Artist's Description

The big five series wouldn’t be complete without a lion, but even my good shots of the big black maned males seemed a bit trite. So I opted for this pic of a young male lion having a leasurely stretch after a big meal. He’s probably between 2 and 3 years of age. Too young to be thrown out of his original pride, but he’s getting close.

My background are two different shots in Tanzania Africa, one of a flat top forest and another of dawn on the veldt each in a layer with one multiply mode and one soft light mode.. (Yes, I did think of making grunge backgrounds when I was in Africa and made sure to get lots of scenery) Then added the lion and finished with a texture layer of gold multicolor (multiply) to pick up the tones of the lion’s coat. Then gently erased some of that layer from his face.

This image is included in an African calendar. Click here to view all the included images and to purchase if you’d like:
