How To Draw A Cheetah

So you want to learn how to draw a cheetah? Well, today’s your day. After my tutorials on drawing a tiger and lion, many of you requested that I do one on how to draw a cheetah. So, let’s get started!

What you’ll need:

To get your cheetah started, you will first need to draw a long, curved oval, with a very small circle that floats to the left, as shown.

The circle, and oval will be the head and body of your cheetah, respectively.

Connect the cheetah’s head to its body, and give it a mouth by drawing a small square on the side of its head.

Next, we can move on to give our cheetah its legs.

As you can see in the image on the left, I’ve drawn the front and rear leg as one shape. We need to draw both legs curved inward slightly, to make it look like the cheetah is running.

Also, make the rear leg about twice the width of the front leg.

Draw in the other two legs that are facing away from the viewer by essentially repeating the previous step. The only difference here, is that these legs should be drawn much closer to each other than the first set of legs.

Give your cheetah a long, slender tail, and a couple rear-facing ears.

Draw in your cheetah’s very small eyes, as well as a slit for the nose and mouth.

At this point, your cheetah is pretty much complete. All that’s left to do is to give him his trademark spots.

As you can see, most of the spots are concentrated near the center of its body, with very few spots on its feet and head.

Darken in the cheetah’s mouth, and around its eyes, and that’s it!
