Steps To Draw A Cheetah
The cheetah is also called a large cat. It is the fastest land animal, and as such has several adaptations for speed, including a light build, long thin legs and a long tail.
The cheetah lives in three main social groups, females and their cubs, male “coalitions” and solitary males. The cheetah is active mainly during the day, with peaks during dawn and dusk.
Cheetahs are the fastest land animals on earth. A cheetah has slim long, muscular legs and a slender body. Its head is small and rounded. A cheetah also has a flexible spine, deep chest, and special pads on its feet for traction.
Cheetahs produce a variety of sounds including growls, purrs that generally denote contentment, chirps (between a mother and her cubs), and an “explosive yelp” heard by humans from 2 km (1.24 mi.) away.
A cheetah is a wild carnivorous animal. The cheetah is the largest animal of the cat species. Yellow and black spots are made on their whole body. Cheetahs hunt only during the day, their ability to see at night is less. A female cheetah gives birth to 3 to 8 babies at a time. The average lifespan of a cheetah is 25 years.
Follow the steps below to easily draw a cheetah step by step.
We are starting by drawing a circle at the top and drawing a line at the downside of the circle and curving it a litter bit as in the drawing below, again drawing a curved line at the right side for the cheetah’s body. ( Roughly )
Now add four legs on the right side and left side as shown in the drawing below. ( Roughly )
Then, here we go to start to draw the cheetah, first of all, draw the head of the cheetah as in the drawing and at the top draw a cute hair and draw according to the image below, and don’t forget to draw in the same circle and sketch lightly at first so that it’s easy to erase if you make a mistake. ( Fairly )
Similarly, now draw the body part of the cheetah as in the curve line which we have drawn in step 1, first of all, draw spiky lines for the furry chest of the cheetah and curve a bit as shown in the drawing and for the upper part of the back, curve it according to in the drawing and add a tail facing upwards. ( Fairly )
Then, now for the backside of the legs, draw a quadriceps (hind legs) of the cheetah and curve it to draw foot and draw claws of the cheetah and repeat the steps for drawing another leg, draw according to the image. ( Fairly )
Again, now for the front legs, draw a short cylindrical shape, at the bottom draw two curved lines for the toes (claws), for the other leg repeat the same steps as a draw (claws and foot), but it should be one leg up, draw as shown in the drawing below. ( Fairly )
Similarly, draw two (n) like shapes for the ear of the cheetah, and inside the ear draw another (n) as drawn below. ( Fairly )
Now, erase the rough lines which we have drawn in earlier steps (Step 1 & 2).
Similarly, now for the face part, draw two eyes and under each curved line(eye) draw a small circle for the irises, and in the middle of each iris, draw a tiny circle and shade it in for the pupils. Again on the side of each pupil, draw two tiny circles for highlights. Above each eye, draw a short, curved line for the eyebrows. After that draw an oval below the eyes for drawing the nose, and colour it black. After that below the nose draw a (u) letter for the mouth and draw according to it.
Then, now draw an ear hair in both ears. And in the face draw a series of small circles, ovals, points, all over the head and colour it black for the cheetah spots as in the drawing.
Lastly, in the body of the cheetah draw a series of small circles, ovals, points, all over (repeat Step 10) and colour it black and at the end of the tail draw a bit longer for the cheetah spots as in the drawing.
Colouring a Cheetah
After the drawing of the cheetah is completed we move forward with colouring the cheetah. For colouring, we had chosen some basic colours. You can fill colour according to our wish too.
Final Image of Cheetah
After colouring, we get a beautiful cheetah. You can use a pencil colour(We made it digital).
Finally, we draw a cute cheetah and colour it beautifully. I hope you find our tutorial easy.
