This is another miniature, 4"x6", and had a lot of fun with this little guy. A friend, Julie Hollis, has done some butterflies landing on adult male lion noses, and they are an adorable story. When I saw the pose of this little cub I thought the butterfly would be the perfect addition to tell the story. I also wanted to try to tell the fur story another way without actually doing fur, so instead it is roughed color splotches. I think it still reads as fur. I used the saran wrap again to get some extrude in the background, to keep it really simple so the focus is on the cub's expression. Must tell you that left ear (right to us) and head position was pretty tricky for me and took a couple of shots to do.
Thanks much for all the support and interest over the last 30 days, and stopping by. Much appreciated!!
