I've always wanted to draw TLK style, but never had the skill or the right tutorial to study. I've gotten better over the years and tonight I decided to try again, and hope my cub didn't come out eye-scarring. I found your tutorial and started, and my soon-to-be lopsided lion, became something more. I saw it come together and it actually looked like a LION CUB, for the first time! I'm so grateful to you for putting this up so anyone can study it. Your amazing!!
oh, wait. i think i got it. this is so simple, why hasn't anyone thought about this before? haha i don't know why people keep making custom pencil brushes, when this looks much better. thanks for the tip!
