That's it for the guides! From this point on, press harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing of a koala.
Step 6: Darken the small circles inside the head to create the koala's eyes. Draw an extra-small angled line on the insides of the shapes for the corners of the eyes. Make sure that the eyes are in the correct position in the head before you darken the shapes.
Step 7: Inside each eye, draw a small, dark slit for the pupils. Koalas have thin pupils like cats, so don't draw them too round unless you want a dilated look. Draw the slits near the middle of the eyes, but they don't have to be perfectly centered. On either side of each pupil, draw a tiny circle for highlights. Draw a couple of curved lines above and under the koala's eyes for extra detail. Use a series of short strokes above the eyes to represent fur.
Step 8: Inside the big oval, at the bottom, draw two small, curved lines for the nostrils. The nostrils should be similar to ovals, and they should be tilted a bit. Darken the edge of the initial oval to create the shape of the koala's nose. Make the bottom flatter. Make the right side narrower than the oval. Use short strokes along the top to represent fur. On the lower, right side of the nose, draw a series of short strokes that curve to the right for the mouth.
Step 9: Below the nose, draw a curved line that's made up of short strokes for the furry chin. The koala's chin should be U-shaped. Add more short strokes underneath for extra detail.
