WOW, nice form on the bear!! This is a beautiful little piece, James!! And hey, I recognize those brushes; I downloaded them from someone on DA :DMight I also advise that perhaps if you want to include this into your portfolio, maybe add something on a separate layer that the bear is lookiing at? Develop a story for this illustration (advise from Titmouse people to me) !!
did you draw this with your beary own bear arms? :D
