Hot Lion by BrianReber Hot Lion by BrianReber
Another Ed McGuinness creation. This is one of the sketches in the "Artxilla Tasty Treats" sketch book coming out through Image coming soon. Supposedly, this character goes hot and cold with his powers.. this is of course the hot version.


*Edit: I swapped out the background to show off the glows more. The reason it was originally on a white background is so it would be easier for the designers of the sketchbook to move around. Since it's online I figured I'd go ahead and put whatever I want in the back.

ooooh...pretty kitty. This only worsens my fetish for big cats...erf. Kinda reminds me of Lion-o but that's a good thing considered when I was younger I wanted to have his babies. O_o; I'm such a perv.

What does the greek on his blade mean?

I like the design; of COURSE I do, I'm a Leo :D Overall the flames could glow a little more, but the colours are gorgeous.

Oh, for anyone who wondered the same thing, I asked a Greek (~mistseeker) who reports that the word on the blade is "logos": speech, reason.

I updated the pic. It's hard to show off glows on a white background. Hope you likes.

Oh NICE! It's a whole damn lot more powerful this way! Never underestimate the power of contrasts, eh?

(the smoke is a very nice touch too... I didn't really notice it on the white background)

Funny enough, a friend of mine (~ShaperOfForms) and I once made a roleplaying world where this picture would fit extremely well. It was bascially our contemporary world with the added twist that some people had special powers based on their zodiac sign. One of the visual stunts we pulled off in the short stories, the teasers, we wrote to advertise the system was to give those signs certain battle shapes that would be vaguely visible when they went to combat. This is about as great a Leo battle shape as there could be ;P (if you're interested in those teasers, five of Fasih's are up on his account (~ShaperOfForms))

Can you throw a word or two at me for me to google the actual context of this character?

There really isn't anything online as far as description of this character. It's something Ed has plans for though, so hopefully he will get him into a comic somewhere down the line.
