This tutorial will help you learn how to draw a cartoon bear. There are many things in life that I don't really wish to experience. Meeting a bear alone in a forest is one of them.
Fortunately, this big and ferocious animal is probably more scare of you than you are of it. Instead of encountering one of these creatures, let's try to draw it!
First, draw a circle to illustrate the head. Make it perfectly round. Next, add two rectangles to create the ears.
For the rest of the body, once again, you only need to add simple shapes! The body itself is made with a perfect circle. Draw it about twice as big as the head. For the feet, only an oval shape moved in a 45 degrees angle is necessary. And for the hands, just draw a rectangle near the feet for now.
Let's work on the outline of our bear now! Refine the shape of the feet by adding four small toes on each of them.
Then, work on the body of the bear by drawing the upper part a little bit narrower. You can also adjust the hands by sketching only the outline more accurately, just like in the image shown above.
Add the details on your bear's face like the eyes, the nose and the mouth. You can also draw the ears by making the bottom part narrow and rounder.
Finally, add some details on the body itself and on the feet of your bear to complete the whole thing.
And that's it! Only by using some very basic shapes and by placing them on the right spot, you are now able to draw a bear that is funny and easily recognizable in only a few minutes! I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial and have fun!
