How to Doodle Bears:

Okay y’all, in this tutorial I’ll be showing you how to draw bears in a really cute doodle style.

Step one:

I always start by sketching with a pencil. Here I’ve got a 4B MONO J pencil. I like sketching with B pencils since they’re so soft.

To doodle the bears, I start with a rounded rectangle for the body. Next, add on 2 half circles for the ears. For the arms, you’ll want 2 bean shapes. The legs are ovals placed at the bottom of the rectangle, as shown below.

Step two:

After I’m happy with how my bear doodle looks, I go back over the outline of the bear with a MONO Drawing Pen, and erase the pencil lines.

Below I also show a 2nd bear example, this cute bear is sitting down.

How to Color the Bears:

I wanted to create a small bear postcard to send to a friend, so I used the steps above to draw out a few bears onto a 4×6″ mixed media paper.

Step one:

To color in your bear doodles, Color just along the inside of the outline using a Dual Brush Pen.

Step two:

Next, you’ll take the Colorless Blender Pen, and work the color in from the outside. The Blender picks up the color and creates a very soft blend.

Step three:

Add details using the fine tip of the TwinTone Markers in matching colors. I added little dots and dashes to give my bears “fur”.

Then to finish up my bear postcard, I used a Dual Brush Pens to doodle vines around my bears, filling in the white space.

ANYONE can doodle these cute bears! I think they would be super cute on a handmade card, or you could even create a bear themed spread in your task journal!
