So here it is. Instructions for Grizzle.
http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=98093
I hope this helps, even though I don't have a parts list. (How do you make those anyway?) I also have put up some newer (clearer) pics in my bear folder.
http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=95818
And to wrap things up here's a little something I've been woking on lately. Sort of a big gnome.

Enjoy.
Let us stop for a moment and ponder the signiture...

Well, once you've built the thing, you take it apart, sort all the parts, then write it up! :wink:

Cute gnome. Please keep it muzzled and on a leash. And do we have a 'pooper-scooper' ordinance for this site?

Oh how I wish I had the parts to make your grizzly. It's an awesome MOC animal.

I've got to try building that bear sometime.

That gnome is awesome! He's very articulated, and looks great also. Good work.

Hey Micah,

Thanks for the bear instructions. The way you made the head is especially clever.

I really like the gnome as well. I'd love to see an army of these little guys.

Thanks for the instructions, I don't currently have the parts to build this, but when I do, you can be sure I have this bookmarked.

After a long absence, I have returned. I can't wait to start building again.

1 of these: http://www.bricklink.com/search.asp?invXrefID=6266

Please note that the parts do allow some leeway in coloring. For instance, in my bear the top of his head is a black piece, unlike what I have in the list. http://www.bricklink.com/search.asp?invXrefID=9250
Of course I think it would be undoubtedly better to have it in brown. I would have had it that way in the Brickself folder, but... I needed the bear for my scene in the roleplay illustrations... and it ended at the end of the month and...

Oh who cares! The point is that you can deviate from the color scheme. I was originally going to make him in black (which would be infinitely easier) but I decided that brown would show up better in the pictures.

Now to your comments.

Hehehe. I think that sounds like a job for the Gong farmers. :lol:

Bruce N H:

If that's true then I can say with a certainty that cleverness originates from frustration. That head was a pain to design!
I really like the gnome as well. I'd love to see an army of these little guys.

You and me both. Though I don't have the parts... Hmmmm Bricklink?

As to the rest,(that means you Luís, porschecm2 and wlister) thanks for the comments. Hopefully I can stop being such a lurker and post more comments like you guys. :)
Let us stop for a moment and ponder the signiture...

And thanks for the parts list. Great work.

Those gnomes are sweet looking. That is a creative use for the hand pieces for eyes.

Good work guys.

Heeeeeeeeey nice! I like the hand variation, how it adds an extra pivot point to the the arms.

Hmmm... So with two gnomes now I guess that means extra work for the pooper scooper ordinance. :wink:

I really like your bear. Unfortunantly I don't have all the pieces. And that gnome looks cool. I really like it.

Hey all,

I've put together instructions for Micah's gnome:

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=100746

Now we can build an army of these to keep our gong farmers busy. :wink:

It wasn't until I went back to look at this that I reallized how you use a minifig hand as a thumb. Clever.

Wow, 93 pieces to make one l'il bar. I just love the critter.

Though, it does beg the question: if a bear eats enough, does it leave mega bloks in the woods? :shock:
