“Messo” The Lion

It’s not often I get to draw like a child. To be honest, it’s pretty tough. This character fulfilled an odd request and also provided all-around fun. To arrive at the above image I used an ol’ China Marking Pencil (held in my left hand for added amusement) on Strathmore 80lb. and colored the image in Painter. I’m right-handed. Now don’t think for a minute I didn’t try real crayons at first. Oddly, a grease pencil creates better crayon texture than crayons. How’s that?
