Koala photo

Koala is a marsupial animal from Australia. It lives in the crowns of eucalyptus trees, feeding on bitter leaves , and rarely descends to earth as a bird or a monkey. The appearance of  Koala is widely known, because this creature resembles a small and cute  bear, Teddy Bear toy almost. To be true, we cannot say that we know a lot about it`s ways, but at least we can draw the image of a Koala. Here is the fisrst  tutorial -how to draw a Koala hanging on a branch.

The head of the Koala  is turned in our direction, so you can see its face. The ears are very large, with long hair. A forehead as big and wide . And with its button, rounded  eyes and  black rubber nose, Koala looks good-natured, cute and touching, and at the same time quite serious – try to portray it on your picture.
