bear king by luve bear king by luve
oh my god guys READ THE DESCRIPTIONS. its not iofur from the golden compass.

it is, however, the same basic concept, a bear king. wooo.

this thing has been sitting in my sketchbook for ages...because i didn't want to put the gold in. finally did it in about three seconds.
i'm a lazy ass.

between reading the 'bears famous invasion of sicily' and seeing the new long trailer for 'the golden compass'...bear kings everywhere! they're such a tempting subject :]

edit: SOLD.

Pretty good. I sorta like how this one's dressed fancily, but is still a gruff animal beneath it. Cool pic.

It is a tempting subject, indeed. What's up with the suspicious attitude? He seems like he's hiding something.. or is that just my impression? Lovin' the crown too, good job.

Oooh! I really love this! I especially like how it looks so much like a woodblock print. Plus, the bold coloring is beautiful. I also love the expression on the face of the bear standing right behind the king. Looks like he's up to something sneaky and underhanded. Look out, King!! And, although this sounds totally ridiculous (well, no more ridiculous than the rest of my comment, I guess ... *sweatdrop*:D), I adore the candlesticks in the background. The background for this one is so minimal, and yet, it sets the scene perfectly. I'm so glad you decided to share this one!

I love this character design. The rings on his claws especially.
The stark coloring style works really well too. I like the rich tones of the king against the more subtle background a lot, and how thickly you applied it all.

That was an empty comment box. Sorry... Anyway. Your art looks alot like that one british cartoon/ book series with all the animals. You know, the one with the hedgehog that wears a frumpy dress and aprin and the frog has a tail coat and leggings?

Glad I'm not the only one who gets lazy over dumb little art things. I'm sure I'd be the same way. Still, the gold really made the finishing touch.

I love how the other bears and background are so muted. I wish I could figure out how to do that.

So cute while so serious! He does seem shapeless a bit with that regal cloak of his but I must applaud for the whole scenery - Limited as it is it´s very also very impressive.

Teeheehee! Their expressions made me giggle! ^^ Go Bear King!

Not overly sure about the colour in this one... a little dark and murky in places, but then i'm one to talk with my awful colour choices.

And I know exactly what you mean about not being bothered to do the last little bit of a painting.
