Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Panda" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle on the right side of the paper as a guide for the panda's head. It doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Inside the circle, draw two intersecting lines. These lines will help you place the panda's facial features later.
Step 3: On the bottom half of the main circle, draw a smaller circle as a guide for the panda's muzzle.
Step 4: Draw two arcs on top of the head as guides for the panda's ears.
Step 5: Draw two circles on the left side of the head as guides for the panda's body. Draw only a portion of the first circle since it sits behind the head. Pay close attention to the placement of the circles.
