Again for kids, maybe their first time drawing you start with a head. How about a kitty cat. Start with that. Get the tail that comes around like that. Make some legs and there they've got that, kitty cats have that funny mouth that comes around. A place for eyes and a place for the ears. Now it's all set up and you can go in and fill in the blanks. The kitty ears over here. And go through and make happy eyes. Add some lashes if you want to. You've got the nose. Big smile tongue coming out. Couple of whiskers there. Add those in.
