Lion of St. Mark


A quick sketch in honor of St. Mark, whose feast day it is (for about another 40 minutes.):7[>

wow, Lawrence, that is really powerful. Great job! I hope we will see a finished version?

I hope that we won't have to wait until the feasts of Matthew, Luke, and John to see the corresponding angel, ox, and eagle.

Hey, one of my favorite of all the pieces I've seen from you, Lawrence! My only criticism is that I think it gets a little confusing/crowded with where the end of the tail ends up.

Lawrence,

This is excellent! Great balance and composition, overall. I do agree with Ben that the final "tuft" could be a tad clearer, but that's a real nit.

What kind of reference (if any) did you use for this?

This is way cool. Have you thought of designing a book cover for the Gospels? That'd be really neat.

i love this drawing, im actually getting a tattoo of it, with something different on the book. i think this is a great drawing, is a final sketch in order?

Hi there,
Awesome picture!

It might be a silly question, but the symbol the lion is holding, what does it represent ?

Thanks heaps
