Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Bear (Cartoon)" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a short diagonal line for the first eyebrow. The line angles a bit on the left side. Sketch lightly at first to get the shape right. Now draw another short, diagonal line facing the opposite direction for the growling bear's second eyebrow. Add a few short lines to emphasize the furrowed brow. Don't place the lines too far apart.
Step 2: Add a thin diamond-like shape under each eyebrow for the eyes. You can add pupils inside the bear's eyes if you'd like, or just leave them blank for a more ferocious look.
Step 3: Below the eyes, near the right side, draw a curved horizontal line for the top part of the bear's nose. Curve the ends of the line inward and add a dot on each side for the nostrils. The bottom part of the nose should come to a point. Add a short vertical line in the middle.
Step 4: Draw a short, curved vertical line to the right of the nose for the first part of the muzzle. Now extend this line toward the left to create the top part of the bear's open mouth. Add a curved, diagonal line on the left side as a wrinkle on the bear's muzzle.
Step 5: Under the snarling bear's mouth, on either side, draw a long V-shaped line for the canine teeth. Between the canine teeth, draw four shorter V- shaped lines for the front teeth.
