Perfect lion’s bust on a very nice pedestal . Gold.
Thank you Theodoros, I also made the pedestal by hand :)
Fantastic eyes on this Lion. Gold!
Where can we buy such “kit” as this animal heads?

It is a great bust to study with and cheap too! Don’t forget to use reference ;)
Very nice :)
love the texture in the fur.
Great! Fine brush stroke.
Haha! I am not the only one who feels this way! :D
is a very very beautiful piece.
Thank you Alfonso, I’m honored to hear that you like him so much. I started the painting from a sketch like I learned in your awesome class! Check out my “sketch book” from last year if you want to see the sketch: http://www.contrastminiatures.com/gallery-index-page/sketch-book-2016/
I really love working in this way. It is very freeing.
Some of the most realistic lifelike work I’ve seen out of any artist.
Thank you everyone for your kind words and encouragement. They put wind in my sails! Paint bravely my friends!
