Fighting Bears

28 comments
Again, here's another one for Brother Bear. It goes along with my explorations of the animals in the land.

This drawing was drawn with Prisma Pencil on Clearprint vellum.

This particular image made it to the Making-Of book, but it was reproduced so tiny that it wasn't worth the ink! So, here it is, a little larger so as to see how I figured out the structure of the bears.

This is sweeeeeeeet man. Love the anatomy of the head and body, just amazing man!

garymyers said...

I can practically hear them roar!
I love tension with the rippling muscles, the exposed teeth with the dangly bottom lip, the angle of the heads,...
You captured the moment perfectly

Bobby Pontillas said...

Hell yeah! I remember this image in the Art of Book. IMO one of the strongest images in it.

Dave said...

Awesome! This is one of my favourite drawings in the entire book! Glad to see a larger version :)

Shuku said...

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh. That's just -gorgeous-. Fighting bears! Can just hear 'em going at each other...

Happy art fix before accompanying student for vocal exam!

Wow, such a powerful moment, beautifully done!

Per H said...

So damn brilliant! Lines, shadows, rhythm, composition.
Here in Sweden a friend of mine was killed by a bear a couple of weeks ago.

Nathan Lindsay said...

love the anatomy and action in this shot.

...you know if you made your OWN book, you could print the images any size you want. we're all holding money and waiting.

Mark Behm said...

I love the shapes and rhythms in this one.

Ken said...

wow. love it. the lines, the dynamics, the form, everything.

And bears are awesome creatures

I can totally see your influences in the final film. When Kinai fights the Koda's mom, and she's represented as a monster, your insightful anatomy studies show through. The way fur moves on skin, which slides over flexing muscles. It's magic. And these studies have all of that. Yay for good vis dev!

Anna said...

Really well done, you capture the action very nicely. I can see the swift movements, really awesome !

David Colman said...

regardless of the lack of notoriety....its one of my favorites of yours my friend...and I have been lucky enough to see alot of your work

Marcos Mateu said...

FANTASTIC!

Marcelo Vignali said...

Thanks everybody.

Thanks Bobby and Dave for remembering my drawing. I'm flattered.

Jed, Jason, Nathan: I guess all those anatomy classes and figure drawings really paid off here. Not that bears are that similar to people, but all that studying helped to me to draw the muscles in a way that appeared convincing.

Gary: I'm glad you noticed the dangling lip. I found that element was crucial to giving the bears a sense of weight and size.

Per H, Ken and Mark: For me the rhythm of movement is what defines what is an inanimate object, and an organic/animate object. I look for that in my figure drawings and my compositions.

Thanks Anna, the movement between both bears had to work together so that the bears worked as a single unit, even though the action is moving in one's favor.

(Per H, Sorry to hear about your friend.)

Shuku, that's interesting that you can hear them roar, especially before you went to a vocal exam. I think your audio senses were already in high gear.

David: Yikes, I guess I peaked when I drew this one. Now what?

Nathan, I know...Marcos keeps riding me about the same thing.

GhettoFab said...

I wish I could wield a third of your powers...I would use them for good only....I promise

Ale said...

This pose is so strong and brilliantly drawn.

Craig said...
