The Vegetarian by Loopydave The Vegetarian by Loopydave
This was meant to be a quick entry for last weeks Jungle queen themed Trinquette Challenge, but deadlines and getting a bit carried away meant it was late. Again.
Was fun though... I have to paint more jungle stuff!

Pencil and ink, painted in photoshop. No leaves were harmed in the making of this painting.

I was just looking at the size of the lioness, and how she could take off the pretty girl's head with one bite.... of course then she would take out her little one too!

:D Lets just hope the lioness doesn't do that... would probably need some kind of mature label for the blood and violence if she did!

Yeah well.... let's remember the girl is "The Vegetarian" ....I'm pretty sure the lioness is not. So it could happen.

As always, so smooth and clean. Love the over all 'brown/tan' tone to the image. That rim lighting... perfect touch!

I know you want things to be PG-rating (do you?), but wouldn't it have been more fun if the little lion cub had fetched her a maple leaf to cover her ahem-you-know-what? :o

Deciduous plant based clothing is problematic at best and the woman in the picture obviously prefers clothing that will not be subject to being eaten while she wears it ;)

Oh so subjective, my beloved (and loopy) Dave.

I can see in her eyes the lust for leaves... the feels

The title actually refers to the cub with a leaf in his mouth but she could well be a vegetarian too :D
