How to Draw a Cartoon Koala - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Time to draw a koala! Start by drawing in a circular figure for the head.

Step 2: At the top of the circle, off to each side, draw a dome for the ears. The lines can be a bit jagged for texture. Add a horizontal jagged line through the center of the domes.

Step 3: In the middle of the head, add two dots next to one another for the eyes!

Step 4: Now, in between the two eyes, add a large dot for the cute nose of the koala.

Step 5: Next, directly underneath the nose, add a very tiny curved line for the mouth.

Step 6: Now for the body. From the base of the left ear, draw a curved line downward and make sure it curves back upward at the end.

Step 7: Starting at the base of the chin a bit off to the right, add in a horizontal line and add little lumps at the end for the fingers. Underneath this horizontal line a bit further down, add a parallel line and connect it to the fingers you just added. Underneath the arms, creat a dome figure. Then, add another curved line upward through the center but do not connect it to the dome.

Step 8: Lastly, at the base of the koala's body, add a tuft of hair for the tail!
