Now that bear is one bad motherfucker. I would have liked to have seen more rust on his armor but he looks great :D

Don't worry about coloring it. The dull bleakness of it works very well. If you do color it, use muted colors.

LittleRainyBear, apologies for the delay in replying, been crazy busy lately. I'm actually doing a bear tattoo for a good friend of mine.. supposed to be that is, as I haven't done that one yet either ! probably won't be able to get one done for you within a month.. got a backlog of other stuff which I really need to do first.

Just epic. I love it. The armor is much more fitting than the interpretation they took in the movie.

cheers for the comment :]

I haven't seen the trailer but I have seen a few screenshots - looks interesting although I'm not too sure about Iorek's armor..

:+fav: Brilliant! I love the books, so it's good to get a take on the character from something other than the movies - although from the trailer, it looks very promising.

Absolutely brilliant.
I take it you're working on a project to do with him? or was it for your own pleasure?

this was entirely for my own pleasure. did the original pencil drawing about 5 years ago after first reading the books.

it's awesome, pretty much what I imagined him to look like. I can't wait for the movies.

You drew him so well!
He's my absolute favorite character.
The armor fits so well. It really looks like it would move smoothly. C:
