Easy How to Draw a Cartoon Bear Tutorial and Cartoon Bear Coloring Page

Learn how to draw a cartoon bear with a fun winter hat and scarf. The shapes are simple and lots of fun to decorate.

Cartoon Bear Drawing

What makes a drawing more of a cartoon than a regular drawing? Well, in my opinion, it’s when the features become more of a symbol of what they are, and not so much what they really look like. For instance, the eyes on this bear are just two dots, and the mouth a curved line. The shapes and proportions are all there, just very simplified.

When the purpose is more about making a fun, seasonal drawing (hello hat and scarf!) exploring the world of cartoon drawing is a great way for young artists to get started. They can spend more of their time on the creative additions instead of detailed features.

How to Draw an a Cartoon Bear Materials

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tip erasers, especially when erasing leftover pencil lines after tracing.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.

    Ok, it was good but…The brim part looks like the step before it there’s no brims for pattern. When you color it there is, but steps don’t show it :0. Thank you
