Time for the eye itself! Draw a blue ellipse and manipulate its shape.

kittenangel8-4_eye

Draw another ellipse for the pupil. Use a darker shade of the blue (black wouldn't look good here, trust me).

kittenangel8-5_pupil

We'll add a little glow now. Copy the eye and drag it above the pupil. Make it narrower and position it near the bottom of the eye.

kittenangel8-6_eyeglow1

Open the Gradient panel. With the "glow" ellipse selected, choose black to white gradient from the list, then double-click the black arrow to change it to white. Now we've got white-white gradient. Change the angle to 90 degrees, then change the left arrow's Opacity to 60% and the right one's to 0%. Looks good!

kittenangel8-7_eyeglow2

I'm sure you guessed how to create an ear. They're just like triangles, right?

kittenangel9-1_ear_shape

Oh, maybe not really, but mostly. We can fix it but modifying the points to at volume to the tip of the ears as shown below.

kittenangel9-2_ear_shape2

Copy the ear, resize it and change its color to pink. That's an inside of the ear!

kittenangel9-3_ear_inside

There should be a part of head visible behind the ears. Draw it with light brown.

kittenangel9-4_below_ears

Time to add more fur. If you created a new layer for every part, you shouldn't have problems with it. If you didn't, just draw the fur on a new layer, group it and then drag in under the others. Change the size of the brush anytime you need (the fur around the mouth is certainly thinner).

kittenangel10-1_fur

And the whiskers! You can use your fur brush for it, just choose really small size and draw long lines.

kittenangel10-2_whiskers

All this time we've been focused on the left half of the head, without caring about the mess on the other side. We need to cut it before we copy the half. Draw a rectangle that will cover all the left half and touch the guide with its right side (the color doesn't matter).

kittenangel11-1_clipping_mask

Select everything you've done so far and go to Object > Clipping Mask > Make (or just use shortcut Control + 7). Now we've got a neat left half!

kittenangel11-2_clippin_mask2

Select the half and go to Object > Transform > Reflect. Select Vertical and clickCopy. Now just move the other half to its place. The head is complete!

kittenangel11-3_the_other_half

We've got a lot of work behind us, so at this point everything should be a piece of cake! Create New Layer under the head (Lock the head layer to avoid mistakes) and draw a column of ellipses. It will build the upper part of the body, neck, shoulders and torso. We'll mix some colors here - the middle one (#ffce99) is 100% bright. You just need to move the brightness slider to get the others. Don't forget about long, thick fur!

kittenangel12-1_barrow_colors

Now the lower part. Draw three ellipses for the rest of the torso and two legs. It's the same trick with colors here - you can just pick the color for the torso from the part above, then manipulate their brightness. The further the element from us, the darker it should be.

kittenangel12-2_barrow_2nd_half

Don't forget to add fur to the new shapes.

kittenangel12-3_barrow_2nd_half_fur

Now time for little paws. Draw an ellipse for a single finger and create the shape as shown below.

kittenangel12-4_paw_finger

Reflect the finger vertically and place it next to the first one.

kittenangel12-5_paw_finger2

They both look the same, so we need some border for them. Duplicate both fingers and having them selected, click Intersect in Pathfinder. Then darken the part you've just got.

kittenangel12-6_paw_finger_middle

Let's use the same process for the remaining fingers.

  • Copy one finger, make it smaller and drag it under the other fingers
  • Copy it, pick the darker color for it and make the copy more narrow, to get a border too
  • You can now reflect the last finger.
kittenangel12-7_whole_paw

When your paw is done, copy it to a layer under the original, and darken its colors, both for the fingers and borders. Also, add a dark ellipse for the tummy.

kittenangel12-8_the_other_paw

As all the body is ready, you know what to do to get the other half! When done, use the same process to add the tail.

kittenangel12-9_whole_barrow

We've got a kitty now, but it's just a usual kitty. Let's make it more fun! First, we need a background that will flatter the cat's eyes. Don't forget about the shadow, or our kitty will seem to be floating in the air.

kittenangel13-1_bg

We'll build the wings now. We'll create just one wing and reflect it when it's done. So, start with three ellipses that make an "arm" together (a wing is nothing but an arm with feathers).

kittenangel13-2_wing_arm

Before we start drawing feathers, we can use a little trick again to save a lot of time - build a brush for one feather! Make it out of one black ellipse as an Art Brush (don't forget about Tints in Colorization Method). Check it out, it's a really nice brush!

kittenangel13-3_feather_brush

Now just draw a row of the feathers. The arrows show you direction of them.

kittenangel13-4_wings1

Draw another row, using a brighter shade. The direction stays the same.

kittenangel13-5_wings2

And the last one, almost (but not entirely) white.

kittenangel13-6_wings3

Our kitty is an angel, not a bird, so we need to make the wings even more unusual. What about making them glow? Draw a rectangle in any color, then go to Filter > Stylize > Outer Glow and change the options to these below.

kittenangel14-1_glow_example

Remove any colors from the rectangle, then open Graphic Styles tab (you can find it in Window menu) and click New Style icon. The style of the rectangle (no fill, no stroke, and glow that's invisible at the moment) will be saved and ready to use anywhere else.

kittenangel14-2_glow_example_save

Now select the last row of the feathers and use the style. But there's a catch - the style we've saved has no fill! If you select it directly, it will make the feathers invisible. To avoid it, you need to add this style to existing one - just hold Alt when clicking the style.

kittenangel14-3_glow_usage

Once the wing is ready, reflect it to the other side.

kittenangel14-4_both_wings

There's just one more thing we need to do. Draw an ellipse with a thick, white stroke and no fill. It will be a halo!

kittenangel14-5_aureole

It should be glowing too, so apply our style to it. If you like the effect, you're done, however I suggest changing its color to bright yellow - it will be appear warmer. To do this, open Appearance tab, click Outer Glow and edit the options.
