How to Draw a Cartoon Margay - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Draw a curved "V" with a rounded bottom. Draw a tiny triangle for the nose at the bottom and a small curved line below that for the mouth.
Step 2: Draw two small pointy ears on either side on the top of the head and connect it with a curved line in between. Now draw two thin “V” shaped lines by each ear in the middle for detail.
Step 3: Draw two small circles for eyes and then fill them in and add in a hollow almond-shape around them.
Step 4: Draw tiny whiskers fanning out from either side of the nose.
Step 5: Draw a curved line behind the head, curving at a right angle and going down. Draw another curved line below the mouth. Make this one smaller and less curved.
Step 6: Now we draw the legs. Draw a loop going down from the middle of the body and draw grooves for the fingers at the end. Now draw a curved loop below the front of the body, and draw fingers at the end. Now draw the hind legs by drawing a vertical semi-circular curved line below the back of the body and draw a horizontal loop below that. Draw grooves for fingers. Connect all legs together by a curved line.
Step 7: Draw the tail by drawing a diagonally curved loop which is slightly pointed at the end arising from below the hind legs.
Step 8: Draw diagonal patterns on the tail and several hollow circles all over the body for detail.
