So after mentioning in my 3 For February post that I was working on a commission bear right now, I was asked by a few people if I could do progress shots. So here’s the question, how much progress do you want? My Anatomy Of A Bear series last year looked in detail at how the bear is made, but would you be happy with less detail, along the lines of say a post each for the head, limbs and finished article? Maybe a before and after for the head? As it is, at the moment he looks like this:

As much as you are willing to shaare. We all know how much work goes in to photo editing and what not. I just love watching your bears come together.
Very cool to see all the templates like that.
Oh, look! Lots of beary pieces full of promise! I'd love to see whatever photos you have time to post but I like your idea of a photo for each (major) stage, that would be great! Have fun!
I think you covered all the info on the bear series you did, so I'd be happy just with a photo each time you've done something – I'm just incredibly nosy and seeing the bear come together is just wonderful!
Copy and paste. (o:
Look! A naked bear! Cover him up, give him some modesty for teddy s sake! Agree with Sarah 🙂
Just seeing him come together would be wonderful – no extra work for you. Juliex
Laughing at Trudi's comment.
Im happy for you to show whatever floats your boat. I love seeing bears take on a life of their own!
Don't go into too much detail it will slow you down. Just a step by step process of the big bits.
Oh lordy, not those bear bits again!!
I love watching a bear being born……will love anything and everything you post.
I'd be happy with before and after shots with very little explanation (since you did that before). If you wanted to talk more about the finishing process with the coptic markers and picking clothes (and personalities) for your bears that would be fun to see too. 🙂
Just the odd progress shot will be fine with me. I'd like to see your bears come to life. Don't go into too much detail as you've already done that before and as Sarah said, you've already covered everything in the series posts.
I'd actually like to come and watch if you don't mind!
How do you decide if 'it' is a 'he' or 'she' bear?
On another note blogger hardly allows me to comment on your site (maybe once in every ten tries) – any one else having same problem with your site?
It's always a little bit disconcerting to see bears begin like this. I always thought they came from the Enchanted Woods.
So this is what we look like from the inside?? Show us how we can make ourselves a little brother or sister.
