Previously I had quilled a cartoon lion which I call A lion share of Love, but till now I have not dared to quill a lion, as I wanted to do it justice when I really got down to it. However, I did quill a Tiger very early into my journey into quilling which turned out pretty well considering the fact that I could hardly quill at that time and the basic shapes are all too loosely quilled in my opinion.
I have quilled him, my style which I think is quite unique so far, using various basic shapes that look like hair rather than coils.
Here is a closer look

I used a picture of the lion to get the colors right and have combined colors to get a more natural look.
The grassy plain has been glued on top so that the lion looks like its standing behind at a distance and I have not put many leaves on the tree in order to get the viewer to focus on the lion rather than the background.
I would love to hear what you all think.
