Bear vs Tiger

I must have drawn these guys ten times... and I couldn't get them to fight once. In fact, one of the times they were dancing. So the question of "grizzly bear vs. Bengal tiger" remains a mystery... because bears and tigers are too reasonable and understanding to fight. Stupid, uncooperative sketches.

One other thing - next week is "Shark Week" on the Discovery Channel. Don't miss it or you'll risk having nightmares about other stuff.

Haha, I like their playful poses. Like the bear is about to give the tiger a noogie.

Zach said...

Yeah, but the Tiger does look mildly concerned. :) Nice work as always! It's a joy visiting your blog and looking at your work. Really nice!

Shane your work is amazing! You are seriously talented

Classic Shane! Would love to see the sketch of them dancing! Kind of a Baloo and Baguira moment. LOL! Love your last sketch too...for some reason it wouldn't let me post my comment. LOVE the expression on the elephant's face. PRICELESS! Thanks for the heads up on shark week. Kaden will think that's pretty dang cool!

It's always fun to come back and visit your blog. Thanks for the entertainment Shane.

These two guys are great. They look like they can't stay mad at one another.

I love the chemistry you create in our sketches! These knuckleheads have gotta be wiseguys though, that bear looks way too much like Marlon Brando to not be related to your 'Smokey the Bear'.

You can tell these guys are long time friends. Your characters always have so much personality-- they make me laugh, and you make it seem so effortless. Really great work Master Sensei.

i love the expression on the bears face!

Joe said...

If he flexes his bearcep he will break the tigers neck. Nice!

Oh my friggin' god cute!!

Shark week is so weird. It's like, on the one hand, "OMG SHARKS SCARY RUTHLESS LOOK AT THE BLOOD!!!" and then they tack on "Sharks are valuable and lovable and need to be honored and protected."

Sharks need a better agency to help keep everyone on message. :)
