  • For the outline of the mouth, make a horizontal oval shape just below the eyes.

Step 2: Make ears and add details

  • To make ears, make two curved lines ( assume that you are making the letter C) on both sides of the head.
  • Now, draw two more oval shapes in the outline made in Step 1 for the eyes. Then again, make an oval shape to make the pupils and fill it with a black sketch pen.
  • For the nose, draw a small triangle on the outline of the mouth. ( Make sure that the corners of the ends should be curved)
  • To make a snout, make a small straight line from the nose and close it by drawing a curved line. ( It should look like an inverted T with a curved line at the end)

Step 3: Draw the Body.

Make a small circle starting below the head of the panda to make the body.

Step 4: Make hands

Draw two small rectangles or an oval shape on each side of the body. ( Make sure that the angles of the rectangle should be curved).

Step 5: Make legs

To make legs, make two rectangles or an oval shape at the bottom of the body. Make sure that they are attached to the body.

Step 6: Finally, It is time to add colours

Now, the most fun part of the drawing is to add colours. Do black colour on the ears, nose, eyes, arms and legs. 

You can check the reference image if you are having any confusion.

Final Touches

Make a small circle inside the eyes with the help of a white colour. You can also add white and grey to the body by mixing them. Add small lines inside the paws to show the panda’s fingers.

After this, erase all the extra lines you might have made during the drawing. Complete your drawing by making the border of leaves.

Additionally, what you can do

  • You can add small grass around the Panda. It will make your drawing look more attractive.
  • You can show a group of pandas sitting in the grass or playing with each other.
  • Draw a forest and make panda-eating fruits and bamboo sticks. It will make your drawing look more creative.
