Step 11: Draw a long, curved line on the left side to complete the shape of the koala's body. The line for the body should stretch form the lower, left side of the head to the foot.
Step 12: Draw a tree trunk using a couple of lines so that the koala is holding on to something. First draw a long, vertical line on the right side. Use a straight edge if you need to. Then add shorter lines above and below the koala for the rest of the tree.
Step 13: Using a pen or marker, carefully go over the lines to make your koala drawing permanent. After inking, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser.
Final Step: Color your cartoon koala drawing using color pencils, markers or crayons! Use gray for the fur but leave the ears and a strip under the head and body blank. For an easier drawing, simply color the koala's whole body gray without the white bits. Color the nose black but leave a thin strip at the top blank to represent shine. Color the inside of the ears pink. Add some pink to the mouth under the nose too. Color the tree trunk light brown. Don't overlap the koala as you color the tree trunk. Don't forget to pause the video to draw at your own pace.
