Ursa, King of the Grizzlys by LeeDassin Ursa, King of the Grizzlys by LeeDassin
It is one thing to draw a King stag, it's size is seen in it's antlers. But for a Bear it must be compared against the only thing that will do it justice, another bear.

This is Ursa the Grizzly Bear King, shown alongside a normal Bear of it's own kind. It is only now that one can truely appreciate the size and power of the great King.

We meet the great King in chapter 5 of Trophy Huntin' [link]

The background to this was minimal, you can still see fingerprints from where I smudged the greylead- but this was my first ever drawing of a Bear so I was focused more on the size and power of the Bears themselves. Enjoy :)

'is awed' You did well for not having drawn a bear before! And yeah, the comparison with the 'regular sized' bear helps give it more context. You did great with the pose and physique! And the shading's cool too :) Good work, I hope you do more soon.

very well done! You might want to consider studying the bear anatomy, just so you don't make mistakes. Although for the first time doing a bear it's very good. But the smaller bears mouth seems a bit to pointy and it's nose a bit big.
I love the mouth that is open it's seems flawless. =D

Yeah, I improvised on the turning bear :P The mouth open one I had a picture reference, thanks for the tip. I will look more into Bear anatomy because I wish to draw more of that Chapter with Ursa and his chase of the two other Kings.

Thank you :)

haha, I do that too sometimes. That would be so cool to show the chase between them. Ah now I can't wait to see what you draw!:woohoo:
