vector lion face by depot-hdm vector lion face by depot-hdm
speedpainting experiment with path mixtures. Made with Freehand MX - 1,5 hrs work. Using Pathtool, gradients and mixtures...

see reference pic in my favorites. i just used that one for raw dimensioning, but nearly changed the whole face in the end,
to get that sad look in its eyes... i hope you guys enjoy.
This is as always WIP ;)

Dude, this sh!t is awesome... seriously, I am a vector artist and I see a lot of similar work as I'm sure you do, buttttttt I'VE NEVER seen someone utilize what appear to be blends (how I would describe in illustrator) Good stuff! Might inspire me to test a new style ;) but consider me impressed.

Yep blends, or color mixtures. Try it on your own... :)

Awesome job! I love the lion's expression, those eyes are incredible. Nice color scheme too, the light blue highlights contrast nicely.

This picture has an extremely weird alien robotic feel to it. I love it. Nice color choices and ... just a highly unusual style in my opinion. Very cool.

yeah, me too. But i'm kinda unsure about the color. It's like i am using this scheme every time ;)
Got a limegreen, green and dark marine blue version that could work too. Maybe i'll switch..

i already did color artworks with that violet - blue /or and pink scheme...
thanks for your comment :)
