I felt like painting a quick digital doodle of a lion, so I did. A quick twenty minutes of sploshing a bit of digital colour here and there, with a few layers thrown into the mix, and a dash of artistic licence brought me to this result here, which I’m quite pleased with.

I then tweaked it slightly in Photoshop Elements, just to make it stand out a little more.

And then, I went one stage further and then decided to stop.

It was only a quick doodle, after all!
