This is more my thing. Challenge 53 is Naoto Horiguchi’s Lion. He has a fantastic, almost floral mane and a nice face.
Yet again, I could have shaped the details better if I had used bigger paper but used the same size I usually do (twice!). Also, maybe I should have paid more attention to the final image. Horiguchi slanted the bridge of the nose up and made the face more 3D with great effect.
Apparently, I drew in the crease pattern on one of these that I did. But I lost that one, so I did a new one without lines. Then I lost that one and found the first one. Here he is outside.
I wasn’t sure I could find a sort of savannah-like place, so I made him a tree, which is also there.
The pattern’s on a 24 grid (so 3x2x2x2), so it’s not too hard to decipher.
