The Beginnings of Bear.


Hi Everyone, this is another coincindence for me as I happen to have just started illustrating a story my friend has written. I've never done this before so I'm treating it a bit like a college assignment and hopefully will end up with artwork suitable to send to publishers! Here's a page of studies I made of one of the main characters. He's called 'Bear.'

bear is so cute and I love all the faces of bear he's adorable. I can't wait to see what you will do with him. Colors, situations, and scenes. This is really a great start Jess.

Great start, Jess! I love all the faces, I'd like to see more full body examples of Bear doing different things and from different perspectives. Very good renderings.

Oh, bears are one of my favorite characters! You got a lot of different face expressions and angles, it will be fun to see more of this little guy!

How fun. I really like the two at the bottom -- their expressions bring them to life. I also like the one hugging his knees.
