Tap Dancing Animals Stalking their Prey

Started this one late - but here it is. Brad drew up this idea on a Napkin 2 weeks ago, and his doodle contained a lion in tap shoes walking up to some kind of 4 legged animal. The idea itself was very cute, and the thought of seeing these animals putting on a performance stuck in my brain. I just tried to add a little joke in there.

Fabulous Dave! Especially for something so fast. The "no line" look works so well with these cut-out looking animals. I especially like the slices taken out of the lion's mane.

Those hooves leading offstage are just visible enough to know something has gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Love it, Dave! The simplicity is awesome here and the zebra noticing the lion cracks me up.

very awesome!! I love the design, the legs and puddle of blood off to the side are a nice touch!

I made an adjustment to this piece. The boxy stage lights were a good idea at the time - but in hindsight I felt they fought with the shape of the hats. I refined this with some curvy stage detailing instead. You can see the changes on my blog.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Great work as always Dave. I don't want to sound like a broken record, but the simplicity really makes the whole piece flow really nice.

I like the small hint of the dead zebra off screen. Very simple but fabulous.
