GREAT color scheme on a magnificent Lion. I LOVE everything about your piece of ART. The face of the lion is so realistic, it seems that he is right here on my computer screen.
His eyes are soft but yet aleart, his mane is majestic, his face truly appears as if he is in contemplation, the nose is perfection; his paws almost look soft and safe enough to reach out and touch to pet him.
Your work of ART is truly one of Excellence!

Hi Sarah,
Congratulations! "Contemplation in Pastels" has been chosen by the Puzzle's Arcade's panel of Judges as a winner of the group's Award of excellence.

The comment from the panel: "It is well finished and the use of traditional media is more time-consuming than digital media and that implies more patience. It really does have a silky feel to it, which softens the subject matter..."

You may pick up your graphic's award icon code at the following [link]

It is featured on the group's home page here [link] and on the website index page. [link]

This diviation is also now eligible and will be entered into the competition for diviation of the month .

Your points rewards will be sent to your DA message center.
Again congratulations
from the Puzzle Arcade Staff.:)
