How scary is the face you see before you now? Would you want to be confronted with such an aggressive, mean, and nightmarish animal? I know I wouldn't, but bears are still very beautiful animals even when they are enraged like you see here. There are many types of bears in the world but the Grizzly bear is probably one of the ones that has the worst reputation. This is because there are more human deaths reported with Grizzly bears then any other bear in the wild. I thought it would be nice to make a tutorial on "how to draw a bear face", step by step, but switch things up a bit and do a face that is raging or is trying to ward off another predator. These bears are so massive in size, and they are always on the move looking for their next meal. I really enjoyed drawing this bear face because I have a respect for the Grizzly just like any other wild animal out there that can take your face off with just one swift blow with it's paw. It's weird how Native Americans found these animals sacred as well. But then again, all animals to them had a purpose on life because they all belonged o mother earth. Well, that's it, have fun drawing your Grizzly face. Make sure you upload your finished artwork when you're done so I can check it out. Adios people!

STEP 2.

Slowly start drawing out the muzzle of the grizzly bear at the top part of the shape you made in step one. Since the mouth is roaring you will need to draw a gap to show that the mouth is open. When a grizzly or other bear is in full rage, their bottom lip sort of comes out and dis-attaches to the rest of the mouth. That is the little ledge at the bottom of the jaw you will have to draw. Sketch out the chin and some of the cheek as well as the crinkled up brows and nose.
