Lion WIP #2

Lion 
I progressed a little more this week.  I was hoping to be further along but I have had a week of running around.  I still have a lot of work to do on his face and the hair/fur.  He is slowly coming to life. As you will have noticed I dart all over the place.  LOL  I don't seem to be able to just work from a corner and concentrate on a small area at a time.     :)
With so much detail on his face it's going to take a while but I am enjoying the challenge of this majestic lion..

Absolutely magnificent, Doreen. I love the dark background that just highlights the softness of his fur and your oh so delicate touch.

I agree - the background is perfect and fur does look soft. You probably can't concentrate because you're too excited!

Hi Dors,

Even in the early stages of your work, you can see the lion coming to life. I'm staying tuned. Also thank you for your advice on my blog problems. I am back in business!!

Regards,

Sue
