Grandpa Bear was the first teddy bear I was ever given, when I was less than a year old, and he’s had several names. First he was just ‘Bear’, then Cuddles Bear, back to Bear, and finally Grandpa Bear because I figured that suited such a dignified patriarch of a teddy bear. 😉
This drawing is in a light graphite pencil, with colored pencil for his yellow fur. I tried to mix coloring and texture techniques here, and I’m not sure it worked that well.
Do you still have something that you were given when you were very young?
