ANIMAL GALLERY

Mandrill by Arielle Lyon

The mandrill is one of my favorite apes. It goes back to 1994 when I first watched The Lion King. Rafiki is a Swahili word meaning, Friend. However, when watching BBC Earth, I realized that mandrills are not that friendly after all!

Jellyfish by Arielle Lyon

Drawing a jellyfish was more of a task than I first thought. I love watching animal documentaries and my favourite is Blue Planet. Jellyfishes are animals despite lacking a few organs! They come in all shapes and sizes and are quite vicious creatures!

African Egret by Arielle Lyon

I’m a huge fan of The Lion Guard, part of The Lion King franchise. In the cartoon there’s a character named Ono, he is the keenest of sight and a zoologist! I wanted to draw what Ono would be in real life and there he is!

African Hippopotamus by Arielle Lyon

I’m a huge fan of The Lion Guard, part of The Lion King franchise. In the cartoon there’s a character named Beshte, he is the strongest of the Pride Lands! I wanted to draw what Beshte would be in real life and there he is!

Hyena by Arielle Lyon

I’m a huge fan of The Lion Guard, part of The Lion King franchise. In the cartoon there’s a character named Jasiri, she is the leader of her clan in the Out Lands. I wanted to draw what Jasiri would be in real life and there he is!

Caribbean Reef Shark by Arielle Lyon

My favorite underwater animal is the shark. My favorite is the Caribbean Reef Shark. I love its mentality and looks. I admire sharks ever since I got scared out of my mind as a toddler who watch JAWS by accident. However, my fear became an obsession.

Octopus by Arielle Lyon

Talk about an animal I don’t know if I’ll ever draw again despite loving octopuses with all of my heart! Those smart and amazing little creatures are quite hard to draw and demand a lot of patience. This was my first attempt at drawing and octopus and became a commission as well.

Meerkat by Arielle Lyon

Meerkats are one of my favourite animals. It’s not just because Timon is one of them, but because of their personality and their strong abilities despite being so small. These animals can eat poisonous scorpions without problems!

Guppy By Arielle Lyon

After The Lion King, my favourite movie is The Little Mermaid. I was always intrigued about Flounder’s appearance. In The Little Mermaid television cartoon series, Flounder admits being a guppy. So, I looked it up and this is Flounder!

Zebra Eye by Arielle Lyon

This was a sub-contract through an artist I work with and we praise each other all the time for our work. Because I’m known for the Disney style, this was perfect for me! A gothic Disney girl for an author who would use it as her logo.

Honeybadger by Arielle Lyon

I’m a huge fan of The Lion Guard, part of The Lion King franchise. In the cartoon there’s a character named Bunga, he is the bravest of the Pride Lands and Kion’s best friend! I wanted to draw what Bunga would be in real life and there he is!

DC Comics Beast Boy by Arielle Lyon
Lemur by Arielle Lyon

Going from the main continent of Africa to Madagascar, I wanted to draw King Julian as a real lemur and he ended up being way fluffier than most lemur would be. Haha!

African Crocodile by Arielle Lyon

I’m a huge fan of The Lion Guard, part of The Lion King franchise. In the cartoon there’s a character named Maku, he is the leader of his flock and used to be a villain who turns good. I wanted to draw what Maku would be in real life and there he is!

Batgirl Fan Art by Arielle Lyon

This fan art of Batgirl follows my personal rules for sexy commissions: no full nudity. This was a special type of commission for a regular VIP client. Batgirl being one of his favourites fictional characters he wanted half beaten like we often see with Batman or the Robins.

Mermaid Concept Art by Arielle Lyon

This mermaid is not a typical one. She belongs in The Crossbones Series by Arielle Lyon. So, she’s mine. However, I included her here to show the research that can be involved in a character concept. This mermaid is based on sharks instead of fishes and so had to be closer to reality and the tail works differently.

Superhero Character Concept Art by Arielle Lyon

This is a commission from a Fan Fiction writer. The character was Spider-Man inspired and I had a detailed description of the outfit and colours to use.

Wolverine and Original Character by Arielle Lyon

This particular commission, again, was from a Fan Fiction writer who had a very specific image in his mind. He wanted a close up of Wolverine fighting his original character. So, I had to create his character first and add Wolverine into the mix.

The Lion Guard and Original Character by Arielle Lyon

For this commission, I referred to the one I did above with Fuli. It has Maku, a character from The Lion Guard, part of The Lion King franchise. He is fighting the original character of the Fan Fiction author.

Character Concept Art by Arielle Lyon

This is a concept art of a fantasy character for a novel series set in an alternate Earth. It takes place in the early days of the Dark Ages in what will eventually be known as England, Scotland and Ireland. For that reason, research was key to have the right hairstyle, clothing and tattoos.

Female Pirate Concept Art by Arielle Lyon

In an age where Captain Jack Sparrow is popular, I drew a female pirate as a character concept for an author. It had to be an action shot on land and a scabbard as a weapon. It was simplistic but came out as a comic book style concept.

Spider-Man and Original Character by Arielle Lyon

Here we have Spider-Man fighting a superhero resembling Lady Bug. Those commissions are popular from fellow artists on Deviant Art. Especially for the Fan Fiction market. A battle panel in comic book style.

Video Game Fan Art by Arielle Lyon

This is a Nintendo character that the client wanted drawn in my style with a simplistic background. I was not familiar with the character but with some research, I was able to come up with something that made the client happy.

DC Comics Beast Boy by Arielle Lyon
Superhero Couple Fan Art by Arielle Lyon

Here we have two known superheroes, Lady Bug and Spider-Man. This was for a Fan Fiction story.

Dr. Harleen Quinzel by Arielle Lyon

This commission was a specific one where the client wanted Dr. Harleen Quinzel and not Harley Quinn. Wit that in mind, so anyone could recognize the blonde woman in the drawing, I added shades of red and blue to the hair and sad eyes hiding madness.
