Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist and today we're going to draw a koala bear in a branch. So first of all we're going to draw our branch so here's our branch that comes down like so. It's got a little piece like that and then the bear is going to be here so I'm not going to fill in the rest of the branch yet. Now our koala bear has this kind of big round head. He's got these sort of floppy ears on the side kind of like so and his face comes down, they're so cute, comes up and you can connect those ears to the sides and they've got these sort of eyebrow areas, almost human looking eyes and they have like a big kind of a nose on the front and sort of just give him a little smile. Yes, they are very cute animals but from what I understand, they can be quite vicious. I'm not sure if that's true or not and they've got these sort of you know, humany paw hands that come out and then they've got this nice kind of front like a, I don't know what you call that, a man, no not a mane, like a, just a furry part in the front, it's almost like a collar I guess, like one of those old timey collars just like that in the front. And then they've got a leg that comes up and around like that and then these cute little feet that come out like that and connect around and we can start to bring our branch back in and show a little bit of clinging to the branch there. It's got this other arm that's going to come out and connect and then his other leg is going to be on the other side, like that you're not really going to be able to see it too much. And yeah, and you can go back in if you want to with your white and you can just add a little bit of color and shading and things like that just to give it a little bit of fullness and of course you're welcome to color your koala bear any color you'd like though I think that they're classically kind of a tan color and that is how you draw a koala bear on a branch.
