Garfield is a cat everyone knows. In this drawing tutorial, you’ll learn how easy it is to draw Garfield.
Before we start, have a pencil, piece of paper, and eraser at hand. For the final touches, you may also want to use a softer pencil and some colored pencils or pens.
At the start, draw light lines only. Many of the early lines will be erased in the later drawing steps.

We’ll draw the head first. Remember to leave enough space for the rest of the lazy cat.
In the step-by-step guide below, each step is highlighted in a light blue color.
Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Garfield
Next, let’s do the basic shapes for the left arm, paw, and tip of the tail. Draw two rectangles and a circle for the arm and paw. Also, draw a smaller oval at the bottom for the tail.
We’ll want to add some smooth curves for the body – after all, Garfield is lazy and eats a lot. Draw curvy lines on both sides of the upper body, around the upper arm, and add curves for the elbow. At the top, draw two tilted ovals for the ears. Finally, draw a cross across the paw. The cross shape will help us to draw the toes.
Next, we’ll start adding some details. Draw two curving lines inside the ears. Make the tip of the “index finger” rounded. Add a cross across the face to help to place the facial features later.
Let’s add some more furry textures. Draw sets of curvy lines around the body (don’t forget the tail) and some more curvy lines beside the ears.
