Variations of Gladiators and Lions.

Back in May 2023, I learned that BrawnyAI loves lions, and I promised him that I would make some lions just for him. I made lots of them, and while none of them were terrible, I just felt that they didn’t do enough to warrant me to post them, so I never did.

I try to always post new things that contain some sort of breakthrough, or at least something that I haven’t done before. I don’t always succeed, but some of them are still quite nice though, so I will be posting these on @GayDefiance, my extended Instagram account.

I hope that Brawny will see that I never broke my promises — that’s the one thing has truly bothered me for a while. I have in fact made several attempts of redoing these lions, and they never truly got to a point where I feel that they’re good enough. Eventually, I did posted one of them, which was Hercules wrestling the lions, but none of them were truly doing something that I felt has truly achieved the vision I had. But maybe I will get there one day. Until then, consider these as early studies to the eventual masterpiece.
