To draw this cartoon Red Panda 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: Lightly sketch two small ovals for the cartoon red panda's eyes. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shapes right, darken the lines. Pay attention to the spacing between the eyes. Inside each eye, draw two tiny circles for highlights. Shade in the eyes but don't overlap the tiny highlight circles. The eye on the right should be a tiny bit bigger than the eye on the left.
Step 2: Below the eye on the left, draw a small oval on its side for the nose. Inside the red panda's nose, near the top, draw a thinner oval for a highlight. Shade the nose but don't overlap the thin highlight oval.
Step 3: Lightly sketch a line that starts to the left of the eye and curves under the nose for the muzzle. Don't draw the line too far down below the chibi red panda's nose. When you get the shape right, darken the line.
Step 4: To the left, lightly sketch a line that curves up and to the right, high above the eyes, for the head. Along the path of the line, at the top, draw three small, spike-like shapes for a bit of fur. Darken the rest of the line. Pay attention how high above the eyes the top of the red panda's head is.
Step 5: To the right of the head, draw a big, triangular shape with curved sides for the first ear. Inside the chibi red panda's ear, draw a curved line along with smaller spike-like shapes for the ear structure and fur.
