I was about to create a cat anatomy tutorial but then I saw a few new bear submissions.
I'm no perfect artist but I notice a lot of mistakes people make when drawing bears that are easily corrected. What's worst is a lot of people making the worst mistakes are very popular people that many look up to. Infuriating
Hopefully this will help out some people with drawing bears or else interest some people into bears. They're a fun animal. I love them.
I'll do cats later. It will probably be WAAYY shorter eve... sorry its so long.

EDIT: Want to know more about bears? Then I'd suggest trying to watch the National Geographic 1 hour documentary Explorer: Ultimate Bear because it is MAD SKILLZ HELPFUL for (black/grizzly/polar) bear behavior and anatomy.
Here's a 3 minute clip from the documentary: [link]
Website with photo-information and skeletal/muscle information on bears: [link]
I'm a canine and rabbit artist, and I have two distinct styles for both animals. I hope to add more animals into my "arsenal" as I continue to draw, and I guess a bear is my first big step.
A bear is going to appear once in my comic for the first chapter that I upload, so I want to make sure I get it right.
Thank you so much, AddictionHalfWay.
Can't wait to see more.
I ddn't now that bears can't bend theyr neck like this... :I
