Taking the same unfinished image in step 4, we can easily turn the character into an animal by just by adding whiskers!

This body type will work for making a cute character regardless of animal, human, or gender. In this example we've turned the basic character into a cute a female cat and a male mouse.


Draw a Female Cat
In the cartoonist's animal kingdom, females are best recognized by their eyelashes! Just that one small detail is enough to give the viewer a visual 'cue' about gender. Add triangular ears, a thick tail, and some bushy whiskery face hair. Tabby stripes are another good visual cue, or you might like to try the classic Black and White 'Felix the Cat' coloring (be careful it doesn't look like the skunk Pepe Le Pew!)


Draw a Male Mouse
The face is almost identical to the cat's, just without the eyelashes. Draw big round 'Mickey Mouse' style ears, and add a thin mouse tail, and classic gray mouse coloring.
