    What i find best is to draw the inner features first, then go outward, otherwise you end up with a squished face. There is only a limited amount you can learn about drawing if someone tells you how. It all depends on your perception of form: if you see and think of things as flat they will be flat. Etc etc. I advise going to youtube and watching markcrilley videos if you are into anime drawing styles. Study real cat anatomy too, it helps since anime is mostly exaggeration of lines and features in things.

    P.S DONT ASK HOW TO DRAW
    Be more specific rather "im shit plz help plox pl0x" signals which you are giving out right now. We can't help you if you write like a retard. I have a feeling you wrote this on impulse so it won't matter anyway.

    Besides, i am not trained, i am very sure others can help you more with this but it takes a lot of practice.
    Is that picture made by you? Its quite epic

    :O
    That is pathetically easy to draw with a pencil but it is nice to see you are not overstretching yourself :p
    joke, that would take me a lot of thought to do, harder than imitating a picture or anything else.
