It’s easy to draw a cat using your computer keyboard. In a few simple keystrokes, you can create a simple, but cute keyboard cat. How complicated you want to be is up to you!
[Edit]Finding Fonts and Designs
- Learn how to create the common keystrokes used to create a cat. You will need to use certain keys for different parts of the cat’s body. Some people create more complex cats with their keyboards than others. But they use the same keys.
- Using the ^ symbols (hold down one of the shift keys and press 6 on the number above the first line of letters) make nice cat ears, and you can use either aw for a cat’s mouth, two Underscores and a period between them, or simply a period for a nose.
- You can use the lowercase or uppercase letter o for the eyes; If you want a surprised cat, the cue can be ‘crying’ eyes, or you can use @ signs for googly eyes if you prefer. Feel free to use in a text document.
- Use the correct font, and try not to use spacing. Unless specified, many emoticons do not use spacing between characters. Add spaces, or use the wrong font, and it might not be cat-like at all.
- When using multiple lines of text to create a cat with legs, the figure may not appear correctly when using a font that is not monospaced, meaning a font whose letters have the same horizontal width. Not there.
- Examples of common mono-spaced fonts include Courier and American Typewriter. Many common fonts are not monospaced, including Times New Roman and Arial. These are known as proportional fonts.
- Research ASCII Art Cat Face Online. In its most complex forms, such artwork (of cats and other things) has a technical name. This is called ASCII art. It is a graphic design technique that creates a design using the 95 printable characters defined by the ASCII standard.
- There are so many different types of cats, and the designs are extraordinarily complex. For example, you have the Rose^^ face, which is created by pressing Shift and 6 twice, the =” . “= face, which speaks for itself, and many other different faces.
- Just play around and use your imagination. ASCII is considered an art form because there’s really no one way to draw a cat or anything on it. There are many free resources available online with pre-made ASCII art.
- Try searching online with the word ASCII followed by the image you’re trying to create, to see what others have already created. If you’re interested in making your own ASCII art, try finding a tutorial on making ASCII art. It’s amazing what you can do with your keyboard.
- You can also enable different languages on your keyboard, which will allow you to use signs from different alphabets, or you can just go online and search ASCII art for examples of cat faces.
[Edit]Creating a Basic Cat Face
- Create a basic cat. Although there are many different ways to draw a cat with your keyboard, the most basic method only requires a few keystrokes.
- Create the first whisker: To do this, type an equal sign. Press the = key. After this step, you will have: =
- Now, type the first eye: Type a caret (^) by holding down the Shift key, and then tap the 6 key. After this step, you will have: =^
- Draw a mouth: Type two periods by pressing the period key twice. Now, you will have: =^..
- Create a second eye and mustache: Type a caret and an equal sign. If done correctly, the figure produced should resemble a cat. Now, you will have: =^..^=
- An alternate version uses a single period for the nose and other symbols for the ears. ,
[Edit]making complex cats
- Add some variation to your cat. You can change the symbol by replacing two periods with a hyphen or an underscore: =^-^= or =^_^=. There’s room for creativity, so feel free to come up with new variations. You can also type the following: =’ . ‘ = Note: If you leave a space, you get it = “.” = will get
- Adding feet creates a new line; Press the Enter key to start drawing the cat’s legs on the line of text below the line on which the cat’s face is located. Create the first footer: Type an open parenthesis followed by a quotation mark and a closing parenthesis.
- After this step, you will have: (“) Make the second leg: Repeat step 2. After this step, you will have: (“) (“) Enjoy your cat face. Cat face and leg together Will look like this: =^..^= (“)(“)
- Try other versions of cat. You can try other variations of cat, such as (^ ‘w’ ^) (left bracket, caret, space, single quote, space, w, space, single quote, space, caret, right bracket).
- There are many variations of cat faces, some focused on the cat’s eyes.
- Another version is (^ = ‘w’ = ^) (with the equals sign added for the whiskers.) You’ll quickly notice that the carets (^) are the important part here because they resemble cat ears.
- Once you’ve mastered one cat, try other animals! For example, there are many examples of keyboard bunnies online.
