|"El Fuerte León," Acrylic with ALOT of water.|
"El Fuerte León," or The Strong Lion, as the self- explanatory title explains, was a small doodle I painted on my sketchbook during breaktime in my Color and Comp 2-D class.
I didn't even plan ahead and this drawing popped out! I liked how his chest hairs pop out on the orange hahaa. I only drew it because I had an artist's block because we had to paint a scene that used a great amount of monochromatic harmonies (that's the tints and tones of one color) and I was totally stuck! I wanted to use a warm color palette though, and I had plenty of orange and purple to spare so I tried using it up by making this guy. I originally wanted to do a beach scene with a bunch of animals working out at Muscle Beach, which is where this lion idea popped out from. But, I ended up doing something completely different since I decided I needed to experiment a bit more. Maybe I will draw something with him in the future~
