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