A bear for the show

 In April there is another AP art show, which means I have little time to get everything done! I haven't been working on my bears to much lately because all my time and ideas have been so focused on the sculpture I am working on in class. I'm not quite sure how it happened but the wolf sculpture ending up being life sized, I can't even pick it up so my teacher has let me use a table with wheels on it. I'm really hoping I will have time to let it dry into the greenware stage, paint it, and add all the little details before the big day. Since this might be my last art show this year I have been wanting to get at least one bear in (the mink cub is almost finished but I decided I would rather put in one of my regular synthetic bears because I want to show what my normal work looks like.) Here are some pictures in progress of the bear I am making for the show. Maybe once things start slowing down I will get the chance to take some pictures of the wolf sculpture too. Hope all is well!

I changed the body pattern a little bit so that this bear
 would have a bigger tummy, he isn't stuffed yet so
it is hard to see the difference.

I also added more of a hump on the back like
the traditional teddy bears

Little toes and claws :)
