How to Draw A Koala

Sponsored Links

Another fun animal from Australia, this time let's learn how to draw a koala using a cool design as our template. This cute animal is sedentary and can sleep up to 20 hours per day. Despite being a little bit lazy, it's a challenging character to draw since many large shapes are needed to depict the large ears and the long nose properly.

Still, the lesson below is quite easy to complete once you are familiar with the technique. Below is a finished version filled with flat colors (and no outlines). As you can see, this cartoon character is quite easy to draw once you are more familiar with its anatomy.

Step 1

Cool! Let's start working on this koala by adding a large oval shape to illustrate the head. Next, use a small rectangle to create the body. Make sure the head is at least twice the size of the body.

Step 2

Continue working on this adorable cartoon animal by creating the front legs using the top of a circle. When you are done, you can illustrate the back legs using long curved lines like shown in the illustration below.

Step 3

Nice! One thing that is easily noticeable on a koala are the long ears. You can draw these ears using large rectangles. As you can see below, the top of the shape must be rounded.

Step 4

It's now time to add some details inside the head. Create the eyes and the pupils using large circular shapes. The nose must be made from a long oval shape.
