Cool! It's now time to use our template to draw the character itself. Don't forget to add more details like whiskers, patches inside the ears, small hair near the cheeks and short lines on the paws. A large patch made from a long curved line is also added on the chest of this adorable pet.

For this drawing lesson, I have selected a subtle blue color. The patch located inside the chest is slightly brighter. Patches inside the ears as well as the nose are colored in pink. Both eyes are filled with a deep blue color. Nice work! This cartoon kitten looks amazing!
