How to Draw a Cartoon Bear

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

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.



Time needed: 25 minutes.

    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
