I guess the first lesson I will submit is the one on "how to draw Longtail", step by step from Warrior Cats. I will sometimes make these characters from time to time when people request them. A lot of members have uploaded their own works of art and lessons on these popular cats from the childrens book that has gotten inside the minds of so many teens and young adults. Longtail is what I would call a gray colored tiger cat that has really dark black stripes. Instead of being a robust cat, Longtail is slender with long legs. He does have a scar on his ear which leaves it looking like someone carved a V from his ear. If you are an avid reader of the books you should know all the 411 on Longtail. Unfortunately I didn't read the series yet, so I don't know too much about this Warrior Cat. I do know that Longtail is very protective and doesn't take a liking to cats that are or where naturally born into a clan. Anyways, I think you will find that Longtail is spruced up a bit to go along with his character description or personality. I hope you like this version of one of the coolest looking Warrior Cats I have drawn to date. Peace out folks and enjoy!
