A Lion Share of Love- Quilled Cartoon Landscape Picture

I have used my usual landscape picture quilling techniques to quill this cartoon   (check my tutorial if you haven't already) created by  Cheerful Madness.

I love the way the eyes turned out and am so glad I was able to bring out the innocence of the characters doing justice to the creator of the cartoon who's work is really  fabulous.

I did not want to put plastic eyes as it seems like cheating to me. I wanted to be true to quilling!! No short cuts for me. I combined tight coils and zig-zag basic techniques to get the shape of the eyes.

Once I got the shape of the eyes, I encircled the eyes in black and used the end of the strip to create the lashes by folding it and pasting it together.

The rest is the usual. I have used zig zag basic for the mane and  tail.  Regular loose coils for the face and loose coils encircled in a darker shade for the body. The direction in which you paste the coils is important if you want to give the impression of depth to your work.

I have used honeycomb oblong shapes to form the earthy patches and for the grass I used the leafy grass shape which I used in the waterfall landscape.

I Love this piece. I hope you like it too.


  1. Here I am! I do not understand how I failed to follow your blog! And you certainly deserve it! But never too late, right? These wonderful lions are simply wonderful! :))) Your tutorials are great. Your work is neat and detailed! Congratulations!

    1. Thank You. It's an honor to have you follow my blog. I am a great fan of your blog. Your work is out of this world. I love the way you have done the grass on your emblem. I wanted to do the grass in a similar way but settled for what I did, as I would have had to fringe it manually, and I don't have anywhere near enough patience for it. But I'm glad you had the same idea and it looks senational.
