How To Draw A Werecat

Step 1.

First, draw out some guidelines. These are the foundations of your drawing, so they need to be fairly accurate. Using a mixture of basic shapes and lines gives a slightly fuller version of a stick figure, and helps to plot eveything to come.

Step 2.

Here, I've zoomed into the head area so you can see the detail better. Mark out the outline of the head and ears, using the guidelines to help you. the sides of the face has longer tufts of fur, as with the ears also.

Step 3.

Continuing to look at the head, draw the insides of the ears and the tufts of fur towards the bottom of the head to indicate a hunched shoulder. You can also draw some tufts around where the face will be, to create a more feline look.

Step 4.

Next draw the final details of the face; the eyes, nose, teeth and whiskers as well as some extra tufts on the head. Notice the narrowness of the eyes, the mushroom shape of the nose and how the more prominant tooth's point touches the circular guideline.

Step 5.

Zooming back out, give the werecat more body by drawing in the hunched back, with long tufts of fur that stand up further towards the head. use the curve of the guideline so as not so make it look too hunched, and note how the end of the line is in line with the edge of the circle beneath it.

Step 6.

Another zoomed frme, this time aiming at the central triangle. The left hand edge of the triagle depicts the stomach of the werecat, and the right hand edge, it's arm. The tufts of fur in the bottom right corner is to depict the elbow and the large tufts covering the top corner is the chest. The other line on the right hand side is the far arm and the line across the bottom is the far leg. don't worry if this all seems a little disjointed for now, it'll all come together soon.

Step 7.

Using the bottom of the central triangle and the top ot the right hand triangle, draw in the top of the leg, with tufts at the knee, and curving back to the bottom corner of the right hand triangle. Also, draw in the fur at the base of the spine, curving around the circle, and the underside of the leg, to the back of the knee.

Step 8.

Draw in the rest of the foreground leg, noticing the extreme way in which the leg thins towards the ankle. then holds the same width to the end of the foot. Alos, draw in the far leg. The foot isn't facing the viewer, so you won't be able to see the claws.

Step 9.

Next, draw the tail, curving around the rear leg in an 's' shape. The longer tufts of fur tend to be more on the outer curve of the tail and at the tip.

Step 10.

Hands next. These hands seem to just be loosely hanging down, so they curve naturally towards the werecat. Make sure you get the thumb on the right side! In the foreground hand, the most prominant finger is the little finger, with the tumb on the far side, and in the background hand, the thumb is closest to us and the first (pointer) finger is prominant .

Step 11.

Finally, draw in the shoulder and top of the front arm. You can also extra tufts of fur, as long as you dont go too over the top. I have done a line of stood up fur where the spine would be, but you can experiment with whatever you think looks right in your mind.

Step 12.

Okay, that's it! Hope you found this useful. The idea for the stance of this drawing is from Bryan Vieira's Hulk illustrations. Please comment, I'd love to know your opinion!

Okay I got this request from Demon on Chat, and I'd just like to say sorry it took so long. Hope it's worth it! How to draw a werecat (like a werewolf but a cat). Also someone was saying ( do not recall who) that it was hard to see the detail when zoomed out, so some of these frames are zoomed in on a specific point.
