I drew this beautiful lioness when I visited the zoo one day. :meow:

...Sadly, I can't remember her name now. (>.<)

Wow, where do I start?

'Vision' - 4/5

You've done a stupendous job creating this, I can almost see exactly what you had planned to draw out. You've done more then simply re-create the image of a creature onto paper. You drawn out a rather charming image. Her eyes are absolutely beautiful and draw you in with a power that I swear you drew in on purpose. I can see you looking upon this creature with wonder and you've done a great job recreating that.

'Originality' - 4/5

Sketching animals is as old as painting on caves, how it is accomplished however has evolved. You done a lovely job with this giving it a sense of individuality. I wouldn't have to see your name on it to know it is from your creative mind. The way you've captured the expression is more 'human' then it would appear in nature. I feel that touch brings it much more closer to a truly original piece then simply copying what you see. You went the extra mile and drew what you saw in your mind and heart then simply with your eyes and it really shows.

'Technique' - 4.5/5

The level of detail within this is simply brilliant in my eyes, you've done a superb job from the wonderfully fleshed out features to the softness of the fur. With the majority of the work obviously in those eyes that simply draw you in. I feel you did well to enhance that with the rather softer and lighter touches in other areas, as well as with the fur.

I swear this is showing your progression as more then an artist but as someone who can manipulate the tools at her disposal to her advantage to create the image in your mind. It's incredibly detailed where it counts and it really does show.

'Impact' - 4.5/5

Speaking of that level of detail where it counts, those eyes, the subtle tilt of the head. Everything about this simply draws you in and makes you look. From the rather powerful look from the eyes to the rather 'regal' look overall. This is one beautiful and striking image.

I would have to say this is one of your best pieces so far in my eyes and certainly one of the most charming you've produced. It certainly contains that little bit of 'heart' you seem to place within most of your works and it certainly has character. Simply superb. I do hope you are as proud of this as I would be.
What do you think?
