Well howdy everyone I am back with another drawing tutorial for you all and this time the character I will be showing you how to draw is loved by all and adored by many. Today you will learn "how to draw Tom" the cat from the animated cartoon series Tom and Jerry. Tom is a rebel of a cat that lives life his way. He is often seen living with a large woman that is very strict with Tom. She doesn't take no crap from him and she lets him know it. I love Tom and his crazy antics. He is always trying to figure out a way to capture a mouse named Jerry. The only problem with Toms traps, ideas, and plans, is Jerry almost always seems to out do Tom in some way that leaves him hurting from the very traps he tries to catch Jerry with. I mean of course he is successful sometimes when one of his concoctions work, but other than that it never really looks to good for Tom. The only time I feel bad for him is when he gets kicked out for something Jerry did to make the Mrs come out to see what all the ruckus is. Or when Jerry starts bothering Tom while he is asleep beside his bowl of milk. Tom is a cute laid back cat that likes what every other cat enjoys, sleeping, eating, milk, birds, and chasing mice. Tom is a Russian blue cat with white paws and a white belly and he loves living a pampered life. He is also a very funny feline that was created back in 1940 by two fellas named William Hanna and Joseph Barbera for a company named Metro Goldwyn Mayer. The cartoon duo now airs on Cartoon Network and they still carry a strong audience. Learning "how to draw Tom and Jerry
