Leonard the House Lion picture book spread
Posted 5 months ago and submitted by Darren Gate | Share link: http://illo.cc/97059

I have recently been working on some sample spreads for a picture book concept entitled Leonard the House Lion. In this scene Leonard is found late at night taking a very messy shower. My favourite part of this scene was working on the foaming of the water on the top of the lion’s head, this was particularly fun to work on.

Drawn using a mixture of Adobe Photoshop and Fresco, digital and handmade textures.
