This very simple tutorial will help you learn how to draw a teddy bear! Not many toys are as popular as the teddy bear! Why on earth do kids love a stuff animal shape like a bear so much?
I don't have the answer for that! Let's try to draw a simple cartoon teddy bear using mainly circles in this seven steps exercise! Before proceeding with the written version of this lesson, you can also try the video tutorial found below. :)
Let's start this drawing lesson by sketching the head and the ears using three circles like shown on the illustration above.
Continue working on your artwork by drawing a big circle for the body. Next (and for the only time in this tutorial!) draw two rectangles to form the arms of your object.
For the feet, since our animal is sitting, sketch two large oval shapes near the bottom of the body.
Refine the outline of your character (especially the body since the other parts should be OK using the basic shapes).
Add details in the face of your animal.
Finally, draw circles on the feet and arms of the teddy bear.
Add some colors to your illustration. All parts should be brown. The only exceptions should be the mouth, the ears and the circles drawn on the feet and the arms. For these particular shapes, you should use a skin-like color!
Add some shadows to your cartoon character to enhance it! That's it! A simple cartoon teddy bear drawn using mostly circles and the color brown. It couldn't be easier.
