Lion in Zion

By saswata
🦁 Lion ♌︎ from the Garden of Eden (GN ODN, גן עדן) or Tzion (ציון), or Siṁhapura (सिंहपुर)? Pencil drawing with hardness/softness ‘F’, from 1996. The hole in the paper was there before I started drawing. It took half a year, from summer to winter.

What did you use to erase all those fine lines? A Typewrite eraser??
saswata's avatar
I didn't erase anything. I simply didn't draw the fine lines, but only the shadows next to them. The fine lines are the empty spaces, where the paper is untouched by the pencil.

Great work! Why dont you have more drawing in your gallery? You're very talented. I love the scar on his nose. It gives him personality.

I don't have much sparetime after work. It's a stupid job, soldering circuit cards. Therefore I can't make any drawings. I do everything very slowly, you see.

I understand. I dont do drawings every day either. Mostly because of time shortage, like you. But sometimes because of no inspiration. But you are great at drawing! Dont give up your talent!

Yes, only F! It took me half a year though, including many long breaks. :pencil:

Awesome work! The detail is incredible and all the markings on his face give him real character.
