Step 10: In the middle of each eye, draw a thin, slit-like shape for the Himalayan cat's pupils. The shapes should be similar to ovals with pointed ends. You can also draw circles for dilated pupils. Next to each pupil, draw two tiny circles to represent highlights. Use a very light value to shade the inside of the cat's eyes but don't overlap the tiny highlight circles. Leave the bottom of the eye mostly blank to emphasize the roundness of the eyeball and the light-colored iris. Draw a series of short strokes around the edge of the eyes for a bit of fur and structure. Extend the inner corners of the eye shapes downward so that they point to the cat's muzzle.
Step 11: Inside the muzzle, near the top, lightly sketch a small triangle for the Himalayan's nose. When you get the size and position right, darken the shape. Curve the left side inward to create the nostril. Make the bottom thin and pointy and draw a short line in the middle. At the top, draw a series of short strokes that lead to the cat's eyes for the bridge of the nose.
Step 12: Under the nose, draw a line that curves to the left for the first half of the cat's mouth. Use a series of short strokes to create this line. The line should end on the edge of the initial circle. To the right, draw a shorter line that's also made up of short strokes for the other side of the mouth. Draw a curved line that's made up of short strokes under the mouth for the chin. Follow the path of the initial circle. Above the mouth, draw a series of short strokes for the furry detail on the muzzle.
Step 13: Darken the shape on the top, left to create the ear. Use short strokes at the top for the pointy, furry tip. Draw a series of short strokes along the bottom of the shape for the fur at the base of the Himalayan cat's ear. Use the shape on the right as a guide to draw the other ear the same way. Make this ear a bit smaller.
Step 14: Darken the top part of the big initial circle using short strokes but make the shape flatter for the cat's head. Follow the basic curvature of the circle on the left side and draw short strokes for the side of the head. Make the side of the head wider than the initial circle. Draw the bottom part of the Himalayan cat's head higher than the circle too. Follow the right side of the initial circle more closely to create the other side of the head.
