This piece is for sale. See my etsy.

I am hoping I have finally gotten the hang of felines and big cats. I am the most of fond of lions, and particularly lionesses. They're stunning animals.

Reference photo credit to photoflacky. Thanks so much for allowing me to draw this, I was really inspired by it.

This is very amazing in so many ways! the detail in the fur adds to the realistic feel, along with the colors (not many people seem to draw realistic and color realistic) The reason I gave you only four stars (not that 4 is small!) for impact is because it doesn't really impact me. Other then the skill to draw a Lioness! your technique is absoultely AWESOME! I don't know how you do it! The fur looks amazing, along with the expression and everything. And I really think you nailed the anatomy. And for some reason I love the paper on all of your drawings! It's not the plain old white sheet you normally see. It definetly adds to the originality! Overall it's an amazing piece of art! (forgive me if this is a bad critique, this is my second time writing one) Now don't even get me started on the shading!..

This is a gorgeous drawing! The fur is beautifully detailed. The only thing that I would suggest is a different background, at least color. I think its to close to the color of the lion and does not make the coat stand out as much as it could. Great work! :D

Thank you :) I always tend to work on recycled paper simply because I like the texture, but I do want to experiment with other backgrounds in order to produce more striking images. We shall see.
