There is a great challenge with drawing white animals. I’d been thinking about the polar bear for a while, then one of my reference photos spoke to me. I added the cub and the icy background. This will be the first in a series of mother/baby drawings.
Polar bears are still listed as a “vulnerable” species. Melting polar ice makes it harder for the bears to find food.
