Okay, so some of you know that I made a recent move to the mountains. The Black Bears outnumber the humans by at least 2 to 1 around here and inspired me to dig out my sketch pad.

Your drawing is faaaabulous... love the eyes and the shaggy fur... you did good! Hopefully you will share more... I find animals challenging to draw... HOWEVER, let me say, if I saw a Bear, IN MY YARD... I would be both thrilled and chilled, I watch National geographic channel, and they show Bear attacks and I was horrified... stay safe... ;)

Fortunately, black bears are not typically aggressive and especially ones that live in populated areas. The other day a runner came by our house and we knew for a fact that there had been a bear walking that way and she said she had just slowed to a stop and they walked by each other. OMG. I would never do that. One day we came around the corner from walking the dogs and one was in the bed of my husband's pickup and another stood up and walked over to my car and was standing up looking in to see what he could see. Very 'human' pose--freaky!

Believe me, I don't go anywhere near them. I follow the ranger rules. TALK LOUD, STAND UP TALL, and back the [email protected]#$ away slowly :)

Make a copy of your drawing .... then play with color pencils over your pencil strokes... that is how I got the courage to try color... ;)

yeah that would be great to see...but there is something about pencil and paper that gives the artist and the image a realism that i think is lost in all the new media tools out there..for me the art is in the physical process and interpretation that is created...bit old school me thinks but when i see a pic like that it totally catches my eye...what medium were you thinking of..

I was thinking about colored pencils. I am always AMAZED at what Abi does with colored pencils.
