So this started out as a joke/gift sketch for someone on Tumblr, but I just couldn't leave it at that and ended up fleshing it out into a full painting. The watercolours went haywire on this and I had to work around some pretty bad pilling on the paper, hence the extensive coloured pencil highlights and high gloss sheen. Just imagine that this dapper bear has been freshly turtle waxed for a big show!
