How to draw polar bear cub. Learn to draw a polar bear cub step by step images along with easy to follow instruction. Polar bears live in one of the planet’s coldest environments and depend on a thick coat of insulated fur, which covers a warming layer of fat. Fur even grows on the bottom of their paws, which protects against cold surfaces and provides a good grip on ice. The bear’s stark white coat provides camouflage in surrounding snow and ice.

Most of animals and creatures are different in shapes and forms depending on their families. One of the easiest way to approach the drawing is identify simple shapes within the body. It will help to define the main parts of each animal by breaking it down into simple geometry shapes.
The polar bear is the largest terrestrial carnivore, being more than twice as big as the Siberian tiger. Adult males weigh 350–680 kg (770–1500 lbs) and measure 2.4–3 m (7.9–9.8 ft) in length. Compared with its closest relative, the brown bear, the polar bear has a more elongated body build and a longer skull and nose. However, the feet are very large to distribute load when walking on snow or thin ice and to provide propulsion when swimming. The polar bear is often regarded as a marine mammal because it spends many months of the year at sea.
