    How does one do Bear art?

    Also, Stephen Peck. Amazon search for you.

    "Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."
    -John Huston, Director

    Probably much in the way one does Twink, Tranny, or Pony Boy art. . .

    Well the truth is that you approach it the same way as drawing pretty much everything else.

    Sorry. It might help if you were more specific? Like, "I want to do "bear art" but only caucasian guys from 5'8" to 6'5". Blacks guys would be ok too but only if there are some tutorials you could recommend?"

    The "referendum" has nothing to do with the subject...and everything to do with the attitude. It's like TinyBird said - you approach it the same way as drawing anything else.

    What would Caravaggio do?
