How to Draw a Siamese Cat

by Lauren Holman

This will get you on the way to being a great drawer!


  • Pencil
  • White paper (Whichever size you want)
  • Eraser (If needed)
  • Sharpener (If needed)
  • Coloured pencils (If you wish to colour in)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Draw an oval with a curvy point at the bottom. Try to draw it a third down the bottom of the page. This will be its face.

    Step 2

    On the curved side at the top of the oval, draw a triangle. Make it so that the sides curve into a point. Do the same on the opposite side of the oval so that it looks symmetrical.

    Step 3

    At the bottom sides of the oval, draw half a centimetre slightly diagonal line going outwards. This will be the neck.

    Step 4

    At the bottom of the neck line on both sides, draw a curve that goes into a slightly diagonal line going inwards. Half a centimetre inwards draw a line going up to make a skinny arm.

    Step 5

    Once you do that on the end of the lines draw three small circles that fit to make paws. Do the exact same on the other side. This will be the arms and paws.

    Step 6

    Halfway down the arm on both sides, draw a curve going out and pull them slightly inwards to look like the cat's legs when it is sitting. On the end draw a horizontal oval to make the foot.

    Step 7

    To make the cat's stomach draw a line that droops slightly next to the paws.

    Step 8

    On the top left corner of the leg, draw a line that curves slightly into a four centimetre long curved line. Curve half a centimetre across and then draw a curved line going back down to the leg.

    Step 9

    On both sides 1 centimetre down the face draw a line sloping inwards. Draw a connecting line one centimetre down; then across and up meeting the top line. Draw ovals with pointed ends inside the eye

    Step 10

    Now for the nose. Three centimetres down the middle of the face, lightly draw a small triangle. Below it draw two tiny lines curving slightly down next to each other.

    Step 11

    For the mouth, draw a light line half a centimetre down the two curved lines. At the bottom of the line, draw a little smile.

    Step 12

    For detail, halfway down the eyes draw scribbly lines to the edge of both sides. At the side of the eye do the same going around the eye until reaching the top middle corner.

    Step 13

    Draw curvy lines separating half of all four legs and tail. Could in the bottom halfs with a moderately dark brown. Do the same for the forehead and ears. Colour the eyris blue.

    Step 14

    Congratulations! You have drawn your very own Siamese Cat!
