WIP #1 Lion.

Lion.  28 x 42cm  on  Waterford & Bockingford drawing paper 300gsm
I have roughed in the start of this piece.  so much work to do on the long hair and the face. I think the eye is completed.  A lot more challenging..LOL  I love a challenge.  Another quite large work. I am loving these giant lovable wild animals.  This is mainly a head and shoulders and comes courtessy of the WetCanvas reference library.

Oh, my! The male lions are so majestic and are my favorites of the big cats. This one gives me chill bumps even at this stage!
