Thank you ahead of time for any favorites and comments!

"Leo" has been entered in the Wildlife-Artist's Group open submissions contest [link] Good luck, everyone!

Given the many members in my painted pride, it was only a matter of time before one of my lions would deserve the title "Leo."

My thanks to Morho [link] for allowing me to use her beautiful photo as a reference. The moment I saw it, the painting was born in my head.

OMG, I almost freaked out that you had left dA because I couldn't find this picture anywhere in my favourites or anything!! This is my favourite piece of artwork on the whole of this website and I would have been absolutely devastated if I couldn't see it again!

Thank goodness you & your beautiful art is still here!
