At this stage I added, or rather, I changed some of the stroke colors in the image after I added the Back circle & the eyes from Bear Stuff into my current layer in the layers panel.

Here I changed the fills for the eyes to white and face to tan, finally string the fill of the bears teeth to none instead of orange.

Here I Set the stroke co;ors for the tan to brown sections of the face to none so it looks more uniform.

Added a Rich Black Stroke with a weight of 3.6 Points, than I an orange fill with no stroke to three of the six intersecting points in the knot.
