Stargazing Polar Bears

For all my USA friends, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration. We had a great holiday other than that darn ballgame which Alabama just gave away. Aargh! We had lunch with my sister and her family at my aunt's house.  After visiting a while there we went on to my stepson and his wife's house to eat dinner.  We watched the Iron Bowl with them on Friday and then got up early Saturday morning and headed home. I had great intentions of starting on the Christmas decorating but the house was cold when we came in since I had lowered the thermostat to save money.  When it got warm I got relaxed and lazy. I just spent the day doing a whole lot of nothing for a change. 
Now for today's project. I was intimidated by this image until I actually started coloring it. It was mostly about about shadows especially since I decided that the bears should be Polar. It's hard to believe that I used 13 different Copic colors because it looks like I hardly it colored it all. Since the image contained so much white I wanted to keep it simple so I wouldn't overpower it. Both patterned papers are olders one from my stash.
