These are a couple of studies and sketches I've been doing lately to more firmly establish my ideas for the piece I'll be doing for my Figure Drawing final project. This is, I think, one of my more intriguing characters. I tend to gravitate back to her when I'm feeling more introspective. Hopefully, the final piece will turn out well. Three of my friends and I went up to Rock Canyon Park yesterday, where I took a bunch of pictures of them crouching and crawling on the rocks for reference. Now I just need to go back to the Bean Museum and take more pictures of lion hair and find some good pictures online of some lion skulls and I should be ready to go. I'm pretty excited about this picture.
This character has appeared previously in these two pieces from 2007: "Hero" and "Maybe I'm a Lion".
