Sorry it took so long, I kept re-doing it! I tried the full-body pose with the spear first, but he looked too small and... non-kingly (this guy, though - I guess you could call him "vainglorious"). I also tried putting African ornamentation on him, but finally decided it was busy enough without it. Plus, the lion's a symbol in many cultures, so he's sort of "universal" here. Mmm, symbolism... I really enjoyed doing this - thank you!
I can still make changes! Again, the .jpg is less saturated than the .psd file. Is the bunny one okay, by the way? Should I change the size / color / detail of the spades?
