat no matter how faint it may be. The Sphynx are covered in vellus hair which is very short, fine, and light in color. This is what makes them appear to be hairless. These energetic cats are also very affectionate, loving and very intelligent. Because they have very fine hair, they like to cuddle up to people and objects that have heat. They also like sleeping under the covers with their owners as well as other pets. Anyways, I did submit a tutorial showing you how I colored this cat, so you should get a good idea on how to color yours. That's all for now guys, have fun and be sure to rate, comment or both.
