Pandas are typically associated with bamboo, but did you know that they also enjoy a range of other delicious sweet treats – including a slice of watermelon? Let’s bring this adorable scene to life in just a few short, simple steps.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a drawing compass and a pencil, and add a circle to the center of your page.
Use the pencil and drawing compass to add a curved line to the bottom of this…
And then use a ruler to connect the two sides of the curved line with a straight, horizontal line.
Add another curved line just inside that at the bottom…
And then add another, smaller curve to the bottom of the shape.
Add a small circle to the top section, and bring a line down from the bottom of this. Add a curve to the bottom, with short marks on the ends, and then add a curved line below this.
Add two small, “crescent moon” shapes above this nose and mouth…
And then add curved, oval shapes all around the outside of these.
Add two half-circle shapes to the top of the head for ears…
And then bring two curved shapes up from the corners of the bottom curve, forming the paws of your panda.
Bring two short curved lines across from the top of the bottom section. Add two thin “slivers”, and then bring lines down on the sides, and across to connect to the central section – these are your feet and legs.
Now, add a cloud-like shape to the bottom of the horizontal line, and small “teardrop” shapes all around this for the seeds of your watermelon.
Grab a black pen, and use this to go over all your outlines…
And then use an eraser to remove any outstanding pencil marks.
Grab a black pen, and shade the feet and legs – leaving the “slivers” – as well as the paws and the patches around the eyes.
Use a red pen to shade the main body of the watermelon…
And then a green pen for the rind underneath.
Now, use a black pen for the points and edges of the seeds.
Now, we don’t know about you, but this is making us pretty peckish for some cool, refreshing watermelon – what tasty treat could be better?
