So I'm sure that a lot of you are familar, or has heard of this animal species before. This animal is another cat that lives in the forest, and it is known or often called the 'dwarf leopard'. Today I will show you how to draw an Ocelot, step by step. The ocelot cat looks very much like a miniature leopard. These wild cats can be found in places like Trinidad, Margarita, Central America, and Mexico. All of the countries I listed are all in South America. The ocelot has also been seen in North America in places like Texas and even in Arizona. What is amazing about these cats is they are as cute as a domestic cat, and have some of the same traits as one as well. They are fairly small in size compared to say a bobcat or lynx. They are a lot more slender and feline as well with weights from anywhere between eighteen and forty pounds. Anyways, I do hope you like this lesson on drawing an ocelot. I will be back in a bit with more drawing fun for you so stay tuned in.
