As the source image is not very clear, I focused on one portion of the chicken that looked bit better to me and selected it.
From that selection only I have created different shapes for my lion's hair. I used a lot of warping, resizing, flipping, rotating, masking in order to create diversity and blend them as good as possible.
I added sky backround, light beams, flattened image and added a lot of adjustment layers: gradients, brightness/contrast and two types of filters that I have never used before but which proved themselves to be very efficient for the overall effect I was looking for: under Artistic/ Sponge and Watercolor.

Hope you like it!

awesome image looks a bit like a bear because lions have much shorter hair on their faces but that doesnt make a difference. i love the mood. very high marks good luck

just WONDERFULLY done.. he is more bear then Lion. just because of the tones and the fluffy fluffiness. hehehe.. Even though it has heavy brown tones and is very dense.. because of the light work.. you could poke him with a pin and he'd blow up like a balloon. JUST AMAZING!!!

Looks more like a bear/dog than a lion, and the light side is a bit too dodged...

avatar BlueSparkle

You just put together a new type of wild animal... Wonderful work... I agree with CMYK though that it's a bit to light on that one side... good luck.

Very clever use of the source & very nicely executed....but would have to agree the lighting could do with being toned down a bit
