Transcript

This video will show you step by step how to draw this panda.

As with all computer science problems, it's important to break a big problem into smaller pieces that are easier to solve.

Drawing this entire panda may seem hard, but drawing just the head, eyes, body, or feet is much easier.

To start, draw the head.

Click the ellipse tool, set the color to a light gray color, now click and drag to draw an oval which will be the panda's head.

Next, draw the eyes.

Notice how the panda's eye is made up of three different ovals.

Draw the first black mask.

Then the white eyes.

And lastly, the black pupil.

Use the zoom button to make it easier to draw small details.

After all three ovals are drawn, hold the shift key on your keyboard and click each one to select all of them.

Use the handle to rotate the eye a little.

After you're happy with this eye, click the group tool so all three of these ellipses stay together.

Now you can either draw the second eye the same way you drew the first one or you can save yourself some work by duplicating the first eye and flipping it.

Then click the second eye and use the flip tool to flip it.

Next, draw the nose.

Draw the mouth.

To finish the head, add some ears.

To make the ears go behind the head, click the back tool.

Nice! The head of the panda is now complete.

Now it's time to draw the body.

Start with a black ellipse.

Add a light gray ellipse on top for its belly.

Use the reshape tool on the belly until it's the shape you want.

Then hold shift and click on both ellipses to select them.

Group them using the group tool and send them behind the head using the back tool.

Next, draw the arms and legs.

Remember to use the group and duplicate tools to save some time.

That's it! You've finished the panda!

Now all that's left is to animate it to make it dance!

Now it's your turn to draw and animate the panda.
