PostSubject: Cave bear (ursus spelaeus)   Thu Jun 09, 2016 6:08 pm

Hello friends !, in my next sculpture I introduce it again in the prehistoric fauna with an animal that shared ecosystem with cave lion and our ancestors at that time.

The cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) was a species of bear that lived in Europe during the Pleistocene and became extinct about 24,000 years ago during the Last Glacial Maximum.

This bear Was the head with a more prominent and solid jaw than the brown bear and more prominent eyebrows.This species, along the cave lion was well represented by our ancestors in caves.


Differences between the skeleton of a brown bear and a cave bear ...


Here I show you some pictures of the process. I hope you like it ! Very Happy Very Happy




The figure is made 1:20 scale and in a posture of defense-attack ...




Final photos of the finished figure, and the paint job once completed ...














Finally some photos of a hypothetical encounter between two of the most powerful Pleistocene animals ... affraid affraid

What are you doing, Miguel? Shocked It is fantastic, it looks almost alive, dancing to convince the cave lion that they could be friends. Excellent work, no limits to your talent! cheers

Wonderful! I love the pose you've picked, and the paint job is really great.

(I especially love bears - Bjarki means 'little bear' - and am always excited to see another bear model. Hope you'll make more!)

Impressive, I think the poor gazelle won't serve as a "postre" to these massive beasts. I really expect a coreographic fight between all these bears and gazelle will find a way to keep alive. Very Happy

Great (in every senses), Miguel! I like specially the backward angle: it's full of volume, weight and colour... Congratulations!

Roger, you are right that the gazelle would be a little snack for both monster around and sure would fight between them like a Komodo dragons before a meal Laughing
