Character development – Gurdy the bear cub

Hello everyone!

It is Monday and very cold indeed. Today, I am continuing to develop Gurdy, a bear cub which is the main character for my story. Gurdy is a bear cub who lives in the Alps. He is cute, furry, friendly but also lonely. His greatest fear is being alone. Gurdy loves sweet cakes and honey beer.He loves travelling and adventures. His greatest wish is to have a best friend. His favourite pastime is snuggling. In order to add a bit of personality and uniqueness to Gurdy, I decided to illustrate rough sketches of Gurdy in different kind of clothes and elements. I seem to be drawn towards the simplicity elements of my character by just focusing only on displaying either the neckerchief or the scarf. Let me know what you guys think. Like and subscribe if you like my post.

When I am not illustrating, I will be in the Art Gallery looking for inspiration. I also volunteer at the National Gallery of Ireland. I also enjoy cooking as well as good delicious foods and wine. I do love good long nature walks.
