Bear Portrait by tedikuma Bear Portrait by tedikuma
This is part of an assignment for my Digital Drawing class.
We had to do a 'traditional' portrait and a 'non-traditional' portrait.
The 'traditional' one looks like crap, so I'm not posting it.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-05-14
A bear has never looked more at home in a green t-shirt and headphones before. Simplistic style, bright colors and woody textures, Bear Portrait is a a fun and calming illustration! Don't miss out on the rest of `tedikuma's brilliantly varied gallery! ( Suggested by GH-MoNGo and Featured by y2jenn )

nice painting there in CS I gotta ask though how did you get such clean lines? I assume you use the pen tool? Sorry Im just learning to digital paint myself :P Cute though I picture him listing to something a little hollow. I mean..he is listing to a tree stump lol

Yeah, I used the pen tool in Illustrator. I've actually stopped doing my lines that way... It's a lot of work. I like using dip pens and scanning them in a lot more. =)

Absolutely adorable! This makes me think of Sunbears at the zoo. They climb up the trees and lounge there like that and stare or nap.
Gorgeous texture and adorable idea.
Congrats on the DD!

It's very striking. The pose and conceptual side of it is boggling and the colors are so vibrant. It's really fantastic. Even the little things, like the lineart is really smooth, are really great.
