Why is it always a bear?
Why to chainsaw artist carve bears? Because bears pay the bills! Bears account for no less than 50% of sales. The mantra is, "carve a bear, carve what I want, carve a bear, carve something artsy, carve a bear, carve a dragon, carve a bear, etc..." All those bears will sell before that one dragon! But everything sells eventually.
The last photo (below) is of another bear carved with these improvements. In addition, rather than simply burning to darken the fur, color was added after the burn to enhance the over all look.
