Panda bears are known for their big dark eyes, love of bamboo, and, sadly, their need for protection. To celebrate these gorgeous creatures, we are going to learn how to bring a panda to life through the power of art – let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with an orange pencil, and draw an “n” shape in the center of your page, making the sides slightly jagged. Then, add tufts to the top and sides.
Use a thick black pen, and draw a curved line to the bottom right of this.
From the top of this, take a line across to the left, and up towards the top left-hand corner of the page.
Now, add a curve to the bottom of this line, curving this across below the one above.
Grab a green pen, and add a long, curved point horizontally across the end of this.
Add curved lines to the top and bottom, and add a small leaf shape to each of these. Shade the pointed shape to create a branch.
Use a black pen to add curved shapes to the top and bottom of the pointed branch.
Use the black pen to shade the main shape…
And then add two oval shapes above this.
Draw two small circles inside these oval shapes.
Use a black pen to shade the space in between these shapes, creating rings…
And then add small circles inside each of the white central sections.
Now, add a curved brow above each eye…
And add a long, thin shape below the eyes. Follow this with a small half circle at the bottom, and then bring a line down and curved across to the right.
Add a “crescent moon” shape to the left of this to create the outside of the mouth.
Shade the space in the center with a red pen…
And then use a black pen to create a curved ear on the right of the head.
Add another ear on the left of the head…
Use an orange pen to add a short line below the right side, and a longer, curved line on the left.
Now, use a black pen to add an angled shape to the bottom of the right line, and then add another curved shape above it. Add a small oval inside this second shape, with four smaller ovals above to create a paw, and shade the space around this with a black pen.
Now, use a black pen to add a wavy line to the bottom left of the arm.
Add another line just above this, and shade the space in between with the black pen.
Add another foot just below this.
Now, use an orange pencil for the main body of the panda.
And voila – a super cute panda with a delicious sprig of bamboo to eat and enjoy – what could be better than that?
