Forest – tempera
latest updates: bear
“Ós polar” are the catalan words for “polar bear”. Doing some tests with tempera few years ago, I was just trying with colours to get a good sky/snow/ice contrast… the bear just appeared from nowhere
Cave bear (Ursus spelaeus)
I did this one, 2 years ago, for an educational board for Bijambare reserve, which has 7 caves. It was an EC financed Project led by my(humbe)self. We did tourist paths within the longest cave (420 m), illumination, toilets, parking, Info-house, promo-materials, Info-boards, brochures, film, radio jingle, etc. We used photographs and technical drawings for everiting else, but there were no photos of the cave bear, and available illustrations were copyrighted, so I did it myself.
Not so long ago (in geological terms) such bears used to live there…
Bit of an unusual one this – not sure what I was thinking at the time! It’s a keyring, in case you were wondering.
Drawn in a Moleskin, scanned and coloured in Photoshop.
my weapon on choice was an edding 0.5 profipen. Just had an unbearable urge to draw this.
