If you don't understand what it means than you're obviously a little young to be looking at this kind of art. :)

I really like the expressions on the lionesses. Indifference, boredom, tolerance. Very neat, a nice contrast from the usual OMG TAIKE ME NAOWW! kinds of stuff.

nice, but the shrub i am afraid looks a bit European, i mean i admitt i could be wrong about this but during my time in africa i have never seen a tree like this. then again i could be wrong. i have mostly only been privy to the southen side of the contenent so their is a large margin of error. artistic licence? doesn't matter i guess, the technique is very advanced

I don't think I've seen a pride of anthro lions all together before; this is a great illustration of lion behavior and demeanor paired with the somewhat more expressive humanoid body. Great job! ^..^

This is stunning. As an acrylics painter I'm amazed. Your compositions is so well thought out and the mood is vividly portrayed...along with the lighting condition (which doesn't waver). Very nice attention to detail. I marvel at how well you composed the lionesses lazily on the rocks. Did you use a round or flat brush for most of the detailing. I also know the difficulties of painting on canvas and it looks so smooth. Do you have prints? I love this. I just finished painting the man-eatters of Tsavo and had great difficulty with my lions and I think you made this painting look simple...but it's so intricut.

Yeah, that might be my one problem with the painting. In retrospect I should have tweaked the drawing more, but thats what happens when you give up on a painting and then pick it up again several months later. Her leg is actually placed behind the one in the front. You can see the shadow of it if you view the larger image. Unfortunately, that makes for a rather awkward pose....like she might be off balance as well. Anyhoo, yes she does have two digitigrade legs. :)
