"Love is a song that never ends."
- Bambi

Bambi is the title character of a cherished children's book and a 1942 Disney animated film. We first meet Bambi as a newborn fawn. During his first year of life, he befriends a rabbit named Thumper and a skunk named Flower. He avoids the attention of a female fawn called Faline. He also learns of the dangers of the meadow and the need for caution.

Later, Bambi's mother is killed by hunters and he is raised by his father, the Great Prince of the Forest. Bambi II, a sequel to the original film, fills in the gaps of the young deer's youth. He goes on to become twitterpated with Faline and they have twin fawns. Plot similarities to The Lion King have been noted, namely that of a young prince losing a parent and falling in love with his best friend.

Bambi is a popular culture icon rivaling that of Mickey Mouse himself. He is featured on countless merchandise. He has made cameo appearances in unrelated films including The Rescuers, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, A Goofy Movie, Zootopia, and Ralph Breaks the Internet.

2. Use curved lines to begin to detail the face, mouth, and nose. Extend a curved line from the bottom of the circle to begin the lower jaw. Draw another line near the top of the circle. Allow it to run nearly parallel to the circle before jutting out to form the nose, then returning to close proximity. Use a curved line to enclose the shape of the nose.

Draw a curved line across the top of the eye to indicate the eyelid and lash. Then, enclose three successively smaller circular shapes within the eye. Shade between the two smallest to indicate the pupil. Finally, draw a curved line from the top of the eye to the opposite side of the face.
