The Lion King by chandito The Lion King by chandito
Finally completed this drawing. This was a long project. This drawing measures 30"x40" and is the drawing that i have done at this size. It took long not only because of the size of the lion but because i did a full background. I tried to add as much detail as possible, which is hard to see in this photo. You can watch video of drawing here [link]
be sure to watch in HD for best quality.

My biggest inspiration, apart from my love for animals, was the style of Ansel Adams. I love his photography work and the impact that his contrast in his black and white photographs have. My goal was to have that dramatic look in a wildlife scene. Im really happy with the results and im glad im done. Thanks to everyone who followed the progress.

It definitely has an Adams feel to it. The use of contrast here is spectacular. You've done a remarkable job!

That's...intense. And indeed dramatic. I won't ask HOW long exactly it took you...I know I lose count after about a day's work. I love the contrast of the intricate fur detailing and then that of the giraffes. ^^
Simply splendid. It seems a bit too grainy for my liking on the fur at the very front -maybe smoothing it down a bit? But if the sharp, clean-cut edge look is what you're going for, then by all means...more, please ;)

Holy crap. It is ridiculous how detailed that is. Any estimate on how much time it took you?
