To draw this cartoon Polar Bear step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and 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 two small ovals for the polar bear's eyes. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. Inside each eye, draw two tiny circles to represent glare. Shade the eyes but don't overlap the tiny glare circles. Don't push down too hard with your pencil. You will be erasing it after inking it in a later step.
Step 2: Under the eye on the right, draw a small oval on its side for the nose. Sketch lightly at first and only darken when you get the shape right. Add a smaller, thinner oval inside for glare. Shade the polar bear's nose but don't overlap the glare oval.
Step 3: To the right of the nose, draw a short, curved line for the cheek. At the bottom, curve the line toward the left side for the bottom of the polar bear's head.
Step 4: Draw the top of the polar bear's head by first making a small mark high above the eye on the left. Now connect the mark to the cheek at the bottom to form the head. The line for the side of the head should be very close to the eye on the right.
Step 5: On the top, left side of the head, draw a small, wide arc as a guide for the first ear. The shape of the polar bear's ear should be similar to the letter C on its side. Add the other ear on the top, right side. Add a short line within the shape of each ear for more structure.
