Step 6: Draw two curved lines to connect the circle to the head to complete the guide for the Persian's body.
Step 7: Draw four lines under the Persian's body as guides for the legs and on on the top right for the tail. Don't draw the lines too long. Bend them to indicate where the joints and feet will be. Add the long curved line on the top right side as a guide for the tail.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 8: Lightly sketch the Persian's eyes inside the head as circles using the lines as guides for placement. Darken the circles when you get the shape and placement right. Add a few lines on the shapes of the circles to shape the outside portion of the eyes. Draw a tiny circle inside each eye, off to the side, to represent glare. Draw a thin oval-like shape in the middle of each eye and shade them in for the slit pupil. Add a few short lines above and below the eyes for the fur around them. Shade in the rest of the eyeball. When you shade the eyeball, use a value that's lighter than the pupil. You can also use a slightly lighter value near the bottom of the eyeball for a rounder look.
Step 9: Draw the nose near the top of the Persian's muzzle by first lightly sketching a triangle. Make the edges of the nose curvier as you darken the lines and make the bottom pointier.
