Brown Bear FINISHED

Hi all,

Well, I guess I'll share a WIP for a change. Upon finding a wonderful reference photo in our Reference Image Library by Luv2shoot (thank you! ), I couldn't resist tackling this animal in scratchboard. It is 5x7 inches, and I've been using a #11 X-Acto Knife, which will likely be my only tool of choice for this piece. All the peaks and points of fur are like a complicated puzzle. This one is going to be fun. I hope you'll join me as I go along. C&C welcome. Thanks for looking!

Re: Brown Bear WIP

Ah, finally, I have an update to post. Since I was away on a vacation to Colorado last week, I didn't have a chance to work on this. But now the eyes are in place. They look a bit mean in the reference photo, and I wanted to keep them that way - for looking cuddly from a distance, I've always thought bears have mean-looking eyes. I haven't enjoyed working on a scratchboard this much in a long time.

C&C welcome. Thank you for looking.

Jenna, this is coming along so well. Love the "mean" eyes.

Re: Brown Bear WIP

Here's some progress on the bear. The snout has finally made an appearance. This bear has so many different textures in the fur...it's really keeping me on my toes. But then, what else would you expect from a bear?

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking!
