The teddy bear has been one of the most popular soft toys since the 20th century. It was at this time that the mass production of soft toys in general and, of course, teddy bears, which are most in demand among children, was launched. In Europe and America, this toy is called “Teddy” in honor of President Theodore Roosevelt. It is believed that it was in his honor that the first soft bear cubs were named.
This toy is made of high quality faux fur with a long nap. The wool of milky or beige color made of plush material is unusually soft and pleasant to the touch. Small black eyes and a large blue nose are the distinguishing feature of the cubs of this brand. Inside, the toy is stuffed with padding polyester—it is an almost weightless hypoallergenic filler, which makes the bear very soft.
In this lesson, you will practice drawing geometric shapes such as ovals and arcs. Also note that in the process of drawing a simple teddy bear, it is important for you to follow the rules of symmetry, that is, the right side of your drawing should look like a mirror image of the left side. If you want to start drawing this simple teddy bear right now, then you can prepare all the necessary art supplies and start drawing. I wish you to enjoy the creative process and get an excellent result of our work.
