teddy the bear warrior by stevesafir teddy the bear warrior by stevesafir
teddy was once a great wizard in a past life named thadeous. he reincarnated into a bear. crossing the lands as a normal bear he came across a young girl in trouble. while in the form of a bear his memory of his past life was limited, his insticts to save the young girl triggered the magic intwined into his very soul. he transformed into unique creature humanoid in form but with great strength and the appearance of a bear. although teddy has very little knowledge of his past life, he occasionally will get a flashback.

done in photoshop and painter 4 essentials useing a bamboo tablet.

this is my second submission, my first one can be viewed here

work is very depressing makes me want to work even harder at making a living on just my artwork. my highlights are my girl, my art, generator rex, and image comics invincible......i guess things don't change much.....are you still working on that comic the three amigos? and dude i would certainly comission a black and white of your boris the hog character, you know the one that looks kinda like buzz lightyear combined with that green lantern pig.

haha. yes, so you finally got around to seeing generator rex. i knew you would love that cartoon. it's awesome. i think it is a great idea. i also love invincible. i hear ya about making a living with the art too. that is the good life.

i am still working on it. i am working on page 11 right now. i just finished a pinup for it yesterday that i should be posting today or tomorrow. it is gonna end up being around 23 pages or so. and dude, your my bud, i will draw you one just cause you are awesome. it will give me an excuse to draw him again.

are you still workin on your story you started with that pic you posted a couple weeks ago? i want to see some sequentials from steve safir.

also, have you got copies of the book you did those pinups for? if not let me know i will email the dude and ask him what's up.

havent got copies of that one book yet...

ya i work late on fridays, but i watch generator rex online on my day off every week. love it.

ya im still working on a story most of what i have now is the writting and some character sketches/designs. i'll probably post some narrative shortly but it would be unrelated to what im working on now, still have a ways to go. but im not gonna stop thinking about it or working on it, i think sometimes i get an idea and i only take it so far. not this time, i will summon all my discipline and just do it.

thats cool page 11, must feel good seeing the story come time life. let me know when its finished. i assume you'll be selling hard copies at some point, or will it just be an online comic?

i love that boris guy, but let me give you something, i can pay no worries or if you would prefer maybe we could do a trade. cause you are awesome, really.....out of all the guys from jks, i see more of your work than everyone elses combined. while all those guys dont watch me i watch them. kim always has the low down on jks so they arent hard to find on da. its tough arent there, i dont think they tell that to us enough in jks, but i hope, i believe you and i will make something of our hardwork one day.
