Hooray for saving iterations in the right places!

So this one started off a little wonky; I'd intended to go more stylized with it initially, but I found that just wasn't working for what I wanted, so it gradually moved towards just being a more realistic take on a lion. I used a bunch of different brushes at various stages for this, and my trusty blender from Kyle's brushpacks. Reference used was my own!

Toward the very end, I applied a quick layer adjustment (levels) because it was feeling slightly washed out!

It's fascinating to see the different stages. If you didn't see them you'd truly think this was magic.
