This was my original concept for the Ursa Major. I was thinking about how you often find in nature that babies look nothing like their parents (warthogs, specifically) and thought that the more horrific the Major looked than the Minor would be funny. I was told that the difference was too extreme and it could be confusing. I still like this one better.
I don't usually draw this way, and I was rather pleased with how it came out, so I thought I'd share.
