Step 6: To the left of the face, draw a long, curved line that's made up of tiny spike-like shapes for the cartoon cheetah's head. Pay attention to the distance from the face. Sketch the shape lightly at first. Then darken the lines.
Step 7: To the right of the face, draw another long, curved line that's made up of spiky shapes for the other side of the head. This shape should be closer to the cheetah's face than the other side of the head.
Step 8: On the top, left side, draw a big arc for the cartoon cheetah's first ear. Sketch lightly at first. Inside the arc, draw a short, curved line for the ear's inner structure. Along the bottom, draw a few spike-like shapes for the furry base of the ear.
Step 9: On the top, right side, draw a smaller arc for the cheetah's other ear. Draw a curved line and spike-like shapes within the arc for the ear's structure and fur.
Step 10: At the top, connect the ears using a curved line to form the top part of the head. In the middle of the top of the head, draw a few short, spike-like shapes for fur. Connect the inner edges of the eyes to the sides of the mouth for the distinctive cheetah tear pattern. Curve the lines outward at the bottom to create the shape of the cat's muzzle. The lines should be thin at the top and gradually become thicker toward the bottom.
