How to Draw a Halloween Cat with a Pumpkin Step by Step

1. Begin by using a mechanical pencil to draw three circles as the basic shapes.
2. Draw the cat's head and ears above the first circle using a darker mechanical pencil.
3. Above the second circle, sketch the cat's body and tail.
4. Draw a pumpkin on top of the last circle.
5. Erase the basic shapes you drew with the mechanical pencil using an eraser.
6. Start adding details such as the eyes, fur, ears, and mouth to the cat. Don't forget to add spooky features to the pumpkin, as it's Halloween-themed.
7. After detailing, go over the lines with a 1mm fineliner pen to make them darker.
8. Erase any unnecessary pencil lines that may still be visible.
9. Now, let's move on to coloring.
10. Color the cat's body with pastel yellow.
11. Use steel grey for the fur.
12. Apply blood orange for the pumpkin, the cat's pumpkin hat, eyes, and falling leaves.
13. Use a fineliner pen to color the eyes.
14. Add Orchid Violet and lavender pink to color the inside of the cat's ears.
15. Apply cedar brown for the stem, pumpkin's eyes, and mouth.
16. Use mustard yellow to color the cat's pupils.
17. To make your drawing pop, add shadows by layering with steel grey.
18. Congratulations, you've completed it!
