Lion WIP #5


Lion.  28 x 42cm  on  Waterford & Bockingford drawing paper 300gsm

The finish is slowing coming.   I get so attached to these beautiful majestic animals that I never want to finish as they then come off the drawing board.  I have been working on the hair and the features a little more. The bottom of the drawing is to be done yet which shouldn't take too long.  

An  Arty weekend to you all.

What a magnificent lion! He looks like he is surely the Leader Of The Pride. Wonderful job on that awesome mane!

He is looking great. You have really captured his sense of power and given him quite a regal look. I love the way you developed the background as well, nice touch.
