The Story Behind This Image

I painted this bear during a weekend where I simply had the urge to make a happy, blissful image that would inspire some smiles.

I had been doing some anatomical studies of bears, and by the time I felt comfortable enough with the anatomy I sketched a series of gestures. One of these gestures had a joyful, dynamic feel, so I cleaned it up and started painting.

The image is painted entirely digitally, in a back-and-forth dance between Procreate and Photoshop.

As a nature photographer, I aimed to convey for a feeling of realism in the way the imaginary camera lens would affect the image, picturing what lens I would've used if I had been there in the scene, and how the image would distort and blur.
