This full figure lion is the first time I charcoal sketched using my hard hat. I am really pleased with the perspective and feeling of being in mid-step, This lion has a lot of texture and you can see the depth in the mane and body. I used many layers of glaze in many colors to create the dark and light fur. I used neutralized tones in the background to create distance. It is a very upbeat cheerful day in the sky, but there is a very somber look on his face. That seems very appropriate with all the danger to this species at this time. —Donald Ryker
