In honor of the recent passing of Cecil the lion a few weeks back in Zimbabwe, Disney animator Aaron Blaise paid tribute to this beautiful creature.

Blaise who is best know for his animation work in Disney classics such as the The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, shared an image on his blog last week.

Shared on his blog he wrote, “I am a HUGE animal lover an it drives me crazy when I see these beautiful creatures destroyed for no good reason. When I heard the news about Cecil I got inspired to create a tribute image. It’s not much but hopefully it will make people think.”

In addition, he also shared a clip of the artwork and the drawing process.

What are your thoughts on this powerful image?
