A fairly fast drawing of a scared bear. One rough sketch followed by a cleaned up pencil trace. Then scanned and colored in photoshop.
I originally started with very rough sketches on note paper. I was more focused on trying to create a good silhouette at this stage.
However I was so focused on silhouette that I ended up stretching the far hind leg way too long. It reads better as a hind leg, but proportionately it makes for one looooong leg. As I was coloring it in, the defect started to yell out at me. So with some photoshop magic I pushed the leg back in the final version above.
