Before you learn how to draw Garfield, did you know?

This chubby, lazy, eccentric and cynical cat is the hero of a popular comic strip. He doesn’t do much during the day apart from eating, sleeping, and acting as a moron. Garfield is in love with coffee, the classic Italian lasagna, and hates pretty much everything else.

He came to life in 1978, and because of his business-threatening appetite, his owner had no other choice but to sell him to a local pet shop. A man named Jon took him in and became his favorite owner. Garfield didn’t change a bit and kept on wreaking havoc.

Some Things To Keep In Mind…

These tutorials are only here to guide you. Your drawing does not need to look "identical" to mine.

Start with rough but light pencil strokes that you can work into the shapes you want.

Once you have your rough drawing completed, go over it in a darker stroke for your final drawing.

Add shading and/or color to complete if desired.

Using this technique you will be able to draw anything after some practice... even without following step-by-step tutorials.
