Polar Bear

I started browsing the web for inspiration, this isn't all of it but I just wanted to give you guys an idea of what I was looking for. I looked at what other illustrators were creating, I took what shapes I could from the photos I grabbed from my Google search. A bit challenging since I dont think bears have a lot of shapes in their skeletal structure.

I sketched this trying to find continuous lines and shapes, it was difficult trying to make a simple sketch resemble a polar bear. After I scanned it in and started fleshing some of the shapes out I quickly realized that it looked like a lion more than a bear. I made the nose bigger and the snout wider in an attempt to make it resemble my target animal.

Here's what I came up with! I'm open to suggestions and advice, looking forward to seeing what all of the other students make! Have fun everyone!
