African Lion

Some would tell me "It's about time you drew an African Lion". I have been wanting to do this for years however, in the past, I had always thought of myself as an American wildlife illustrator. Well ... I am, I mean I'm an American that happens to be an illustrator. That doesn't mean I can't draw animals from around the world as well, so I did. Actually this is just the beginning. I plan on doing more animals for all over in the future. There is one thing I learned about male African Lions that I didn't know before starting this drawing and that is the color of their coat is largely determined by the amount of red meat they eat. The more red meat they eat the darker or more reddish their coat becomes. With in mind I added reddish colors not only in his coat but in the background as well.
