The Lynx Rufus or to everyone else this animal is known as the Bobcat. These mammals are part of the big cat family. They are indeed to the word carnivores. Although they are not as big as a leopard or tiger the Bobcat definitely resembles a mixture of the two. They weigh from 11- 30 pounds, from head to tail they are about 26 to 50 inches, and can live up to 12 years of age. The habitats in which these wildcats reside are basically all over the U.S. with a greater population to the Northern parts of America. So why is it that I’ve never seen one? Well maybe because they are nocturnal and elusive, which means they are rarely spotted by people. This is a funny looking cat because in the face it looks like a house cat, but then the body is twice as big, they have long limbs, big paws, and the ears are big, pointy, and have long scattered pieces of hair. They get their name from there short black tail that looks like it’s been cut or “bobbed”. The bobcat is still hunted for their soft fur and the number of them that exists is about one million, and that’s just in the United States. This tutorial will show you how to draw a bobcat with only 6 steps. The instructions are super simple even kids can learn how do draw this over grown housecat. I had a good time sketching him out. I dig it when an image has a lot of details because it gives me more practice to draw. I am a big animal lover so I have a lot of National Geographic books in my house. I pick threw the pages and draw animals that I like. Have fun with this one it came out awesome.

Star sketching out the bobcats fur by lightly pressing down on your sketch pencil. The fur is suppose to be light and airy but also compact at the same time. While your sketching out the fur draw two half moon shapes on both sides of the cats nose for the puff pockets of the jowls.

Adding more fur detail in this step. When sketching out the fur on the bobcat put the fur in layers. Define the nose a bit more and put eyeballs in the eye sockets of the cat. Sketch the lower part of the cats forearm as it is resting on the grown.

STEP 6.

Again continue to keep on sketching in the cats fur until it looks nice and full with a good flow going on. Be sure to add the definition like fat pockets on the arms and chest. Now move up the picture and start adding the whiskers to each individual hole on the bobcats face. Define the face some more and give the cat some pupils. At this point you can start erasing guide lines and dirty pencil lines on your sheet. When your satisfied with your sketch you can darken it by pressing a little harder on the paper with your pencil. You can add your shadowing and spotting at that point.
