Anatomy Tutorial: Bear by AddictionHalfWay Anatomy Tutorial: Bear by AddictionHalfWay
THIS IS A HUGE PICTURE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

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 :iconnotimpressedplz:


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.

Photography... not mine. Found on google e__e;;


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]
