How to Draw a Polar Bear Cub, Polar Bears

how to draw a polar bear cub, polar bears step 1

STEP 1.

Start out by picking your pencils. I used an F pencil for shading/sketching, a 3B for dark lines/shading, and a 2H pencil for light lines/shading.

Roughly and lightly shade in the shadows on the cub. I used a 3B pencil for this but an HB would also work.

Now work your way around the body by working on the legs first. Start out by defining the leg a bit. Use an F pencil for dark shading and 2H for lighter shading.

Now, smooth out your background and sketch out the ground. You ground doesn't need to look at all like mine. It looks like this here because it was originally going to be rock but I ended up changing it to to dirt/earth.

Finish up your drawing by shading in the ground and fixing up your shading and lines. I used a 3B pencil on the ground. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Comments and questions are welcome!
