Step 6: Draw four short, angled lines below the red panda's body as guides for the feet. Bend the lines to indicate the joints near the middle and the paws at the ends.
Step 7: Draw a curved line on the left side of the body as a guide for the red panda's tail.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 8: Draw the red panda's eyes inside the head using the lines as guides for placement. First lightly draw two small circles, then make the sides pointier as you darken them. Inside each eye, draw a tiny circle to represent glare and a bigger dot for the pupil. Shade in the rest of the red panda's eyes. When shading, use a value that's lighter than the pupils. Darken the edges of the eyes a bit more and draw a few small lines around them for extra detail.
Step 9: Draw the nose inside the red panda's muzzle by first lightly sketching a small circle. Form the shape of the red panda's nose as you follow the path of the circle and darken the lines. Add the nostrils inside the nose as two dark slits. Add a few short lines inside the nose for extra detail.
