With this photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to draw a cute teddy bear. The first thing to do is to create a 250 by 250 pixel sized document in Photoshop, with white background. Create a brown circle, using the elliptical marquee tool and on a new layer, and then fill the selection with a darker brown on another new layer. Feather the selection by 10 pixels, by going to select/feather. Contract the selection by 10 pixels, by going to selection/modify/contract. Now delete the area, of the darker brown layer, that’s selected. You should end up with a puffy dark brown border. Make another new layer and then create a white circle on it for the left eye. Zoom in to 300% and set the foreground colour to light grey and the background to black. Create an oval selection and then make a radial gradient, completing the left eye. Zoom back out and then duplicate the layer, moving it over to the right.
Set the foreground colour to a light brown and the background colour to a darker tone and then create a large radial gradient for the snout. Zoom in to 300% again and set the foreground colour to a dark grey and and the background to black. Create a radial gradient for the nose. Make a black circle to the left of the nose, nudge the selection to the left and up by 2 pixels and then delete the selected area.
Eraser any parts of the curved line that’s overlapping the nose or outside of the snout area. Duplicate the curved line and flip it horizontally, by going to edit/flip/horizontal, and then move it to the right hand side. Create the left sided ear by creating a subtle radial gradient and then a smaller one using peach colours. Move the ear slightly under the head, duplicate it and move it over to the right hand side.
Next create a large, subtle radial gradient on a new layer, for the body. For the left paw, create a dark brown oval, and then a rectangle about half way down the oval. Use the same peach colours to create the palm and then use the transform tool to rotate layer.
Duplicate the left paw, move it to the bottom and then use the elliptical marquee tool to create a curved ending.
Finally, duplicate each paw again, flip them horizontally and move them over to the right. And now hopefully you will have drawn a cute teddy bear with this Photoshop tutorial!
