I like that you just kept the background a simple black so as not to distract from the lioness. Also, keeping the plants in the foreground helped show that she's going somewhere and not just floating in space.

I know it takes years of practice to be able to draw/sketch this well, for me its been hell just to make a tree look good. Your drawing is truly wonderful. You know she see's you. Thanks for sharing.

Es una groceria lo hermoso que es tu trabajo, en verdad. I just had to express that in Spanish, basically, I could say your work is so beautiful, it's offensive haha!

Well. I'm italian and I understand spanish because, you know, is a little similar to my language. Thanks a lot for the kind words in both languages :D

:iconernestovladimir:
ErnestoVladimir Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hehe, yes, our languages are very similar, though our cultures are quite different, haha! So, my fear would be that the context in which I expressed myself in my tongue may be misinterpreted. But I can tell that did not happen hehe :)

I have a colleague at my school, where I study for my Bachelor's degree in ELT, whom is Italian! His name is Luca Balducci. He's quite the character :)
