Has anyone heard of two characters named Rilakkuma and Tarepanda? Well if you have you already know that they are some pretty popular characters in Japan. So popular in fact The New York Times once said that they are a pop culture hit in Japan. This lesson is going to be on one of the two figures. SO let’s grab out pencils and learn "how to draw Rilakkuma", step by step. Rilakkuma is a cute brown colored stuffed bear that shows up one day in the home of Kaoru’s out of nowhere. This character made his debut in a picture book named ‘Rilakkuma Seikatsu’. I guess ever since then he has made a name for himself as being one of the cutest stuffed bears in Japanese history. I had a lot of fun drawing Rilakkuma because he was so easy to recreate. I feel confident that you too will enjoy this lesson, so go ahead and let the games begin. Adios mi amigos, good luck.
