Now after you’ve learnt how the tools work, you can begin to draw! In order to draw, use the pencil tool. Since this is your first drawing and therefore you’re not experienced in Inkscape, I’d recommend you use an image of the internet to be your inspiration source. Go to google images and find a find an easy-to-draw object or animal. In this example we’ll use a cartoon cat. We copy our image from the internet and paste it into Inkscape. We then put it in the background and set the opacity to 50% to make it transparent. Like this:

So now that we have our kitty in our file, we can actually start to draw the outline of our cat. For this you’ll have to use the pencil tool. It’s really easy and simple. Just go over the lines and draw. It is important to know that you always have to start to draw the shape of the object first and the details (for example nose, paws & eyes) later on. Don’t also forget to put everything in the right color after you’re done.

After you have drawn the entire outline and the ribbon on the top of the cat, it’s time to move on to the glasses. The pair of glasses is more tricky to draw. The first thing you need to do is to draw a circle , adjust in size until it correlates with the same size of the pair of glasses in the image, don’t fill it, but make it empty, and thicken the stroke to a preferable 15 in pixels. Don’t forget to color it pink too!
the same goes for the border of the eyes. Draw a circle, don’t color the inside and give it a stroke that is thick enough.For the eyeballs however, you need to color the inside blue and make it have no stroke at all.
