How to Draw a Cute Panda Dabbing

With a penchant for bamboo, large, adorable eyes, and a friendly, innocent nature, panda bears are one of the cutest animals in our kingdom – but they are also sadly endangered.

Trophy hunters, poachers, and developers have caused their numbers to deplete in recent years, and they are one of the main animals to constantly sit at the top of the endangered list.

To try and celebrate their unique magnificence, we will learn how to bring one to life through the power of art – and dabbing.

Just above this, add a vertical line, topped with a curve that meets the shape you just drew. Add a semicircle to cut the top off this, and another, upside down, semicircle at the bottom of this – this will be the eye.

At the end of this, bring the line out, down, and across to the right, before bringing it back in, and across to the right-hand side, creating a leg. At the end of the line, bring the line down towards the bottom right-hand corner of your page.

And then bring the line of the leg back up at an angle, before curving in and back out towards the top right-hand corner of the page. Curve the end of the line round, and follow it back into the head to create an arm.
