Lions Photo Version

By ascenciok
Facebook refused to let me upload the scanned picture of my lions for some reason so I ended up taking a photo to see if that would work. Stangely it did. Not sure why it made a difference, but figured I would upload this in case anyone wanted to see the difference between photo and scan. Sorry for the glare. Glare is the main reason I go with scan rather then camera photo.

Yes, it was painted from a photo I took at the Pittsburgh Zoo before the male lion passed away. Thanks so much:love:

I agree the scan is so much better, a scanner can see the details and color so much better than a camera, so Ive given up using one:)

I don't know what it was that facebook wouldn't let me upload the scanned version before. I did a rescan with my new scanner and that one went up so who knows haha. Even with me using photoshop to try and fix a photo, I can never get the picture to lign up straight either. Scans take some extra time for my larger pieces, but it's defintely worth it:D
