Casey’s Lion

This is a picture that I posted on the drawing forum with an explanation of how I figured the scale of the lion so that he is standing just behind the woman. The woman was drawn from a topless photogragh. I raised the nipples up half an inch and made up her clothes myself. I couldn't do the pose from just my imagination though, but I did change the features of the face somewhat and the face in the background was entirely from my imagination, and from my calculater, since I figured the face to fit the space exactly the way the way I wanted it too. If you look in the eyes in the background there is a bald eagle in each one, though you may not be able to make it out at this scale.

I grew up on the prairie cap rock of the Texas panhandle , and started to read on my own from the Encyclopedia Britannica before I started school. My parents had little education but probably never said no to any book salesman or book club. In the sixth grade I was reading at the grade level of 13.5 at three times the average adult speed with comprehension in the top percentile. When our daughter was four I noticed that on her own she was drawing a wicker chair. I had done some drawing as a teenager but there wasn't much I could show her, so I started doing research through the inter-library loan system and borrowed books from private and public libraries across the U.S. With this I added a little of my own ideas such as the little amount of spherical trigonometry I picked up to get a handle on perspective. So here I am, and at 51 I still have never physically been in an art class or art museum.
