Polar bears are majestic, powerful creatures – but their true scale can sometimes be overlooked until they stand up proudly on their hind legs. Want to see what this looks like, and the true size of these creatures? Then let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin by using a black fineliner pen to draw two pointed triangle shapes, connected by a curved line in the center, at the top of your page.
Connect the two sides together with a slightly curved “V” shape to form the face.
Now, bring a curved line down on each side, and add a point at the bottom.
Draw a large “n” shape inside the bottom of the face…
And then bring a small line down from the bottom, with a short horizontal line crossing the bottom of this.
Add a small triangle inside each of the ears…
And then add two curved shapes on either side of the “n” with two shapes above and then pointed, “crescent moon” shapes above this.
Bring down a curved line on either side, and then add a short, slightly angled curved line to the bottom of each.
Add a large circle to the bottom of each side, and fill this with short marks at the bottom.
On the right shape, bring up a jagged “backward C” shape from the top, and then take a curved line to the bottom of the shape. Then, take the right side of this down, and across to the left, before curving it back up.
Repeat this on the left, with a jagged shape to the top, and a line that is curved and then jagged coming down towards the bottom of the page.
Take this to a “fork” at the bottom, and bring the left line back up.
Then, bring a curved line down on either side.
Add small “bumps” to the bottom of these curved lines for feet, and then bring these up in the middle to create the legs of your bear.
Add another line outlining this curve of the legs, and add points to the top corners.
Now, add short marks to the bottom of the feet for claws…
And then add a long, thin pointed shape in the center of the body. Follow this with shapes on either side.
Use a black pen to shade the nose…
And then use a brown pencil for the patches.
And there we have it – a fearsome polar bear standing tall and proud. This may be one creature that is best enjoyed from a distance!
