In this tutorial, we will show you how to draw a panda face. The panda is one of the most attractive rare animals that are listed in the Red Book. It belongs to the bear family, has the same habits and lifestyle as all bears, but differs from its relatives in its unusual black and white color. It is this color that makes her so interesting. Panda is a national symbol of China, her image is used by world brands for their logo and she is a cartoon hero, take at least the famous and beloved cartoon “Kung Fu Panda”.
Step 1 – Draw a Basic Outline
So, we start a guide on how to draw a panda face. Draw a large circle first. Place this circle in the very center of a piece of paper if you are drawing a portrait. Try to draw this without using any auxiliary tools. As you can see, this shape is not perfectly flat and symmetrical.
Step 2 – Draw the Approximate Outlines of the Eyes
Add a pair of eyes. These are small rounded shapes that look like two grains. Pay attention to the distance between the eyes, this is quite an important point.
Step 3 – Draw the Panda’s Nose
Draw the nose. As you can see, the panda has a wide, flat nose that is quite far from the eyes. The nostrils appear as two oblique semicircles. The outer borders of the nose are formed by smooth, curved lines.
Step 4 – Draw the Upper Part of the Mouth
Draw the panda’s cheeks. In fact, many animals have a similar cheek shape. It looks like two semicircles that form something like a smile. You have probably seen such a funny shape of the cheeks in many animals, for example, cats or dogs.
Step 5 – Draw the Lower Part of the Mouth
So, we continue the guide on how to draw a panda face. Now draw the contours of the mouth using smooth arched lines. It will be great if you form a small triangle between the cheeks and mouth as in our sample.
Step 6 – Mark the Panda Spots
Dark spots around the eyes are one of the most important features of a panda. If you’ve never slept for a couple of nights in a row, you’ve probably identified yourself with this animal. In fact, sleep is very important, so if you want to sleep, get some sleep immediately. After that sketch out the outlines of the teeth and dark spots of this lovely panda.
Step 7 – Draw Panda Ears
Another must-see feature of a panda is rounded ears. Draw a pair of flattened circles that are positioned slightly lateral to the top of our panda’s head. Use short shading to create a thick coat effect.
Step 8 – Draw the Texture of the Wool
Drawing detailed fur is too difficult. You can do this if you have a super realistic drawing in mind. However, we prefer a more cartoonish style, so drawing only the outlines as a wool texture would be a great choice.
Step 9 – Remove Extra Lines
So let’s give the panda a more complete and realistic look. To do this, carefully erase all unnecessary auxiliary guidelines and trace the drawing to make it more expressive.
Step 10 – Color the Panda Face Drawing
Use the combination of black and white to color your sketch. By adding shadows, you can make this panda face drawing more voluminous. Notice the white highlights inside each eye. This detail makes the drawing very lively.
So the work on drawing the panda has been completed. As you can see, nothing complicated, but a very good result. As a result of the work done, our panda or bamboo bear, as it is also called, looks very cute. We hope you enjoyed drawing the panda, like all our previous works.
