Hey, school is busy, keeping me busy, busy, so I'm not posting a finished painting right now or anything, just some stuff I drew yesterday.
For my Drawing for Animation class, we had to design a character based on a prompt. We could do a spaceman, a bear, or a schoolgirl. I figured that the spaceman would be too obvious for me (based on what I'm always doing) and the girl would be stretching myself too much. So I did a bear. These are some of my concepts. Well, the first couple are. Ha. Things got out of control later on and I drew some other bears that were barely bears. I left those in cuz some were kinda cool. When I get my final draft back I'll upload it so you can see what I ended up with and submitted.

This was my final concept before I finished it up:

Things were getting wild.

Bearzerker? I'd like to render this out and turn it into a cool 3D model or somefink.

A tank bear and a...
Yeah, I don't know. I do know that I should get some reference so next time I draw a tank it looks more tanky.


  1. The first one is SO precious! I love him so much! The second one looks like a high school mascot. Is the third one wearing a tattered loin cloth and a cluster of skulls on his hip? How chic. The rest... I don't even know what to say. You really let it go. Amelia style. But I can tell you that I'm proud of how clever you are with your puns. If we could just channel that you could make us millions on pinterest coming up with cute puns to go with DIY crafts.

    1. I'm glad you like my puns! I just want to have them spilling out of me. And yes, I hope you'll be even more pleased with some of these bears as I keep developing some of the ideas! We can only hope.

  2. I would like to say I am surprised by the latter bears but I am not! Sigh, even when you were little I would ask why everything had a weapon. You had no answer for me. I bet you still don't.
    However, these are nicely done and I like the way that your creativity took hold and you had fun. Some of these are worth further exploration! Keep working hard!

    1. Hi, ma. No, I don't have an answer for you. All I can say is sometimes they have weapons, sometimes they don't. It's not up to me, y'know? I'm currently working on developing some of these to a more finished level, but it's slow going...
