Step 10: Darken the edges of the eyes to make them stand out and give them more shape. Make the sides of the cheetah's eyes pointier for a more eye-like shape. Inside each eye, add a tiny dot for the pupils. Above each eye, draw a few short strokes for fur.
Step 11: Inside the muzzle, near the right side, lightly sketch a small triangle for the cheetah's nose. When you get the size and shape right, darken the top edge but make it wavier. Darken the sides of the shape but make the lines curve inward to create the nostrils. Complete the bottom edge and add an extra pointy shape on the top, left side.
Step 12: Under the nose, draw a line that curves to the left for the first half of the mouth. Add a shorter line that curves to the right for the other side of the mouth. At the bottom, draw a short, curved line that's make up of tiny strokes for the cheetah's fuzzy chin.
Step 13: Draw a line that connects the inner corners of the eyes to the sides of the mouth for the markings. These thick, tear- like lines should curve outward at the bottom to shape the muzzle. The line on the right should be thinner because of the way the cheetah's head is turned.
Step 14: Darken the arcs on the head to create the shapes of the cheetah's ears. Add a series of short strokes within each arc for the fur found there.
