Fine art illustration of an African Lion (Panthera leo.) The illustration is available in color or black & white.
The African Lion was completed on 9.2008. The illustration was a ‘do-over’ from an earlier drawing, although I believe the first drawing was actually an Asiatic Lion. The older drawing showed the lion lying down and the mane wasn’t very pronounced. I decided that I wanted the lion’s mane to be very prominent in the drawing, which I think it is here. I love the lion’s face and the quiet but formidable power his expression conveys.
