EDIT: xD This is my first polar bear and I had no background on a lot of the anatomical errors I made so I apologize but I know my errors! Haha ^-^;

*Also, for those who see this deviation any time before New Years of 2013- January 1, 2013- well know that if you submit your very own awareness art of polar bears during this month of December, then you are in for a chance at a month-long feature of your awareness work! :heart: So hurry for this chance!*

There are only 20,000-25,000 of these bears left in the wild...

And even fewer numbers as time passes

The Polar Ice Caps have been melting faster than anyone's anticipated in the past decade alone. This threatens many species of animals that live in the poles. Exactly how fast are they melting? Click to find out

One of the unfortunate list of animals who's existence is threatened is the Polar Bear. Although many might not give a second thought when looking at these animals, as formidable and threatening they may seem on the small scale compared to us, there numbers grow small in the big picture as their homelands wash away into the sea...

It might be hard to imagine a world without a particular species but this popular bear known for its white coloration and impressive size might just be one of those animals who centuries or even decades later, might not be around for future generations to see...

Main Threats
:bulletred: The melting ice caps have posed a threat to polar bears for many years now. Since this is a huge issue not many of us can directly contribute to fixing, it's also something that poses as a potential problem not easily corrected in the time needed to save the dying animals who are directly affected by them.

How You can Help
:bulletgreen: Going green is the easiest way for many- and most- people! From flipping the light switches off when you're not using them to conserving water when brushing your teeth and making sure to not let it just run while not in use- helping can be as easy as that! Because it's the unnatural resources we use that ultimately burn all the fossil fuels causing global warming!
:bulletgreen: There are countless organizations that help with animals like the Polar Bear! Whether you're old enough to work in the field or not, it's always great to learn more about them!

Picture Symbolism & Description:
Well haha I definitely spent a while making this and I do quite like the outcome though I'm not fully satisfied at hte final execution of the background and such but overall the concept I believe turned out the way I liked it to! The back part of the bear is meant to symbolize a sort of 'melting away' as its right foot has a chunk of it missing because I purposely made its hindquarters composed of well, glaciers in a sense. The front of the bear is meant to represent what we see and also what's slowly sapping out of the animal itself as a species- it's life. As for the 'stepping out' of the frame. Well, let's just say their fate is in our hands and they're doing their best at calling out for us and it is now our choice at what we can and will do to help.

OH AHA AND this is ANTHRO xD
~~~~~
Hey btw guys, Capu's updated ref will be out shortly!
I simplified his design, the only part I took away was the stripes in his ears but his colors I reduced so now there are only 6 total. I gave him a new bandanna accessory of sorts! :aww:
And overall, warmed up his colors ;D

But yes~! It's final now haha :3 I wasn't very fond of the almost cluttered appearance the previous had just because it had a few more colors that really were similar xD
~~~~~

Anywho!
Happy Valentines Day!
I totally wanted to just get with the bandwagon and have an excuse to draw some small art xD

But haha! Just for me to send to some friends but anyone can send this too if you'd like xD!

This was so rushed amgg xD Time to go back to my essay.
Hey, thanks matt for the tips on how to make capu look cute k

Ah yes, enjoy! :D
Aha this is nothing special though xD eee

The answer is No.
That's because all cats that are microwaved either come out half alive and traumatized, or dead.

Don't believe me? Google/Youtube it if you dare.
Here's some articles to start you off..
www.dailymail.co.uk/news/artic...
www.dailymail.co.uk/news/artic...
abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?sec...

I'm starting the summer off with an animal abuse poster and journal...

Anyway, I apologize I'm sick at the moment haha and not in the right mindset to write too much, but the fact is. If you really want to buy a pet, please sterilize your pet. Unless you're a breeder who knows what you're doing, unlike puppy mills and the like, you're just bringing lives into this world where some may end up like this.

I didn't know there were people in this world who would be cruel enough to microwave cats until just recently, and even then had a hard time believing it.
But what makes them any different than us?
Try microwaving yourself for a change, to anybody who doesn't give a care in the world.
Or better yet, just imagine your mother putting you in a human-sized microwave.

The analogy?
Someone you thought loved you turns around and tries to kill you while taking pleasure in watching you die for no valid reason.

I don't know how to express it properly--how much this disgusts me, but it happens and there's no way it's going to stop unless everyone agrees this isn't right and does something about it.

If you're some random kid or person viewing/reading this, thinking about how sad it is that a) innocent animals are dying and b) you can't do anything to help.
Well I know how you feel because that's what I used to think.
But ignoring the world's problems doesn't get anything done.

I started a group, one of many, with the intention of bringing together all efforts on dA to spread the word and inspire others to take a stand.

So that's why.. if you

And for the record haha, I'm not even a professional artist let alone able to draw many things, and I don't even really like the outcome of this xD
But if it's moved you in anyway, then my goal with this has been reached! And as long as you make the effort, it'll count :)

Just don't forget, they're human too in a sense they can think and feel pain and worst of all, betrayal.
:) Thanks for your time!

I've never had strong feelings for Valentine's Day and at first I thought that the whole dA's Valentine Exchange thing was cheesy and stupid. After receiving a couple of valentine notes myself I changed my mind, it's actually a pretty sweet idea. 

So have an unusually sentimental Machete. With pink ribbons and a rose for you.
Just because.

Happy Valentine's Day, folks! :heart:
