How to draw a Teddy Bear

We start with guide shapes. Draw them very lightly with a pencil. Later we are going to erase these guides. I have drawn them in color so it will be easier for you to see them. I recommend you use a regular pencil. Color pencil is harder to erase.

We start with the guide shapes

We use the guides to help us see the bear’s parts.


Let’s add Teddy’s head.

A face seems important.

Teddy needs ears.

The chest and arms are next.

Then it’s time to draw Teddy’s feet and legs.

Wow! I forgot to fill in my Teddy’s pupils, the dark part of his eyes.


Here is my pencil line art in black and white the way it might look on your paper. Nice and messy. Remember, we will erase all the lines we don’t need. Now we will pen over the art, then it will be time to erase the pencil lines.

Teddy is looking pretty good. The pencil lines are erased, and I am happy with my cartoon teddy bear. I am ready to sign my art.

Color if you wish. It is your art, enjoy!

Bonus: Fuzzy Teddy Bear

I thought Teddy would look cute all fuzzy and soft, so I re-drew him. This time with all his outside lines wavy. Now he looks super huggable!
