Start by drawing a circle on the right side of the paper. This will form the baby koala’s head.
Draw the baby koala’s ears.
Draw the baby koala’s hand, body, leg and tail.
Add the facial features by sketching the eyes and nose.
Draw a big circle beside the baby koala’s head. This will form the mummy koala’s head. And enclose the ears, using short, connected curved lines.
Draw the mummy koala’s hand, body and leg, just like the baby koala.
Draw two large circles for the eyes. Draw a smaller circle within each, and shade between the two. And draw the nose like a teardrop shape and shade it.
Add details to the koala’s body, hand and leg by drawing small irregular teardrop shapes.
Draw the tree branch that the koala is clinging to. And add some leaves on it.
Color your mummy koala, baby koala and the tree branch. And these animal are generally grey.
