How to Draw a Tribal Panda, Tribal Panda Tattoo

Artist: Dawn / November 16, 2011

Step 1.

Make a simple circle for the head and then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Sketch out the outlined shape of the head like so, and notice how the lining widens for the formation of the cheeks.

Step 3.

Now that the outlined shape of the panda's head is all drawn in, you can draw out the ears like so, and then color them in. Draw the long swirls to start the creation of the face.

Step 4.

Okay guys, here is when it starts to get really fun. Draw out the blackened shapes for the eyes, and be sure to leave a small almond shape white for the actual eyeballs. Draw the black markings on the nose bridge, and then draw in the black markings    

Step 5.

You are coming close to the end of this task. All you have to do here is draw out and color in some of the left side of the body or neck and shoulder. Draw in the mouth, and chin hairs. You will finish off the face by adding more tribal marks.

Step 6.

Now that the panda is done, begin drawing out the bamboo shoot like you see here. Color in as well.

Step 7.

This is the last drawing step guys, you will finish by drawing out the bamboo leaves, and then draw the kanji word below the shoot. Clean up the drawing and prepare to see what it looks like all cleaned up.

Step 8.

Here is the finished drawing when all is said and done. I hope you like the finished results now you can either color in your sketch, or take the line art down to your local tattoo parlor for an inking job.

Description: So I really loved the way that the tribal lizard came out yesterday and because of this I wanted to make another animal inspired tribal design that I think you guys will really like. Here is "how to draw a tribal panda", step by step. The panda design came out looking incredibly cool and for those of you that have a love or passion for drawing pandas, you will most definitely fall in love with this tutorial. The end results of this drawing piece looks a lot like those posters that you can color with the markers that are provided with each design. The black surface has a felt like feel, and the rainbow like coloring makes this drawing even more intriguing to look at. If you would rather print out the finished picture and hang it on your wall that would be a good idea too. Or you can go ahead and tackle this lesson on drawing a tribal panda, color it in, and show your family and friends what you have just accomplished.
