Thank you Ethel!
I like that "a little mouse ear", your rite it does look like a mouse ear.
Alot of the fur does look way too 3 dimensional. Once I'm finished I will be printing out a gray scale of the reference photo and my drawing and will work on fixing the mouse ear and other areas. I think its suppose to be an eyebrow. Do lions have eyebrows? I don't know.
Thank you Joel!
I've been working on the left side trying to fix it. I discovered I have a strong dislike for gray. My daughter took one look at the picture today and just went oooh not one of those good ooohs it was more of a suble ick. Which was really my opinion. So it was bothering me and instead of quitting for the day I worked on it some more and I think its looking better. I will work on it more tomorrow and will post later on in the day.
