Ever since Adryane started posting her dazzling pixel art in the gallery, I have been in awe of her talent and absolutely fascinated with the technique. (See her fabulous work here: http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/ideas/showgallery.php?ppuser=2512&cat=500) When I see a new technique I admire, I just can't stop thinking about it until I try it for myself. This technique is just such FUN! If you haven't tried it, give it a whirl! The ideas it will give you just in the attempt are worth it.
The color scheme of this lion ended up being that of Adryane's beautiful "Alcippe": http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/ideas/showphoto.php?photo=133418&ppuser=2512. Adryane, you are such an inspiration. This nod to my favorite book series is dedicated to you. Thank you!
And thank you so much for looking.
