Bear / Bigfoot

On the left is my bear. On the right is my inspiration for him, a still of Bigfoot taken from the famous film footage shot by Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin in 1967 with a 16mm camera.

The things that draw me to this image are the “do I have to come over there” attitude it projects while at the same time the “deer caught in the headlights” look. It’s the combination of surprise vs size. Or, oh shit, should I run or do I need to come over there and tear you apart?!
