Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the picture. Define the main proportions of Teddy’s figure and draw the shape of its head.

Step 2

Outline Teddy’s body. Mark where the eyes, ears, and legs will be.

Step 3

Draw the shapes of its legs.

Step 4

Add guidelines for Teddy’s feet. Draw in detail its nose and ears.

Step 5

Draw Teddy’s eyes, nose, mouth, belly, and the pads on its feet. Refine the shape of its ears.

Step 6

Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to the details. Add the claws and stitches.

Contour the bear, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Draw the details carefully. Outline a shape for the blanket on which Teddy is seated. Erase all the guidelines.
