This started out as just some practice for a lioness body but then I decided to give it some colours and then I found this old old old old character I made back in 2006 -- [link] named Sanori (random name is random). I did keep the randomly black and red colours of her original design just for the sake of nostalgia but if I ever make her into an actual character I'd most likely turn her all black and just have her be a black lioness... not sure yet.
Of course the 'red' could be some kind of paint of mud and berries, ceremonial or something? Not many black lions though... Oh well, just a random character redo.

Anyway, have a random 'sparkly' lioness.
Ignore the anatomy, it's.... 'off' I know :I
Yes... I did use reference images, both were fair/free use images.

Plain black pelt --

Don't use.
