Something I've been slowly working on between commissions. India ink on watercolor paper. 3.5 x 5 inches.
Sometimes things just get in my mind to draw and I wanted a girl hugging a bear. I have this huge fear of bears, so maybe there's a bit of finding comfort with something feared, but I'll spare you guys all that. Her hair was the last thing I colored in and I figured this could also kind of a sort of girl-who-grew-up-with-bears thing, a different idea for the whole Goldilocks story. Like, maybe she got lost -forever- and -had- to live with a bunch of bears who were terrifying but for some reason didn't eat her because they liked porridge a whole lot. Anyway.. Long story short, she lives in the woods with her bear friends now and has become one of the family. The End. :D
