I've been thinking about bears a lot today...I really like bears. I was also looking at the Biteyou collage/painting and wondering what the heck I can do to finish it. Maybe it needs bears!
I tried drawing a few bears -- and believe me, it took a long time. I finally looked at photos of bears and got a better idea about where I was going wrong. And of course, these will be bearish creatures not actual bears.
|These are two of the bearish creatures I drew...I did about ten of them...THEN I looked for inspiration...something just wasn't right.|
|I needed a roundier back end more movement for the legs. I cut out a version of the drawing.|
|I taped it to the horizon line -- but I needed something else...|
|...I love repetition, so how about a whole line of them? I traced around the cut out with a white Prismacolor pencil...not sure if I will keep them or not.|
|I like the idea of them...not sure if these are exactly what I want yet.|
Next will come a bunch of decisions...do I want to keep them in the first place...do I want them to be just a white outline of a black creature...should I fill them in with a solid color...should they maybe be just filled in with the interference blue paint that makes the glow around the orb...or maybe a different color of interference paint -- as if the glow is creating the illusion of them. So many questions.
