_King of the Nile_ by Aikya _King of the Nile_ by Aikya
The Lion King! XD :heart:

I've been working on some big cats-the Lion is such a beautiful, majestic creature. I love their anatomy. Their eyes are so intense!

His headdress took for ever-lots of overlapping and toning with the pencil. This is a design for a story character. I'll see where it goes from here.

I appreciate feedback! Enjoy! :love:

Mediums used: 2B, 4B, 8B pencils on 90lb cold press watercolor paper, ps for framework.

This made me laugh.
Very different than the usual manes.
I also like the emotion (that I saw I dunno if it was on purpose or not.) on the lion's face.

LOL OWLS!!! XD

They do stare right into your soul! I love animals with intense eyes-you can tell the difference between a predator's and a prey animal's eyes. ^^
