Lion with an afro. 'Nuff said.
Edit: Gave some texture to the 'fro and added another shade for it.
@ mdog95: Thanks for the advice. I think I will improve it a bit before the challenge is over. Make it look more like an afro.
@ Balamoot: Thanks, but underestimated how?
Good detail, but it seems more like a tiger with a circular black background behind his head than a tiger with an afro.
Great job! I think this pic is underestimated here though...
Damn, it's meant to say "Pryde", but it's really difficult to get something that small to be readable. And thanks!
Looks like "Patre" or "Fatre" to me. I like that you didn't go for the stereotypical black guy with an afro though!
