Beginning the Bears
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I thank God for my family and friends, my art and how happy it makes me, and the joy of living in the awesome state of Alaska. There's no place like it, and it inspires me every day to be the best artist I can be. I'm so blessed.
Now that I've finished the background scenery, blocked in the fireweed and put the base color on all the outfits, it's time to start on the bears. Here I've added some shadow and expression to the polar bear since it's the one who insisted on being brought to life first.
