The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a big circle as a guide for the polar bear's head. To draw the circle, first make four marks to determine its height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a bowl or a lid. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: Draw a long, curved, horizontal line across the circle as a guide to help you place the polar bear's facial features later. Draw this line slightly higher than the middle. Add a curved, vertical line on top, right for another guide.
Step 3: Draw two small circles on top of the horizontal line as guides for the polar bear's eyes. Pay attention to how small these circles are in relation to the head and to their distance from the vertical guide line.
Step 4: Draw another circle below the horizontal line as a guide for the polar bear's muzzle. Use the four-marks method again to draw this circle. The bottom edge of this circle should overlap the edge of the big circle.
Step 5: Inside the muzzle, draw a small oval as a guide for the polar bear's nose. This oval should be pretty big in relation to the muzzle, and it should be close to the right edge.
