Frosty Lion by jackieocean Frosty Lion by jackieocean
This was a quick little illustration done for the Illustration Friday topic "the zoo". I always wonder what the animals at the zoo do when the weather turns cold, especially the animals that usually live in warmer climates. For example, lions live in the Serengeti, not the harsh winters of upstate New York. Yeah, he has that big fur coat, but still. Cold is cold.

Brushpen for the linework, Photoshop for the coloring. Finished in November of 2007.

Also, would anyone be interested in prints? If so please let me know and I'll make them available ASAP. But only say so if you're actually serious about purchasing a print.
