Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Marie from Walt Disney's The Aristocats. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching. For a simpler version of this sketch, just draw Marie’s head.
Step 1: Start by drawing a circle near the right side of the page to leave room for Marie's body. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for Marie the cat’s head.
Step 2: Next draw a vertical line and a horizontal line that intersect inside the circle. Bend them so they follow the contour of the sphere. These will be construction guides that will help you place Marie's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two small circles as guides for Marie’s eyes. Draw these circles so they sit on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical line.
Step 4: Draw two angled lines on top of the circle as guides for Marie's ears. The lines are similar to triangles without the bottom part.
Step 5: Draw an oval on the lower left side of the head as a guide for Marie the kitten's body. Notice that the line begins on the left side of the horizontal construction line and ends at the bottom of the vertical construction line.
