Here's a few bear designs I did recently, as part of a large wall mural I did for a church in Alaska. I added my first very quick sketches.

The bears are great, Hans! I especially like the expression of the bear holding the teddy bear.

Very nice work. I love your roughs. It's funny because I'm just now finishing up a bear drawing myself. I'll post it so you can check it out.

Hey guys, yet again thanks for all the nice comments, It's what keeps me going:)

Milo, Gerald, Jampix and Henry: There's a painter team up there in Anchorage, Alaska right now painting and setting up everything. I'll see if I can get some photos when they're done. I did a whole bunch of other stuff for that church as well, that I might post later on.

Thanks again,
