Artist: Dawn / March 25, 2011

Step 1.

All you have to do here is draw out the basic round shapes to make a workable frame for the pandas bodies. Don't forget to add in the facial guidelines for mama panda before you move to step two.

Step 2.

You will now begin drawing out the chubby shape structure of the panda's head which should include the pudgy cheeks and cute round ears.

Step 3.

Cap off the ears, and then draw in the slanted shapes for the panda eyes. Next draw in the small nose as well as her mouth. When that is done you can then move to step four as you draw closer to completing this lesson.

Step 4.

This is a very simple step because all you have to do is draw in the eyeballs and color in the pupils. When that is done sketch in a light line for the chin to add some chubbiness to the face.

Step 5.

Okay guys, you will now draw in the big or mama panda's arms which are simple rounded shapes, and then on the back of her right arm, draw in the baby panda's arms as he clutches to his mommy.

Step 6.

Draw out the big belly shape which is just basically thickening the guideline you drew in step one, and then draw in the legs and small feet that is overpowered by the bulk of the wide pudgy legs.

Step 7.

You are now ready to draw in baby. He or she is very simple to draw because the body is made of circles. When that is done move to the last drawing step to finish drawing these pandas. Don't forget the ears, nose, and mouth for the little fella.

Step 8.

Lastly, erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up the drawing, and then draw in baby panda's eyes. Color in some pupils and you are all done. Lets see how they should look with the finished line art step next.

Step 9.

Here they are, two adorable looking pandas playing as they show affection for one another. I hope you had fun learning how to draw pandas with this lesson I made especially for you guys. Join me again real soon.

Description: Iā€™m on this binge where I feel the need to upload some really cute lessons on some really cool animals. I have a total of three animal tutorials, and the first I will start with is "how to draw pandas", step by step. The panda bear is probably one of the more admired, adored, and loved bear species around. I know one of the reasons is because they are absolutely beautiful animals, and because even though they are big, they still look incredibly docile even if their not. The panda bear is considered to be an endangered species, with a total of only around two hundred sixty plus in existence today. China has the biggest amount of pandas living in captivity, and the other population of panda is either in the wild, or at other conservation facilities. Their black and white coats make them even more unique, and even though their diet consists of ninety nine percent bamboo, they still occasionally munch on meat varying from birds and rodents. I truly had an awesome time making this lesson on "how to draw pandas", and if you are a lover of this bear species you should enjoy this tutorial too. I shall return with more drawing fun in a bit so stay tuned in folks because there is more on the way. Peace out people!
