Red Lion


Haven't uploaded anything in newgrounds for 2 years. Decided now to upload stuff that I never got around to actually finishing (or make a breakthrough to finishing).

So instead I'll describe what my reasons for drawing it.

This one I drew when my cousin came and visit from out of state. She saw what I can draw and made a random request of drawing a lion. Though I never thought I would actually do it, sort of did it on a whim one day and came out looking pretty rush and crappy looking back on it. But inspiration was definitely the color RED. I came back after my marriage in Vietnam to America so I wanted the design to be inspired by Vietnam. I google image "Vietnam Lion" and ended up with festival dragons I think, look more like dragons then lion but I'll take what I get. Wanted to add more, and kept pushing it until I ended up with this. Kinda wanted to detail it more but that was all I could poop out during the time. Don't feel like touching it anymore though.

Wow amazing

Wow this was amazing work the amount of detail is beautiful the color is just meshed so with with other colors I would normally suggest some background but this was perfect as is and was just a great art piece I like it alot and added it as a fave so nice job indeed I would love to see more of your work here sometime soon

Not a single thing this is a masterpiece


This looks masterful! A bit hazy, but notably incomplete - it could've been simply the style of drawing. I like the light, and how the characters both blend together. The lion's face in particular looks pretty inspiring! A creatively grim and beautiful duo.

Thanks CD, it was pretty ambitious of me to push it this far. Glad there some feelings on it that came across.

Would rate again.

ZaneZansorrow responds:

Would say thank you again LuckyLime-O, eh I mean LuckyTime-O :3

Yo Zane - it's a shame you didn't finish it, I'd say this is one of your best examples of colourized work!

Still, great story behind it, and if nothing else, a piece that tells a story is totally worth showing off.

ZaneZansorrow responds:

Thanks Linty, I definitely agree with that. Dunno how I can re replicate the colors from what I did here but I'm sure I'll figure it out one day

This looks awesome. That lion is so intense and your color really makes it look fierce.

ZaneZansorrow responds:

Thanks Twisted :3
