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 2: Add Color
Color in your teddy bear outline in new layers. Change colors by selecting the color box in the menu bar.
Step 3: Add Shading
Add new layers above and insert shading with a thick, black brush. Then, soften and blend your shading into your drawing by reducing the opacity.
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.
Step 5: Final Shading
Add shading to your background by adding layers to the bottom and using a translucent spray brush.
