Griz

This is a piece from the Arctic Myths project I am currently working on. Depicted here is a female Grizzly Being - which is to say a human being with some very prominent Grizzly Bear characteristics. In this picture we have a large and bloated female taking a drink from a stream. The Grizzly people are known to be rather nasty. They are grave robbers. They plunder and steal and murder. You really do not want to encounter a Grizzly being in the wilderness. You will be yelling and screaming and running for your life.

Nice image. I really dig it actually, maybe just like seeing a female image that isn't Practically Perfect in Every Way. She looks like she could wear some guts for garters! Maybe unpleasant and nasty folk but like the grizzly itself, give it some respect!

Thanks O.D.

That's marvelous, Larry. You've managed to give her a truly wild, bestial quality without putting her in a wild, bestial pose.

Thanks Jim - the effect was very tricky to achieve ;)
