Illustration Friday's theme this week has been "fierce". I still check Illustration Friday every week, even though I haven't participated in a long time. But I remembered this old college sketchbook drawing which I had even titled, "one of the Fiercer Animals," which was originally a line from Winnie the Pooh. I went through both a "lioness" phase and a "mythical creatures" phase while in college, and this creature seems to be a little of both.
In the spirit of the original intent of this blog, which was to have a place for my old artwork, I am posting this, but for some reason, I still don't feel ready to link it to the IF webpage. I guess it's just been too long.
