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 front part of the Bengal cat's body. First draw four small marks to indicate the height and width of the circle, then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make mistake. But the circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. If you're having a hard time drawing the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Draw another circle to the right as a guide for the second half of the Bengal cat's body. Draw this circle the same way. Mark the height and the width, then connect the marks using curved lines. Leave a space between the circles. The circle on the right should be a bit smaller than the one on the left.
Step 3: Draw another circle on the top, left side as a guide for the head. Bengals have small heads in relation to their bodies, so don't draw this circle too big. The edges of the two circles should almost touch. If you draw the head too high up, the cat's neck will be too long.
Step 4: Draw a curved, horizontal line across the head to help you add the Bengal cat's facial features later. Add a curved vertical line on the top, left side of the head for another construction line.
Step 5: Draw a small circle on the lower left side of the head as a guide for the muzzle. Pay attention to the size and placement of this small circle in relation to the rest of the Bengal's head.
