NEW: Prints of this artwork now available!

Also purchase a bigger jpg version to have it as a wallpaper.

King of the place, here is the mighty lion.

You can view some details, the sketch in progress and the paper I'm using here.

Some innovations: drawing with colors and black paper... This is somehow
the "beta version" of "Pencil Vs Camera". Many more works coming soon.
I left the drawing unfinished on purpose (I wanted to attract the attention on
the lion's face mainly). I took this picture in Tunisia and I also made the drawing.

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

PS: Please join me on Soundcloud, I will add new works there soon.

Critique by Jebedeeah Mar 9, 2012, 1:44:32 PM
I like tris kind of works, it's a godo way to remino everybody that using hands is better than using just a mouse on Photoshop.
Fantasy is better than digital stuff... Even if a computer can help us to create images of pur fantasy we should continue using pencils, brushes and hands!
I like it.
Keep on drawing and working tris way.

What do you think?

This is amazing!! looks soooo realistic! Really matches the scene and I love how its morning but the picture is in the dark so its a nice contrast! The lions paws need to be a little bigger but other then that its perfect!! I love how you imagine the picture and find a perfect moment for it. Even though its a sketch it looks realistic untill you really looks close up. Very Good!! Cant wait to see whats nexts! If I had to grade it I would give it an A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++!!!!
Your totally amazing!! Im your biggest fan!! Nice work!

This one id different, for there is colour. Now I must figure out why :) other than contrast, realism and the look of the lion coming out of the drawn part and into the photograph part.
