Dandy Lion by CalamityChemist Dandy Lion by CalamityChemist
Guys I swear my artwork will start being less boring. Hang in there--HANG IN THERE.

This one was a fun concept to work on, haha. Normally, I donít do visual puns, but I love lions (and Victoriana in general), so I made an exception for this. I went with a simple approach, for the colors, so it was a good piece to just mindlessly tinker on.

Itís digital + watercolor bleed. I hope that you enjoy it! <3

The only thing that would make this more awesome would be if he had whiskers that were waxed into a handlebar moustache.
