Amur by ARVEN92 Amur by ARVEN92
Ohoho, slight change from usual, eh? :)

Well, just to show you that I can draw cats too :)

See, lately, I desperately needed to draw a cat. And this is my first time at a realistic one, so I hope you like it :D

It's an Amur leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis), the rarest wild cat. I drew this on black paper, and slightly edited it on Photoshop to get the original 3D effect which the scanner killed.

I like how fluffy it is <3 Maybe I made it too fluffy? O: Duh, I have no idea.

Anyway, I used this reference, especially for the spots: [link]

I hope you like it!

This is very good. Even if you used a reference for this drawing it came out really well. I use references alot as well, and I know it helps when you're drawing something new & unfamiliar. It shows that you're willing to learn new things and "test" them out and I'm impreseted. Now on to the drawing The technique you used was a good idea, it looks like fur. Color coordination was spot on, I looked at the reference of the animal you were drawing or assisted you to draw. I guess the only bad thing is that you should of covered the space seperating the chin & the chest but I understand why you didn't, cause you don't want them to combined and things like that. Overall it's really good. And well done on your forst try :3
