Bjørn J. Ursmeyer

Just a quick little drawing of a bear out for a stroll.

Doesn't he look happy and contented? Maybe he's on his way to a date with a lovely lady bear. Or maybe he just woke up refreshed from a long winter's hibernation. Or perhaps he just fatally mauled and ate alive a group of unfortunate campers. We'll never know.

Bonus points if you know why I named him "Bjørn."

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.

Here's the original sketch of Bjorn. Nothing much changed, other than cleaning up the lines a bit.

I was trying to instill some fluid motion into this drawing. Technically I drew him wrong; when you walk your arms and legs aren't in sync on each side. When you step forward with your right leg, your right arm swings back as a counterbalance. I know all this, but sometimes it just works better to draw characters walking the "wrong" way though, so you don't get an arm blocking their midsection.


  1. this is a shocking change of pace from your usual grumble-face characters

  2. I know, all the time I was drawing it I felt like I was doing something wrong. I kept trying to figure out a way to work blood or entrails into it.

    Think of this drawing as a sorbet, to cleanse the palette.
