Step 1: Draw an Outline

Draw a rough outline of your teddy bear, reduce the opacity, add a layer, then trace a more refined outline. Repeat this process as many times as you need until your final outline is perfect.

Step 4: Fur

Give your bear’s fur a sense of richness and texture by layering various tones of fur color. Use the brightest tones on the areas closest to your light source to add lighting.
