Der Tod eines Loewen by AlectorFencer Der Tod eines Loewen by AlectorFencer
An ambiguous depiction that is free for interpretation.

I tried to set the mood of the colours that fits the metaphor and its many ways how it can be seen by the viewer.
I rarely use strong colour fades like this when I work with traditional media but this image seemed to break my fear to dip my brushes into strong, unmixed paint.

It was once again a honour to work together with :iconzethelius: who has absolutely amazing ideas and visions. Whenever I come up with one idea, he often comes up with thirty. :D
Every collab with him is a great experience. Check out his gallery!

This painting will be available at Mephit Mini Con.

Lineart done by: :iconzethelius:
colouring: me

Thanks a lot for looking. <3

I love it!! I drew a lion once for a Religion assignment, and didn’t really do anything else so it has become a bit of a joke for my friends and me. So I see how beautiful this picture is and it makes me want to draw another more magnificent one, I really love it!
