Winter Winds by CobraVenom Winter Winds by CobraVenom
Just a random Lion cub! :dummy:

"The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera, and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight, it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions currently exist in sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia, with an endangered remnant population in Gir Forest National Park in India, having disappeared from North Africa and Southwest Asia in historic times.
Until the late Pleistocene, about 10,000 years ago, the lion was the most widespread large land mammal after humans. They were found in most of Africa, across Eurasia from western Europe to India, and in the Americas from the Yukon to Peru.
The lion is a vulnerable species, having seen a major population decline of 3050% over the past two decades in its African range.
Lion populations are untenable outside designated reserves and national parks. Although the cause of the decline is not fully understood, habitat loss and conflicts with humans are currently the greatest causes of concern. Within Africa, the West African lion population is particularly endangered."


I hope you like it! :la:

I personally use Photoshop CS5, but that is expensive to buy for starters. A free program similar to it is GIMP, available here - [link]

I recommended browsing through the tutorial section here on DA to help you learn how to draw, otherwise the only advice I can give you is use a lot of photo references and practice often :meow:

This is so beautiful!
I am curious how you achieved the almost.. grainy texture throughout this whole piece? I noticed it in some of your other works as well, I love how it looks =)
