Unlike other animals found on this site, this cartoon bear doesn't have a head and a body. Instead, both elements are merged together into a single large rectangle. Remember to use a thick outline to increase the "cuteness" of the animal.
On top of the head, draw two small circular shapes to illustrate the ears. These new shapes are integrated inside the main shape used to form the head and the body.
Great! It's now time to draw the facial features of this adorable cartoon animal. Inside the rectangle, draw two large circles to represent the eyes. Inside the eyes, draw small circular shapes to form the pupils. Notice how the eyes are partially hidden on both sides of the body.
When you are done, sketch the nose using a small oval shape. Below this one, draw a long curved line to illustrate the mouth. Don't forget that the nose and the mouth are joined by a small straight line.
Inside the ears, draw small oval shapes. Both front legs are done using straight lines while the feet on the bottom of the image are created with oval shapes. Don't forget to create a large patch made from a long curved line on the stomach of the character.
In this final step, you can add plain colors to complete this tutorial. This cartoon bear is mostly filled with a light brown color. The small patches found inside the ears as well as the one located on the stomach are filled with a brighter color.
You can also use a light brown colors for the pupils. The nose and the mouth are filled with a black color. The eyes are simply white.
Great work! As you can see, sketching this bear clipart is a simple task if you can draw rectangles or circles. It's all about implementing these shapes in appropriated areas to end up with something relevant and fun to look at.
