Saturday Critters – Essence of Bear

Bear World Bear - Impressions - Soft Sketch 40 pct

This is a resident bear at Yellowstone Bear World in Rexburg, Idaho. I call the post “Essence of Bear” because I blended a drawing rendition of the original photograph with the photograph (at about a 20% drawing/80% original ratio) to bring out some of the features of the animal because the original photograph was like a silhouette of the bear with his muzzle.

    Hi, Sorry I haven’t been by in awhile. – I miss your posts and it would be great if you could add a Follow By E-Mail feature to your blog. Then people get updates when you post right to their e-mail.

    Anyway I like your bear shot very much. I’ve never seen a bear in the wild before. Don’t think I want to get to close to them either.

    Also below you have the coolest artistic truck photo. Loved it.

    I couldn’t get anyone to go to Bear World with me while we were up there. We’re going to have to coordinate a trip up there and maybe I can tag along with you guys. Maybe when Georgie is older she’ll want to go with her Grammy.

    Nicely done! Love this! And by the way, you can’t be unaware of the irony of a thumbnail of a bear with Yogi’s Den written underneath it….just saying. 🙂
