This is my newest re-make of a piece from my senior exhibition over a year ago based off proverbs 28:1 - "A righteous man is as bold as a lion" I finally feel like this is much closer to what I had originally envisioned the piece to look like.
The Lion's roar mimics the man's scream to communicate the idea of power and boldness. The original line work from the first image shown in this project (a pencil on paper sketch) was scanned into Photoshop, digitally enhanced, and then used to re-create the same concept as a fine art digital painting.
The fire and bright glow of the lion helps the animal to look more "ghostly" communicating the essence of a lion which is what my previous paintings/illustrations lacked.
I'm glad to have captured the power that this biblical concept truly deserves!
