Ursa Minor Constellation


Ursa Minor, "the small bear" or "little dipper" constellation

 Ursa Major and Ursa Minor were mother and son who were transformed into bears, grabbed by their tails, and swung both into the heavens to live among the stars. The strength of the throw caused their short stubby tails to become elongated.

Here's the second Constellation! I had to do several studies to get the little bear right, it was unexpectedly so much harder than drawing his mother :XD: You can see all these studies and more on my twitter and instagram (links below) I'm considering drawing other constellations, what do you guys think?
