Bear's bear by Hagge Bear's bear by Hagge
For :iconglacierbear:, by request, her prize for the "kind-of-contest"...
It's a style I've considered before, but never got into until she suggested it again.

One of many ongoing projects...^^;

Very cool idea. I like the way that you used the blur to make it look like a photograph to.

Yeah, I want to try either an orca or an eagle/raven motif, next. :)Actually, I will say this...this is not my concept...it's based off another artist, but he does his in more of a totemic motif, less realism...

I like the idea of an orca, though ravens are cool as well.

You used it to great effect. :D

That is amazing! Please do more of this style, and tell me how do you do it?
What medium? seems like computer but I keep thinking it's painted >.<

But this is a fantastic piece, well done!

Yeah, I'm thinking seriously about it...perhaps eagle/raven, or maybe wolf.

How do I do it? Draw, draw, draw, and when it warrants it, I use a photo (no, it's not cheating...how else can you learn to draw a subject, if you don't what it really looks like? Besides, when you've mastered it, you can draw it any way you want, right?)

And it is digital. I work with acrylics, but I don't have any acrylic work posted.

And thanks again.

To be more precise, how did you do the artwork itself? The colour itself, it's kinda vibrant. Did you just draw from photos and then finish the colour?

Thanks

Hm. Well, it varies. It depends on the subject. Landscapes start off as blobs of color, and are subject to mogrification.
People start off as line drawings.
Do you work with a tablet?

I endeavor to use colors as close to the photo as possible, and I just like vibrant colors, anyway. Or I try out color schemes.

Again, it depends on the subject. Most if not all my landscapes are made up. But I may borrow a color scheme off another picture, like Ala Kinkade.

Learning color schemes helps, too.

I plan to get a tablet soon, but I mostly work with the traditional media... just don't look at my art, not good >.< Heh, reason why I asked is because it just seems... so easy! But I know that artists put in hours into their work.

I'll try and apply with what you said... with water colours >.< Better than nothing I suppose.

Thanks ^.^

What I do on my tablet can't be applied to watercolor, unless there's a specific style you're going for. And if you've never worked with them, wc's can be pretty frustrating.(I worked with gouache, which is more forgiving.) By the same token, you can get some spiffy effects with them. Ray Harris Ching is one of the best, but that's my opinion.
I suggest you study the works of artists you admire, and see how they handle their medium.
Keep drawing.

Personally, I'm hooked on detail, but see, that's just my style.

Mhmmm...

Well, I'll keep that in mind. Gah, I don't really know my style o.O

Don't be afraid to experiment.

And realize that when something doesn't turn out the way you want, it ISN'T A MISTAKE! It's a Learning Experience! Remember you're training yourself.
The only mistake you may ever make is giving up.

welcome.
