Winnie the Pooh and his friends have long been popular children's favourites. Children's characters often look easy to draw, but drawing them accurately is one thing, and getting their expressions right is quite another. The "Pooh" characters should be drawn in a way which makes them appealing to children, rather than being technically brilliant drawings by themselves.

Things you need
- Baby Pooh characters
Draw from the top of the character's head and work downwards. For many, facial features are the most difficult things to draw. Portraying the head and face of the "Baby Winnie the Pooh" characters accurately will, however, give you confidence when attempting to complete the rest of the drawing.
Capture the more youthful expressions on the "Baby Winnie the Pooh" characters by concentrating on the eyes. Make the eyes twice as big on the "Baby Winnie the Pooh" characters than they are on the older "Winnie the Pooh" animals. This will give them a younger appearance. It's a very simple technique, but it will transform a face. The facial proportions of Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, and Heffalump are radically different. So when you're drawing the nose and mouth of the animals, or in Heffalump's case the trunk, check your drawing with the characters after every pencil stroke.
Draw the bodies of the animals. Be generous with drawing the curves. These animals are popular with children in no small part because of their cuddly bodily appearance and rounded limbs.
Note the details on the characters bodies and their clothes, whether it's Tigger's striped tail, or Piglet's striped outfit.
Finish your drawing with touches of light and shade. This should be used sparingly, because too much light and shade will overshadow the striking appearance of the individual animals.
Tips and warnings
- Study the characters in a group, if you plan to draw more than one character. Take note of the similarities.
- The "Baby Winnie the Pooh" characters are not to be drawn as how an adult wants to see them, but with consideration of how a child wishes to.
