how to draw bear

Hi everybody, welcome to anew NIL-Tech drawing tutorial:"Bear".  Bears are omnivorous creatures divided into eight species, and the majority of them are endangered. Like human babies, bear cubs are incredibly playful. Like human moms, if things get too harsh, the mama bear will stop to protect them from hurting themselves.


Here are some interesting facts about bears:

1. Bears are brilliant animals. They have far superior navigation skills to people, exceptional memory, large brain to body proportion, and can use tools in different contexts from play to hunt.

2. Bears grieve deeply for others. Cubs are known to moan and weep when separated from their mothers. This can go on for weeks if hunters kill their mothers.

3. Bears have excellent senses of smell, sight, and hearing. They can smell food, cubs, a companion, or predators from miles away. Their incredible sight permits them to identify when fruits are ripe.

4. Some species of Asiatic bear build nests in the trees. They can use these for hiding, eating, and also resting.

5. Bears care deeply about their families. They will risk their lives and fight to the death to save a cub or sibling from danger.
