Complete the Body Draw the outline of the tail, and complete the legs. Lightly indicate the legs on the other side of the cat's body. Add the outline of the ears and position the eye and mouth. Erase any obsolete lines.
Add the Shading and Details
Use back-and-forth strokes to suggest the cat's fur, varying the lights and darks to imply form. Add details to the eye, mouth, nose, ear and paws.
Use the steps you practiced on the cat's body (see page 72) to draw a dachshund. Start with the basic overall structure and then add more features as your drawing progresses. While observing dachshunds for this drawing, I became aware of how short dachshunds really are!
