This is kinda cool, but I don't know. Lion "roar, hunt and pounce" are what's associated with it? Pounce is more like a jaguar, and well, I don't see much of an artistic view of the lion. It seems too straight forward, lacking further depth. There doesn't seem to be any meaning in the piece. The concept may seem to be making a lion, out of text that is related to it, but in actuality there should be an overarching concept that is fulfilled through the typography.
Lions symbolize significantly more than you didn't touch. I would've liked to see a more varied word choice, and significance to where words are. I see you put "hunt" in the lion's face, and roar as the mane. This was good, as the mane and mouth are the two most related aspects of the lion to its roar.
I do actually completely agree with your comments.. Just one thing to note is that I did this when I was 16/17 (I am now nearly 23). I was lot less of a mature designer then, and looking back I would do this differently and consider the concept more. Heh, I may even give it a go some time!

But thanks for commenting and being interested in my work! I do appreciate it!
I generally agree, Pyrokakisho. In the context of art for a kid's room, though, this "simplified" lion could be a winner. The thing that stuck out most to me was that ricky's description was basically redundant (no offense).
