How to Draw a Cartoon Panda
The giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) lives in the remote mountain forests of China. Panda are famous for their unique black and white coloration as well as their appetite for bamboo.
Would you like to draw your very own cartoon panda? Now you can, by following this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial.
All you need is a pencil and a piece of paper. You may also want to have an eraser handy to correct any mistakes, and crayons, markers, or colored pencils to shade your finished drawing.
Each step of this simple drawing guide is accompanied by an illustration. In each illustration, new lines added during that step are highlighted in blue, while lines drawn in previous steps are shown in black. You may want to sketch lightly first, as you will need to erase some of your early lines as you go along.

Draw the arms using a series of curved lines. For each arm, extend a curved line from the head and across the stomach, doubling back on itself. Use a short, curved line to draw the underside of the arm.
Draw two large ovals across the face to form the eye spots. Draw the nose using an irregular oval. Draw a curved line beneath the nose, and connect it to the nose using another curved line.
Draw a stick of bamboo in the panda’s paw. The bamboo consists of a series of narrow, rectangular shapes with rounded corners.
