WIP - Lion Pyrography Update

two lions pyrography in progress
After taking some time off from this for a commission, I did quite a bit today. The grass was done with the writing pen, which is shaped like a loop. (I will write about the pens in a later post.) The process is the same as if I were drawing grass with a pencil, except the pyrography pen is thicker. I'm going to add some shadow to the grass next, and then finish the lions' limbs. Also notice the dark spot behind the male lion's head. I am going to make the whole background dark like this to bring the lions out. That will take a while because the pen needs to be very hot and the heat transfers to your fingers so you have to stop frequently to let it cool off a bit.
