GRID STEP: You can print out the base construction lines and start drawing on tracing paper, or you can draw the grid layout yourself using the following steps.

  • 1) Draw a rectangle that will define the conditional proportions and boundaries of the chosen drawing.
  • 2) From the middle of the rectangle, draw one vertical and one horizontal line equally dividing the shape.
  • 3) Draw another horizontal line equally dividing the upper half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a horizontal line equally dividing the bottom half of the rectangle.
  • 4) Draw a vertical line equally dividing the left half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a vertical line equally dividing the right half of the rectangle.

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the picture. Draw two ovals for the panda’s head and its body. Draw a smooth guideline for its head.


Step 2

With smooth lines, add the shape of the neck and mark the center of the back.


Step 3

Draw guidelines for the legs. Define the features of the panda’s face.


Step 4

Outline the shape of the legs, snout, and nose.


Step 5

Draw the mouth, ears, and toes.

Finish with the soles, the face, and the ears. Define the eyes with two small circles.


Step 7

Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to details.


Step 8

Contour the giant panda, trying to vary the thickness and blackness of the line. Add more details and the ground. Erase all guidelines.
