For *childrensillustrator November theme, Polar Bears.

Under the flickering northern lights, the polar bear sleeps soundly.

And as he sleeps, he dreams...

Of rising into the air like a snowflake on an updraft off the early spring tundra; of swimming through the aqua lit sky as though he were underwater, chasing the laughing fur seals that leave trails of shining stars in the heavens.

As he dreams his feet twitch with every dream stroke of his legs through the sky of water--through the shimmering Northern Lights.

It is a good dream, and he is happy.

I don't think polar bears are cute or cuddly, I think they're splendid beasts...hunters. I think their dreams might be something like this :D

I hope so!

You know, this is probably going to sound silly, but this kind of reminded me of those Christmas Coke commercials with the polar bears playing on the ice and drinking and such. Strange, but that's just the first thing I thought of. :D Anyway, you did a beautiful job on this. :) Thanks so much for sharing! :+fav:

It's been so long since I've looked through your gallery, too long. And you have so much more wonderful new work. I really like this. The texture of the fur is really nice as is the texture of the snow/ice he's sleeping on, it looks amazing. Wonderful work, polar bears are amazing creatures.

Love the coloring, and your lines are so... soft, the whole drawing seems to shimmer.

One minor nitpick, though – those look more like harbor or leopard seals.
