Truthfully, I can't say I have a favorite creature. But I have fond memories of lions. When I was child, my father worked at a zoo. Back then they didn't have nurseries and if a mother rejected her babies, the staff would take them home and raise them. So along with our cats and dogs, I had tiger and lion cubs to play with.
So when I saw the Journal52 prompt 11, I decided to draw this lion, using metallic gold, green, and copper, and classic white Gellyroll pens.
