Knafomania responds:

thanks buddy [[:

Whoa, that is insane detail there, nicely done. What inspire you to draw this?

Knafomania responds:

sort of my move to the states and going to an art school with people that make me believe i can do whatever i want ...still human inside but outside...lion symbolizes a lot of stuff in different cultures..the space\galaxy texture is cuz even the lion is not enough to symbolize my feelings
space is...endless ,everything .
or something like that ...not exactly sure but it felt right [:

even though space is empty the dark shape isnt black
just layers of pure purple until its that dark [:

it's so beautiful... The color choice is perfect. Love how it's sparkling like the walls in The Labyrinth. There's just something so celestial about this. The cold purple with a hint of greyish blue fits the creature's gazing wise expression. Also thanks for upping such an HD pic, I can zoom in and explore each stroke of paint like craters on a lonely planet. And as I see this picture, the sun is rising. Could've come up with a better name though, like Dawning Mane The Wild Sage or some shit like that, yeah I noticed the silhouette is a lion... it's gotta be.
