By drawing one section at a time, the goal is to finish a drawing of cat ears. This project will have a total of 6 steps. As we draw each section, we’ll get closer to the finished drawing. The last step is to add colour, which will make the drawing something you can be proud of.
Time Needed: 20 minutes
Step 1: Draw The Head
This cat will be peeking up from the bottom of the page, so draw a half circle for the head.
Step 2: Draw the main shapes of the ears.
Cat ears aren’t perfect triangles, so they are rounded on top and have a small bump on each side near the bottom.
Step 3: Give the ears details
Draw curved lines in the shape of the ears to make them stand out more.
Step 4: Add Fluff
Most cats’ ears are pretty fluffy, so give this cat’s ears some fluff.
Step 5: Make a face.
Draw the top half of this cat’s face peeking out from the bottom of the page.
Step 6: Give it colour.
Cat ears get a little bit pinker in the middle, so add a little bit of that when you colour this cat.
Cat ears are so cool!
The three parts of a cat’s ear are the same as those of other mammals: the outer ear, the middle ear, and the inner ear. But there is one thing that makes them stand out from the rest of the group.
The cat’s ears can move separately because they are controlled by two different groups of muscles (the outer ear is controlled by six muscles; while the inner ear is controlled by 12).
This gives cats an advantage when it comes to hearing sounds because they can tell much more accurately than people where a sound is coming from.
Cat ears show how a cat feels.
Cats can show a lot of how they feel through their ears. Their ears come in many different sizes and shapes, which lets them talk in different ways. If you look at your cat’s ears for a while, you can tell how they are feeling. Here are some general signs.
1. The cat’s ear is standing.
If a cat’s ear stands up, it means it is feeling confident or playful. Cats with ears that stand up are usually more aggressive than cats with ears that hang down. Cats with ears that hang down are usually happier and calmer.
2. Straight back ears
When a cat’s ears are straight back, it means it is upset or scared. When this happens, they may also hiss or growl.
3. Ears flattened against head
When a cat’s ears are flattened against its head, it means it feels threatened or is trying to protect itself. When being petted, some cats will also lay their ears flat.
