Celebration of the Leo by Psicomma Celebration of the Leo by Psicomma
Here's m'y entry for Kyoux's contest : kyoux.deviantart.com/art/CONTE…

I know Kyoux said to not focus on the main characters but i couldn't help myself ; i had to draw Nivan ! I wanted to make a tribute to this amazing character (and It's his birthday, on top of that!) i did this with copic marker (except for his skin, cause my beige marker was dead) and i chose to draw a wound on the background to represent his heavy past, and the two lions are symbols of his personality : the blue lion symbolizes his noble heart (as blue is the color of royalty) and the red lion symbolizes his fighting spirit. 

So here it is, this is the way I see Nivan, as a proud lion. Happy birthday Nivan, and thanks to Kyoux from the bottom of my heart for creating such beautiful characters and for enlighting my days with her stunning pieces of art! 
Thanks a lot Kyoux! <3

I love the composition and colors of this picture. 
It reminds me Chinese graphics. Everything is consistent and fits together (I really like smoke, Nivan hair and lions crest)

I like Nivan pose - he has really sexy chest :D 

Really good picture, thank you my dear :blowkiss:

And sorry for oversight. I hope you are not angry :hug:

I'm so happy so like it! Yes I kinda got inspired from the chinese graphics, (I would've like to get some reference and stuffs, but I had no Internet when I was drawing... It's a miracle I found a way to post it on Deviant!) but especially, i wanted to organize the picture sort of like a tattoo; I used vivid colors, and took a bunch of elements, (elements that could represent Nivan, in a way) and I put them together to make something "complete" let's say... Talking about tattoo; to redraw manually Nivan's tattoo was a real pain in the ass! xD (I'm joking, it was hard i admit it, but i enjoyed it, I love polynesian/tribal style tattoos)

And I just can't find the words to tell you how happy I am now! (When I saw your answer at first, i thought "OMG! It's Kyoux! She answered! Ohmygodohmygodohmygod!! And... OMFG! She digs it! She digs it! She digs my drawing! What a wonderful day ! I'm so  happy!") And I could never be angry at you, it is fine, no problem, talented people are always busy, it is normal. :D I'm not angry, I am very happy, and very grateful! :> (and I talk too much, damn it! >.<)
