Step 6: Under the first circle, draw two long, vertical lines as guides for the wildcat's front legs. The line on the left should slope to the lower, left side a bit. Bend the lines at the bottom for the feet. Draw two long, angled lines under the second circle as guides for the cat's hind legs. The line on the right should slope to the right in the middle and then bend down to indicate the joints. The line on the left should slope to the left at the bottom.
Step 7: Draw two short lines that connect the circles on the left as a guide for the neck. Connect the circles in the middle using two long lines to complete the guide for the wildcat's torso. On the right side, draw a long curved line as a guide for the cat's tail.
That's it for the guides! From this point on, press harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing.
Step 8: Inside the head, lightly sketch two small circles for the eyes. Use the initial lines as guides for the size and placement of the cat's eyes. When you get the size and position right, darken the lines but make the sides pointier for the corners of the eyes.
Step 9: Inside each eye, near the middle, draw a thin, slit-like shape for the wildcat's pupils. On the sides of each pupil, draw a two tiny circles for highlights. On the inner sides of the eyes, draw a couple of short, angled lines for the corners of the eyes. Lightly shade the tops of the eyeballs to make the shapes rounders. Use a value that's lighter than the pupils and don't overlap the tiny highlight circles as you shade. Add a few short strokes above the eyes for fur.
