Hi, this was drawn with graphite only.

The white areas are achieved by doing...nothing ;) its negative drawing, basically leave the white areas white. Shadows/surrounding tone creates the appearance of depth. 

Thanks :)

Did you draw this in graphite or charcoal? And how do you get the white hairs on top of the black areas? Awesome work! :)

You did really really well, I love the short hair texture you've given them, I'm really curious as to how you scribbled it :XD:

I love this, where did you get the idea!? It's so rare that lions are drawn in a peaceful way like this, but its not cartoony and kidlike at all. You're very talented. Again, nice job.

This is an incredible work of art. The realism of it is simply stunning, and you put a brilliant amount of detail into the fur and the male lion's mane. Wonderful artwork.

That's amazing! The fur is great and so is the grass. I really like the whiskers of the male, too.
