TheLion Spirit Animal
Aslan is a major character in C. S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia series. Though I did not paint the subject from the movie character, I felt the resulting image was one that displayed the same power and intelligence as that of the stories character, and thus felt the name fit.

The evolution of this drawing was made in pre-drawing stages. As in I did approximately 4 other smaller drawings as I figured how I would treat the subject(One of the smaller drawings is still available “Look at Me” This is not the first time I have studied the animals’ form, back in the late 90’s I drew for Walt Disney Animation Australia. During this time I worked on the Lion King 2 movie. The development process at Disney took us to view and sketch the animals in person, to get familiar with their movements and view from different angles…
Unfortunately, it also meant that with the recent few drawings I really struggled to have them not come out looking like Simba or Mufasa.
Where Lions once ruled, they are now quietly disappearing, there are half as many African lions than there were 25 years ago.
With fewer than an estimated 25,000 in Africa, lions are listed as vulnerable to extinction by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, which determines the conservation status of species. Lions were once found on three continents but have since disappeared from 94 percent of their historic range. Jul 18, 2019
