Painting a Cuddly Toy in Oils

Well I guess the most important thing about painting a soft toy like this would be the texture.  You want to make it look soft and floppy.  I started by just blocking in the darks and highlights.  Then with a soft, round brush, dabbed over the whole toy following my undercoat of dark and light tones.  Folds will be soft - no hard lines.  The lone arm hanging down and the fingers depressing the soft body helps to give the impression of a soft and limp toy.
