The first thing you gotta remember is bears are plantigrade, their big spade paws are flat, like our hands. Plus they have 5 toes, a rookie move is drawing bears with 4 toes, or standing digitigrade like a dog (it is my pet peeveeee Dx )
This probably isn’t all that helpful… but I start by drawing a rather pudgy trapezoid attached to a turkey drumstick. Next I draw in the 5 claws to know where to position the toes & add details based on the bear species (pandas have weird thumbs and polar bears have less pad).
Hey there my trans and NB buddy pals my name is Panda and I am a cis and I am here
I want you to know that I find ‘down with cis’ hilarious
so when a square ass cis person tries to tell you that ‘down with cis’ is oppressive or offensive or whatevs you tell them, “I have a cis friend and she thinks it’s hilarious so obviously you’re just too sensitive”.
You tell em ol Panda gave it the thumbs up. I will be ur token cis. Happy Holidays kiddos.
In this scene, Grizz is demonstrating Panda’s sesamoid bone (aka a panda bear’s “thumb”) that pandas in the wild use to hold bamboo while Ice Bear, in contrast, displays his long claws that polar bears use to catch prey and provide traction on the ice.
omg, in the new WBB during the dialogue-less segment where they’re answering questions for the class, they showed how Panda has a pseudo thumb! ‘cause pandas are the only bears with ‘thumbs’. I think its so cool that they acknowledged that
