Draw the falling shadows with SKETCHMARKER SM-NG5 Neutral Gray 5, shading SKETCHMARKER SM-NG7 Neutral Gray 7. Add the contour to the bear cub.

You can show the fur with strokes, make stitches on clothes, draw laces. We outline the highlights and detail the lace, using a white gel pen.

It is better to outline the flower and leaves only in the shade to emphasize the planned character.
