Loving Lions

I am captivated by WildLife Cats. I think they are so strong and powerful, so fierce and aggressive yet still beautifully made and seeing these natural predators show affection and love to each other is touching.

 I did this Piece for my Grandfather to complete the set I started for him. I did the Tiger one for him which you saw and now I gave him one of two loving Lions. This photo took quite some time because I sketched every single strand of hair, But although it took long I wanted to make sure I got as close to realistic as I could. Of course there are always improvements and growing to do on each art piece. Still I am pretty pleased with the outcome of the Lions.
