drawing cool panda pictures using basic shapes

Let's begin by creating a simple template made from basic shapes. This step is important so that we can  work with the posture and the proportions of the character before adding all final lines. First, draw the head using a rectangle. The ears, the nose and the patches are made from circles.

Next, sketch the body using a smaller square. Both arms are represented by small rectangles. Finally, complete this step with the addition of two small circles to form the legs.

Now that the template is created, let's draw our cartoon panda. Make sure the head is much bigger and don't forget to draw long eyes made from oval shapes. Small patches can also be drawn inside the ears and the feet of the character. A larger patch is drawn inside the body.

Now that all major lines are added, you can erase the guidelines created earlier. All lines drawn in the previous step (in blue) are the ones that we need to keep. This cartoon panda looks lovely. It's great, but it could be even better if we could add colors.

We could use a black color inside most patches and body parts, but I prefer to use a dark grey color. The contrast is better and the result visually more appealing. Don't forget to add a little bit of pink inside both ears to complete this drawing lesson.
