A shot of a lion in a cage, I know I can be boring but I love that theme so much.
The title made me laugh the first time I’ ve red it googling for image references.
The lion is made with Maya and rendered with MentalRay, Shave and A Haircut for fur, about 300k hair primitives.
Some postwork within photoshop for contrast and color gamma.
Tools: Maya, MentalRay, Shave and a Haircut, Photoshop
