Wednesday, April 30, 2008 Cow #116

I have decided to take on the weekly challenges for practice of concept art since it is a great way to get motivation. Here is my creature entry for #116 A Polar Saw Bear.
And this is my definition:
Polar Saw Bear, the missing link between the Saw Fish and Polar Bear, before one went to the sea and the other to land.He uses his snout to detect prey beneath the ice, then cuts a hole and scoops them out. They then use the snout to flick the food into the air and catch it in their mouth. This manner of fishing and capture is only used if the Polar Saw Bear chooses not to go into the sea to seek out fish and seals with its swimming and slicing skills. When the Polar Saw Bear is in mating season, their fur upon the belly turns a bright shade of orange salmon red towards the other male competition. When courting a female, he will also display this colour along with a freshly killed fish.
..below is the progress.
