I’ve had the image of a lion with a starry nebula mane in my mind for quite some time now. I made several attempts to get him down on paper, and finally here is a one version I like. Perhaps this character will continue to emerge in my artwork, I like his little crown of stars :) I was listening to the Silmarillion audiobook , the Ainulindalë chapter while painting. I think it helped .
ACEO type painting created with kyanite and tropical sunrise iridescent pigments by Daniel smith. Stars and highlights made with Tri-art Mirror Paint -- I think it’s fairly obvious this is impossible to show through a scan, so here is a video showing the glitter effects: >>>> https://instagram.com/p/8Yqzf7khqW/ <<<<
