My first try in Adobe Illustrator! :D This took ages but it was fun to do :) I like the vector style. During my current internship I have to work with Illustrator so I have to get the hang of it. xD

Hello! I love your work! How do you go about screating such good lines via the curve tool everyone seems to use? I'm new to Illustrator and will be creating an image hopefully like this for my school's mascot (which is a Chimera.)

Cool! From further back it looks like the shading and highlits are all blurred then I took a closer look and realized it's normal lines. Great job!!

Wow, aesome, i love the color. I like lions who arn't heavy in color but not exactly the pure white albino ones. But the white ones ARE pritty, just not my fave. Lovly, keep up the awsome art. :)

AI Is fun once you get the hang of it :aww:

I personally use it to ink my line art sometimes.

Yeah I might try that too :) I used the pentool for the outlines of the face..and the rest is done with the pencil tool :)

AI makes amazing line art. Albeit it takes a long time to ink by pen tool.

I suspected that's what you did. It turned out marvelous!
