Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Persian Cat" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle as a guide for the Persian cat's head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Inside the circle, draw two intersecting lines. These lines will help you place the Persian cat's facial features later.
Step 3: Draw a smaller circle inside the bottom half of the Persian cat's head as a guide for the muzzle.
Step 4: On top of the Persian cat's head, draw two small arcs similar to triangles as guides for the ears.
Step 5: Draw another circle on the right side as a guide for the back portion of the Persian's body. This circle should be almost twice as big as the first circle. Don't draw this circle too far away, otherwise the cat's body will be too long.
