This drawing really spoke to me. You seem to have a special talent for capturing your subjects "spirit!" I see a gentleness in his eyes that evokes a feeling of warmth. As all your art ... very well done!
He looks so majestic. I have to say I like the drawing far more than the picture. You add a certain intangible to the image. It's almost like there is a sentience to this creature. I'm afraid you've got it wrong however. It's not the picture of the lion that is awesome but the artist and her drawing of it. Thank you for sharing.
