How to Draw a Red Panda

Artist: Dawn / May 11, 2015

Step 1.

Make two shapes; one for the head and another for the body. Sketch in the facial guidelines then proceed to step two.

Step 2.

Using the head guide you just made, begin drawing the panda's head shape, ears and some of the face shape. Notice the small tufts of hair on the head and sides of the head.

Step 3.

We will now draw in the cute little eyes, then the nose and mouth. Once that is done sketch in the detailing inside the ears.

Step 4.

Draw the back end of the body and then draw the back foot and front leg and paw. Don't forget to add the toes.

Step 5.

Finish drawing the body by sketching out the chest and drawing the front and back legs. Draw the paws too.

Step 6.

You will now draw the thick tail, then move to step seven.

Step 7.

Add the stripes to the tail, the markings on the body and the markings on the face. Erase the mistakes and you are all done.

Step 8.

Here is the finished drawing when you are all done. Now you can color in your red panda drawing the way you seen it done in this lesson.

Description: Here is one of the cutest panda drawings I have ever done, or one of the cutest animal lessons I have ever made. Today, we will be having fun as we tackle the task to drawing a red panda, step by step. I do believe I have one of these tutorials already, but I can guarantee that it is not as cute as the one you see here. I love everything about this drawing from the ears to the face and all the way down to the body and tail. The great thing about this lesson is that it's going to be easy enough for everyone to try out and tackle so be sure to leave me some feedback letting me know if you enjoyed drawing a red panda in this style. Stick around people because there is more to come.
