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.

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:

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!

Made with thoughtART

Hope everyone likes it!!!  This is probably the most amazing adoptable you have ever seen, but please critique it anyway.


I had to think really hard to make this picture happen, it's a fairy princess who got eaten by a whale.

But then the whale discovers he's allergic to faerie princesses and dies.

This makes the whale very sad.

The end.



Starting bid for this dead magic fish is 5 million USD.

Auction ends next year.

Bid below, thank you!!(=

There's something I want to say first.

I've read a lot of people's reaction to the Spirit Day submissions yesterday. Mainly positive ones of people who think it's a good idea, but also quite some people who weren't all that happy about it.
"Submitting purple things isn't going to help those bullied people."
"You guys just draw these things to get attention."

And those people might be right in some ways - of course this won't stop bullying, a picture on the Internet doesn't change anything. But does that mean everyone who participates is either a naive kid thinking they are changing the world or an attention whore? I just don't see why people shouldn't be allowed to submit stuff like this. It's a community project, after all.

Of course people should always support others having a difficult time no matter when, but that doesn't mean it's bad to submit these pictures on a certain day. Just because people are only submitting it on a day that is about bullying doesn't mean they don't care.
Also I'm one day late, sorry about that.

Either way, I tried something different but I can't paint. x)
