Lion Rampant

I finally painted a shirt for myself.  This is a heraldic lion.  It's blazon would be something like: sable, a lion rampant or.

I just love heraldry, and the lion rampant is on the Scottish royal flag.  I should have done the lion a bit bigger, I think, or centered it.  But I like how it turned out anyway.  My plan was to do it in black, which I did, but when I started to take the stencil off, I realised it didn't show up enough on the gray.  So I put gold over the top.
