Drawing a Friendly Cartoon Panda
This cute, plump cartoon panda is a lot of fun to make and also extremely easy if you follow these steps. There are lots of circles and ovals in this one as the panda is nice and round, so be sure to check the placement and size of each one!
Step 1 - Drawing Circles
Make two slightly elongated ovals on either side of the head oval. These will eventually form the arms. Both the ovals will be overlapping the body semi circle and one will be touching the head oval while the other one will have a small gap between the head oval and itself.
If the text confuses you, don't forget to see the examples and follow them as closely as possible with regards to the size and shape as well as the placement of the ovals.
Now we add two small lines going down from the sides of the head oval and touching the arm ovals and then add another curved line to join these two and you have the face of the panda taking shape. The last thing to add to the head is the two small circles at the top of the head for the small ears.
In this step draw two small circles which will be the hands of the cartoon panda attached towards the inner edge of the arm ovals. Again please see the example image for the placement.
Lastly, you should erase the extra lines from the face as shown, so that you can see the shape of the panda's face now.
Step 5 - Finishing up the Face
Pat yourself on the back for making it this far. Next you'll come to the mouth and the nose of the cartoon panda. Remember the circle that was made in the middle of the face of the panda? At the top centre of that circle draw a rounded triangle which will be the nose.
Below the centre circle, we make yet another rounded shape for the smiling mouth of the panda.
