He was the king of the jungle; he was old and very wise.
This drawing was done with black and white conte.
It was actually voted People’s Choice in an artshow and I won an award.
Unfortunately, the paper also faded considerably from the direct lights while on display. So what was originally a black background now looks a bit brown.
So for variety, I’ve uploaded one version of this drawing on a grey background (which can be found by clicking here )
And another, which you happen to be looking at right now, with the light-faded background. I actually think I fancy the brown background a bit more. I love the contrast it allows for the white and black conte. I think it makes the lion himself come forward a bit more on the paper and I enjoy that. You might not, however, which is why I gave you two options.
Thanks for the view!
