Rampant Lion And Shield Design by WildSpiritWolf Rampant Lion And Shield Design by WildSpiritWolf
This is :iconjakoobee: 's completed commission of a tribal rampant lion with a pair of Scottish thistles and a shield that states "Audentes Fortuna Iuvat" which in Latin means, "Fortune Favors the Bold."

:bulletred: I do apologize for the obnoxious watermarks but they have been put in place to help cut down on the prolific theft of my artwork as well as to protect the commissioned art that was designed for my clients' use. It is an intensely frustrating thing seeing a design you worked so hard to create being reposted or even sold elsewhere without your knowledge or consent and that does not even begin to cover how my clients feel about it. And that is why the watermarks exist and are going to remain. Any snarky comments regarding them will be marked as spam. :bulletred:

Please do not copy, trace, alter, or redistribute this anywhere in any way, shape, or form!

This design was created specifically for the commissioner's use only. If you would like a design custom created for you, drop me a note or see my FAQ journal entry here: [link] if you need more info.

Lineart: Micron Pen Size 03

I really like the font you used for the slogan and how Scotlandy the whole thing feels. Scottlandy is also now a word.
Way cool and so true
Holy shit this is wierd. I was just thinking about commissioning someone to do a lion with a Scottish thistle in its mouth to commemorate my heritage while reminding me to be brave. I was actually thinking about what the design would look like in YOUR style, so this is even wierder. Naturally, this looks wonderful. I love the Latin words, the placement of the thistles, the design and pose of the lion, and generally the whole feel to it. I am not a fan of the shield, but it looks very crisp and makes sense as a place to hold the words. Also, the shield would reflect that theme of boldness or bravery (in my opinion), so very well done once again, WildSpiritWolf. ;)

This is really rude you know, coming to someone else's art and begging for votes. You're more or less spamming their page...
