A rare sighting of wild Gummie Bears in their natural habitat. Valued for their high sugar content and delicious flavour, they were nearly hunted to extinction at the turn of the century. A gentle and shy creature, it is now rarely sighted and has been declared an endangered species.

In 1963 a law banning the killing of any wild Gummie Bear came into effect. Since the ban they have been successfully bred in captivity and have been genetically modified to grow to only a tiny in size in order to be sold as a confectionary. Most children today have no idea the miniature bears they eat by the mouthful are related to this grand and wonderful creature, which can stand 2.4 metres (7.9 ft) tall or more and weigh up to 680 kg (1,500 lb).

Sim process on silver.

Thanks for the fab comments people!

Alex - no, I had no idea about that design. I did a search and found quite a few gummie bear-related designs but they were different concepts and hadn't printed. Frickinawesome had mentioned in my blog that he was working on a similar concept as well which kind of surprised me.

Anyway, this is a bummer. The styles are of course different but the concept is very similar, and here I was thinking I had actually come up with an original idea! I still think it's different enough stylistically though and has a very different mood.

Terry, dontcha worry about anyone else (including me!) doing or having an idea to bring gummie bears into a more realistic wilderness setting. Your version of this idea is leaps and bounds beyond anything i've seen before for this concept.

It's so chock full of your classic attention to the minor-est of minor details in your nature landscapes contrasted with such contrasting unnaturally colored yet immaculately drawn gummie bears that I don't think anyone can try and call "rip off" at you with a straight face and an honest heart.
