Daily Quick Sketch: Polar Bear
Today's quick sketch was inspired by the snow storm happening outside. I always enjoy drawing polar bears. It just seems that you can get more character with a polar bear than any other type of bear.

I always like to exaggerate the neck length of a polar bear. The bulky body is fun to draw too, the bulkier the better it seems. In this particular character design, I really like the flattop head/snout and the small eyes that simply rest on top of the head.
