Lion Puzzle Project:
Here is an image of the final consumer product, the Lion Shaped Puzzle, published by Sunsout.
Here is the image of the final lion artwork I created using layers of different lion photographs. Note, I did take all these different lion photographs with my Nikon, the inspiration and subject of these lovely lions came from different wildlife sanctuaries. I did NOT ever go out in the wild to take photographs of lions, these lions were actually born and bred in captivity as part of a breeding program at the SF Zoo and other wildlife preserves to keep them from extinction as a species.
Here is a screen-grab of when I Was creating the lion in Photoshop. There ended up being at least 5- layers of different background scenery and lion images put together to create this image.
Been working on this lion paradise in the shape of a lion for a while.. I've lost count of how many lions, how many layers at this point.. Each and every single element you see in this image is a separate photograph from my Nikon, on a separate layer.. The face of the main lion is made of four different composite images I took of the lion. The lion at the San Francisco Zoo, is the one who is the grand inspiration for this!
