Finally, add colors to your panda. Pandas are mostly monochromatic, meaning that you’re going to be working with black, white, and shades of gray. (While not closely related to the giant panda, seek out a reference of a red panda if illustrating the reddish-brown fur of this cat-sized creature is your aim.)
And don’t mistake the use of monochrome for lack of detail. Plenty of nuances and textures can be added. “In the white areas, use a light warm gray, and then in the black areas use a medium-toned, cooler gray,” artist Terryl Whitlatch suggests. “It will give a nice contrast in the final result.”
