Step 10: Draw the caracal's mouth below the nose as a line that splits into two. Use the sides of the small circle as guides to draw the sides of the muzzle. Draw a small arc under it using quick, short strokes for the fuzzy chin. Draw a few squiggly lines inside the sides of the caracal's muzzle for extra detail.
Step 11: Use the arcs on the head as guides to draw the caracal's trademark ears. Follow the path of the guide to draw the ears and draw a few lines inside for the fur. Add the long tuft of fur at the tip of each ear using quick, long strokes.
Step 12: Use the original circle as a guide to draw the rest of the caracal's head. The lower part of the head shouldn't be so close to the bottom of the main circle. Draw a few lines inside the head using quick, short strokes for extra detail.
Step 13: Now learn how to draw the caracal's front legs using the lines on the left as guides. Lightly sketch out the shape of the caracal's first leg as you follow the path of the line. When you get the structure right, darken the lines. Draw a few curved lines in front of the paw for the toes. Draw the caracal's leg on the other side by using the other line as a guide. Sketch lightly at first and darken the lines when you get the shape right. Draw the toes at the bottom.
Step 14: Now learn how to draw the caracal's hind legs using the other lines as guides. Remember to sketch lightly at first as you follow the path of the line and only darken once you get the structure right. The top of the caracal's hind leg should be thicker than the top of the front leg. Use the other line as a guide to draw the hind leg on the other side using the same technique. Caracals are good jumpers, so draw their legs long and lean.
