More fun with the refound sketch book. This one is based off a couple different pics. I like the flecks of snow.

9x 6 pencil and white coloured pencil on brown paper.

Hi! I absolutely love this sketch. It's stunning! I made a wallpaper for my website using your bear. I was wondering if it would be okay for me to put it up. If it is, I will (of course) credit you on my website for the sketch, and include a link here for you. The wallpaper relates to a story I am writing about Scandinavian folklore.

As long as you don not cut off my signature or claim you did it, no problem.

great work and style! can you tell me what brand of paper you used? finding off white sketchbooks are hard.

The brand says Utrecht and they come in a number sizes, spiral bound. I've seen them in a number of art supplies stores so they shouldn't be too hard to find. I hope.

Beautiful! What brand colored pencil are you using? If you don't mind me asking :) I've been thinking about gettin into similar styled sketching, I've just been lost as to what kind of pencil to get that would transfer white the best :)

I mostly use prismacolours though I think this one was done with a derwent I picked up somewhere. Harder than a prisma but it worked out well for this paper.

Oh ok, Thanks! I may go pick me up a white prisma and see if I can find my tablet with this kind of paper.. I moved 2 years ago and it hasn't come out of a box yet :XD:

Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you again for introducing me to the brown paper. [link] I actually did this on my birthday but then remembered that you did a polar bear as well. *smacking forehead

It's very nice, I like the brown paper medium, and good coloring,

...but if you don't mind me noticing I subtly see some of the features, such as the eyes, parts of the muzzle and brow look a bit more wolflike than bearlike. That's probably because you draw alot more wolves than bears. I draw mostly bears, and I notice when I try to draw a wolf, his features end up looking more bearlike than wolf-like. It's funny, isn't it?

Love the softness of this one, especially the fur. Great choice of subject matter, its a good contrast to the warm coloured paper.

Ooo, that's lovely.
I love the minimalism in the lines that hint of the underlying form.
Great work:clap:
