Step 20: Use the line at the bottom as a guide to draw the Scottish fold's first hind leg. Draw the toes on the left side using short, curved lines. Add a few strokes at the top for the body's fur overlapping. Using a curved line to the right of the front leg, draw the cat's other hind leg peeking out from behind.

Step 21: For a cleaner look, erase as much as you can of the initial guide lines. Don't worry about erasing all of the guides. It's okay to leave some behind. Re-draw any final sketch lines you may have accidentally erased.

Final Step: Add some shading to your Scottish fold drawing to give it more dimension and volume. Pick the direction of the light source when shading so that the shadows are consistent with it. You can stop after this step for an all- white Scottish fold or continue with the following steps for coat pattern.

Add a cast shadow underneath. This helps ground the cat so it doesn't appear to be floating.

You can add even more value throughout your drawing for extra detail. Scottish fold cats can have a variety of coat patterns, so you can shade yours however you'd like! For a classic tabby cat look, add some stripes above the eyes. Use alternating dark and light values. Vary the pressure on your pencil to get different degrees of tonal value. Leave the cat's muzzle blank. As you shade the body, use strokes that go in the general direction of the fur. Use a slightly darker value to add a series of stripes throughout the body. You can also shade the cat's entire body with a medium value for an easier drawing. Leave the chest blank.

If you have a pet Scottish fold or a similar breed, try to duplicate its coat on your drawing. Shading can be time-consuming, so be patient and take breaks. Continue shading until the cat's entire body is covered. Don't shade too smoothly. The rough value gives the coat a furry texture. Remember to pause the video to draw at your own pace..
