Creative interpretations: Bear In The Woods

Thought this might be a fun one. Found this fella roaming around about a half mile from our campsite last august.

I'll post it for now and work on it later. Have Fun!!

cardmnal -- hope you had a telephoto lens. I admire bears, but only from a distance.

This one I lightened, then did a polar distort plus palette knife then reversed the distort (a la Manju), reduced the effect with a layer mask, then ran crystallize and reduced the effect with the History brush. Also ran the sketch filter - notepaper and then faded it.

I blurred the background, and then applied a lot of buZZ.

Thought it would make a nice illustration for a children's book. This is an attempt using filter - photocopy and buzz. Not that great, i know

Thank you Jaykita for the brilliant suggestion. I hope you don't mind. I had the posterization/cutout thing the way I wanted it but not the color pop that you achieved. Forgive me for taking your copy, adding it to my own interpretation and making a unique blend. Children's illustrators lookout. Here we come.

How about a pink bear? Just playing with Buzz Pro, then some color enhancements in PSP9.
