Lioness WIP


A large drawing for a nice change. Just mapping out getting some base working. The size when finished will be 45 x 35 cm plus the border on Arches smooth 300 gsm paper.
The lioness ref photo comes courtesy of Rod Haley ( Flickr).  Thank you very much Rod for the permission to use one of your superb photos.

Oh goodie ... a big cat (I have a soft spot for these fabulous creatures).

You're off to a great start Dors.

This is looking awesome, Doreen.

Thank you Sue and Sherry. I hope I can pull this big cat off.

I will try my best.

I agree with Sue! I like all the big cats but lions and pumas are especial favorites!
