“Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
This is a commission for my mother, she's been wanting me to draw something for her to hang in the front room for a few years. So now that I feel my skill is worthy enough she paid me and I got to work.
She wanted me to draw a lion, a lamb and a child-- based off a scripture: Isaiah 11:6.
I took some liberates and the lion is somewhat based off of C.S. Lewis's Aslan. Hell-- I even used a reference of Aslan when I first started sketching it out.
I'm exceedingly proud of this drawing and I worked for what felt like FOREVERRRRRR on this drawing because I wanted to really demonstrate the lengths of my ability at this point in time, that and I just wanted to do a good job since it was for my parents-- mostly my mother. I forced myself to stop working on it because I was literally getting tired of seeing the file, that and just hoping such a GIGANTIC FILE caused everything to lag-- the true size of this image is 4600x3000.
It's nice to also get a commission to draw what I love drawing-- animals.
I mean sure-- smut is great and all but it's nice to remember that this is where I started out. Now I can do it with decent competence.
