Step 10: Draw the rest of the cheetah's muzzle using the initial angled line as a guide. Draw an angled line that starts under the nose, then stretches to the right toward the head for the mouth. Draw a smaller curved line to the left for the other side of the mouth. Draw another curved line under the mouth for the bottom lip. Follow the bottom edge of the guide to draw the chin. Use quick, short strokes to represent fur.
Step 11: Darken the arcs on top of the head to create the shapes of the cheetah's ears. Add a line within the arc for the ear's edge and a few quick, short strokes for the furry texture.
Step 12: Use the initial circle and lines as guides to draw the rest of the cheetah's head. Follow the basic path of the guides as you darken the lines to create the head. Use quick, short strokes as you draw the shape of the head to indicate the fur. The line for the bottom of the head should stretch toward the inside of the shapes to create the jawline.
Step 13: Use the angled lines as guides to draw the legs that are on this side of the body. Lightly sketch the shape of the leg as you follow the basic path of the guide line. When you get the structure of the cheetah's leg right, darken the lines.
The top part of the leg should be thicker than the bottom. The thinnest part should be the joint before the paw. Draw the cheetah's paw pointing down because it's hanging pretty loose as the other front leg takes the stride. Use a couple of small curved lines at the bottom of the paw to indicate the individual toes.
Draw the hind leg that's on this side of the body the same way. First lightly sketch the shape of the leg as you follow the basic path of the guide. Follow the top line, not the bottom one. As you sketch the shape of the cheetah's leg, be sure to draw the top part a lot thicker than the bottom.
When you get the structure of the leg right, darken the lines. Unlike the front leg, the hind leg should not be pointing down. It should be stretched back toward the right. Add a couple of curved lines at the tip to indicate the cheetah's toes pointing up.
Step 14: Now draw the legs that are on the other side of the body by using the remaining lines as guides. Follow the path of the guide as you create the shape of the leg. Don't overlap the lines of the leg in front of it. Use curved lines on the tip of the paw for the toes. Add a small line at the end of the toes for the cheetah's claws. Draw the paw and toes big because the foot is spread out wide as it braces for impact.
Now follow the basic path of the line on the right to draw the hind leg on the other side of the body. Most of this leg is hidden behind the the other hind leg, so only draw the bottom half of it.
