I love the grass and brush that she's lounging in. I bet if you play with her texture a bit, giving stronger details, that she would look more natural in this environment. To me, and I only speak for myself, she looks too smooth for this scene. That said, her present state would go quite well elsewhere.

Even so, I like this scene.

Dave, you are too critical. She fits well in the environment. Lighting is good. As usual, your foliage is exceptional. Maybe you just had to work harder than usual.[smile]

[smile] In your eyes only Dave. You have made her look far better than I could. She looks so nestled in there amongst the beautiful grass. Funny that many lions in the wild look rather tatty, when they look smoother it means they have plenty of good food I think.  You can get the master of drawing animals as you are so capable.  [smile] Robyn

This is stunning Dave and I love her to bits.  SHe is indeed a well fed lioness and very happy to be resting in that beautiful long grass.

Thanks Rita and for your input I lost a lot of detail because it was painted much larger and turned into a clip so I could place and size her plus the overlay layer to give the highlight bleached her out a bit

thanks Don I think i would do a male lion as they aren't so short coated and would give more scope on the fur

Thanks Robyn for your kind encouraging words I found the flatness of the lioness coat with darker ends, to give a fleck, a real headache
cheers Dave
