Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two curved lines next to each other for this cute chibi cheetah's eyes. The lines should look like the letter C on its side. Make the lines thick and dark. Don't place the eyes too close together. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shape and position of the eyes right, darken the lines. The eye on the right should be a bit smaller because this cartoon cat's head will be turned slightly.
Step 2: Under each curved line, draw a small circle for the irises. The circle on the right should be closer to the left edge of the cheetah's eye than the circle on the left.
Step 3: In the middle of each iris, draw a tiny circle and shade it in for the pupils. Don't make the chibi cheetah's pupils too big. Leave big area between the pupils and the edge of the irises. On the sides of each pupil, draw two tiny circles for highlights. You can also just draw one highlight circle on the side of each pupil if you don't have enough room. Above each eye, draw a short, curved, horizontal line for the cat's eyebrows.
Step 4: Below the eyes, off to the right, draw a small triangle for the cartoon cheetah's nose. Shade the inside of the nose except for a thin sliver at the top that represents shine.
Step 5: Below the nose, draw a wavy line that's similar to a wide letter W for the cheetah's mouth. Below the nose, draw a few short lines for the furry chin.
