All I want for Christmas is a not-awful lion design

Post by Tamara Paints People on Tue Oct 04, 2016 12:44 am

My lion designs are pukey, and I can't find any designs for inspiration. It's a shame because I paint mostly by request and that's a fairly common one.

Makes me shake in my boots when the little men come up to my chair because I just know one of them is going to want a damn lion.  Crying or Very sad

Please share your designs or inspiration photos! I've got lion's block!

I've never been asked to paint a lion. Do you list lions on your display? When I'm asked for a design that would take too long or a design with which I am not comfortable painting, I refer to my display and ask that they choose something listed.

That being said, there are some good lion tutorials. I like this one: https://youtu.be/TUEp12ahPC8

Really?! That's such a common one for me. I usually try to gear them towards a tiger which they go for, but it can't hurt to add more animals to my repertoire.

I paint by request at smaller private events (which is all I'm doing at the moment) so I don't have a display yet. I'm very comfortable painting by request but...GRR, LIONS. It's just one of those weird things.

Thanks for the link, that's definitely one of the better ones out there!

This is very similar to my lion, however I prefer a sandier colour, its snazaroo beige I think... which creates less of a contrast between the white (which I like) I also make it a little smaller on the face because I find that always makes it cuter!

I would attach a photo but my old laptop has died... with all my pictures on it Evil or Very Mad

laura-lou, be sure to have someone try to recover your photos, etc from the hard drive, if it's not damaged.

i was able to have that done when a laptop died years ago.

I second that, Laura-Lou. Sometimes it's fairly easy to recover photos and other data depending on why/how your laptop died.

And thanks for the suggestions, everyone. I think I have an idea in my head now for a simple lion design that wiggly little boys will sit for.

Of course now I'll probably never get another lion request again...because that's life!
