felt like practicing flexibility and stretching a little bit, so I quickly sketched up a lioness, running towards her prey.
Regardless that the face and details are cartoony, the movement wasn't meant to be realistic, so if the anatomy or movement seems exaggerated, it's supposed to.
This isn't meant to be Nala, or any other Disney or other studio's lion character; she's just a random lioness.
Blame all the lion documentaries I've been watching lately--I've always liked lions but I never really paid attention to them as a species, at least not the same I do wolves. I'm really coming to admire them, and I'm learning a lot more about their behavior and social structure than I thought I would.
Well, I'm taking it as a nice experience to focus on something else besides just canines for awhile, and it's the first educational thing I've watched in months.
