Black Bear, these bears are referred to as aggressive, vicious, and evil. The fact is, the personality and nature of the Black Bear is often crossed with that of the Grizzly Bear. This lesson is going to teach you "how to draw a bear", step by step. The description of the black bear is as follows, they are about five to eight feet from head to tail, and they have small brown eyes, round ears, a huge round body, long nose, a short tail, and bushy fur. The black bear are way smaller then the grizzly as far as the height and weight. This particular bear can be found in North America with a population of over seven hundred thousand. They are identified in the wild by the color of their fur which is black or a dark brown. Of course the male bears are larger than the females. Their weights range from, one hundred twenty pounds to five hundred pounds. Now the weight of the black bear depends on their age and food consumption. Females weigh in from ninety to three hundred pounds. Remember, bears in captivity usually weigh more than normal. Mating takes place from late May to the being of July, the average female produces 1 cub with its first pregnancy, the numbers after that range from two, to sometimes three. The old theory goes that if you cross a mother black bear and her cubs she will come charging after you to attack. This is so not true. They are simply not known to kill people out defense for her cubs that is the description of a grizzly bear. If you live out in the woods I’m sure you get visits from time to time from the wondering bear that is always in search for food. Don’t get me wrong I would never even try in a million years, attempt to confront one of these bears. I would rather stay on the safe side and protect myself from being ripped apart. This tutorial shows you "how to draw a bear" with only six steps, and easy to follow instructions. The sketch was fun to draw on paper, but not on Photoshop. I had to use a tool to make the fur, but that is easy to do when you sketch it out on paper. Leave me a comment on what you think of my art, I welcome criticism.
