Thank you ahead of time for any favorites and comments!

I had quite a bit of neutral flesh-tone leftover from my latest Make-Shift Angel so, rather than waste paint, I decided I owed my watchers a new lion. As for his name, spring has arrived early and, while another good storm or three wouldn't be out of character, it has been unbearably lovely in the early morning.

:heart: Your work has always impressed me and my love for the Cat seems to always bring me to your big cats. This one seems to be sad to me and the blue with his face reinforces this feel. I love it makes me want to know what he is thinking.
