There were a few minor issues with the last lion I painted for my son. The major issue being that he was afraid of it...so I decided to start anew, and paint something that he would hopefully enjoy. This little guy is what came out when I started painting and my son has been very pleased. His smiles and "roarrring", let me know for sure that this has been given his stamp of approval.
Sometimes, the old adage "out with the old and on with the new" is rather correct.
