Daydreaming  (Pencil on paper) by StephenAinsworth Daydreaming  (Pencil on paper) by StephenAinsworth
All in all I'm really pleased how this has come out, I cropped the reference image to focus on the gorgeous expression on the lions face.
Wolffs carbon pencils for the background and log, Tombow Mono pencils for the lion.
Slightly smaller than A3.
Approximately 120 hrs

great work! I really like the realism in this one, also the way the lion's facial expression seem 'fluid'

Nice pencil work! It's somewhat difficult for me to tell that this is actually a drawing and not a black and white photograph.

That lion looks like how I feel a majority of the year, spaced out for a good chunk of it and too tired to even sit upright.
