Aw! yay amazing. Like everyone says, I love the expressions. I love how you drew his mane, you're the best at it lol, you're the one that got me wanting to draw it that way because of the last commission I got from you of this pair hehe and I loved it ever since then! So thank you for that! I love both my pics, thanks so much!
Your shading is amazing in this picture. I love the how you made is so soft-looking, whilst still keeping some of the roughness to it. I love the poses, and I REALLY love the composition of this picture, with the two adult lions' head towards each other and the male's body in front of the female's. Their expressions are just amazing, I especially love the female's affection and kind of a little smirk, the cub's curiousity and the male's affection.
Sorry, 'm not trying to sound clever or smart, I don't know much about this stuff, but I just wanted to let you know how much I loved this picture. ^^
