Ok, so basically here's the back story, seeing as it's a WIP thread:

Really like the idea of this challenge. Have an old bit of artwork that I did as an idea for a valentines day present (corny I know) but never worked it up into anything really presentable. Have wanted to go back to it and now's my chance to adapt it to use in this challenge. I'll be using a mix of Illustrator and Photoshop, depending on which direction I decided to go in.

Originally, it's a drawing of a lion with a heart shaped mane (the girl in question was a Leo) The chain of thought for adapting it to this was basically:

King Of Hearts > Lion king of the Jungle > Heart shaped mane fits theme > Add royal props to really sell the idea.

This was the original doodle I did when I was sketching it out:

This was what I came up with after some work in Illustrator:

And this is a quick paint over in Photoshop of the sort of thing I had in mind:

Obviously this is very very early on. Haven't really decided what style to go for. Can't decide between doing a cartoon style with lots of black lines and block colours or to do a more refined digital paint up. So any feedback or suggestions at this point are most welcome.

You need to give more thought to how that crown would really sit on the lion's head, especially with all that mane.
