The Heavyweight - Grizzly by CitizenOlek The Heavyweight - Grizzly by CitizenOlek
New upload - much better picture with truer colors.

I wanted to create a painting that emphasized the bulk and therefore the power of this magnificent breed.

Yes, if only he wasn't a wild animal! But then, if he wasn't, he wouldn't look so cool ^__^

Actually it's all pretty recently uploaded.
I started with DA last year but didn't pursue it.
I couldn't quite figure out what DA was all about.
But, I think I've got it now - It's a Community. :w00t:

It really is a community, if you can find the right group of people to talk to. I've found a few on here that I talk to frequently. I suppose you've just got to find your own niche and grow in it.
