Happy Lunar New Year, Moon Bear

I haven't painted in a while. This doesn't count as a "real" painting but I dragged a brush full of gouache around on paper so there you go. I wanted to use my black sketchbook, and I wanted to paint something mostly black. This is an Asian black bear, also know as a moon bear (cool name, huh?). They have a fun white V on their chest and wide-looking heads. I wish I had exaggerated the head and big ears even more, actually. I was going to make the bear holding something but couldn't decide on what, so now it's making some kind of weird bear hand sign.

I blame anatomical mistakes on my laziness of just painting away without making a sketch first.
