I don't believe I've posted this one yet. This was always one of my favorites from this set. More work for Firebird Productions.

I find your artwork really interesting, not just because of the style and technique, but specially because of the strong cultural touch that you add for each one of your pieces. Congratulations for your great gallery, and thank you very much for sharing :)

I love the sense of scale that you created, it makes the bears look truly immense. :D

This is, honestly, probably my favorite of the old Firebird Productions work you've been showing. I just get such a sense of story from it. Great work in the greyscale, setting the scale, the atmospheric perspective, and the general tone of the scene. And I love the questions it raises about what's going on and what's about to happen with that poor guy on his knees in the snow.

Tell you what, though - better not let this get out to Stephen Colbert. He'll label you a 'Bear Sympathizer' and that'll be it for you, my friend! :D

Honestly, it's been so long since I did the piece that I don't remember the description or the story behind the piece. Sorry!

I really like how the closer trees are lighter than the farther trees, I would have never thought to do that since I'm like stuck on that atmospheric effect shading. But it really draws the main figure out, and contrasts well with the white sky. I have so much to learn from you when it comes to coloring with grays!

Well, I think it's a good idea, generally, to stay true to most common laws regarding perspective and atmospheric perspective. But...you have to remember that in art, you are the master and you can tweak things to get the effect you want. Ultimately, it's not about if the image is absolutely correct, but if it has a strong composition and is a striking image. Thanks!

I love the size contrast between the main bear in front and the human, it's very intimidating.
