Bears and Owls

So, over the past couple days I've drawn over a hundred Bears and a handful of owls. i figured i'd post some of 'em here, as i literally have nothing better to do. They're all very quick sketches, none exceeding 5 minutes and most 1-2 minutes; i know, because i timed myself. Yeah. That happened. What i'm doing here is slowly but, rest assured, surely mentally cataloging the shapes and nuances of the beasts. I'm working towards creating a set of animal Norse gods, Odin, Loki, Heimdall, Thor, et al. maybe making a Children's Book or perhaps an ultra-violent web comic or something, i haven't decided. It will be challenging to square the massive amount of violence and sex from the source material (i'm getting it from "The Norse Myths" by Kevin Crossley-Holland) for a children's book, but we'll see how things shape up. Oh! Heimdall will be some kind of owl, a snowy owl maybe, and Odin will, of course, be a bear. I think i'll make all the Aesir, with the exception of Heimdall, members of Caniformia, Bears, Dogs, Seals, Raccoons, walrus' and the like. anyway, Here are the sketches.              

It hits all by itself.
