First start out with a head, roundish at the top, then flatter near the bottom.
Then proceed with the arms, first add a triangle near the bottom of the head, that's where her neck will be. Then make an oval in the middle of the triangle.
Add some more body to it, add the hips and the thighs and the legs, then add the tail.
Add the ears too, and erase some of the lines like so.
Next add some more detail within the borders of the lines, add some arms and some inner ears and then some shade
Add her face, now you know why that line in the begging was for :U
Add a box or a circle or what I did here around her and then darken the lines with a sharpe or a black marker.
Next add some color, you can be exact or just a little off, like so, and your done!
