very well done, great effect. Now I'm an art student, have been for several years, and not to be critical but just helpful, I do think bringing some of the darkest tones such as we see on the nose into certain parts of the mane would help you have a more effective value.

there are some that you can draw on a canvas and wash off for example if you want to rough out a paint, others are more like water soluble (watercolor) colored pencils. Remember those things as a kid where you dip your brush in water and spread the little color dots? this does the same kind of thing only waaayyy cooler ;)

I think lions are coming back in lol Noticing people artin it up with lions more than usuals. I need to get me one of those pencils and get my ass in gear and do real art. I can't even remember what paper feels like.
