Leopard VS Cheetah Vs Jaguar by ARVEN92 Leopard VS Cheetah Vs Jaguar by ARVEN92
Because DA is lacking something like this :3

Quick tutorial.
Because some people totally asked for it XD

This way I'll make it clear that the two big cats present in "Africa" are LEOPARDS and not cheetahs or jaguars.
Meanwhile, since LOTS of people get confused between these three cats, I wanted to help in any way that I could :)
For the comic of Africa, I researched all I could about leopards and how to draw them, and this included making them different from cheetahs and jaguars.
I thought I'd use what I've learned to help fellow Deviants telling these cats apart.

The drawings of leopard, cheetah and jaguar were made without any reference, but just based on the knowledge I had. I did use a reference for the exact colours though. I'm sorry about the jaguar's coat, I didn't have the exact gold tone ;;

I hope this helps anyone who needs it!

Things that I forgot to add/were suggested by other people:

*Cheetahs can purr continuously, unlike Jaguars and leopards
*The spots on melanistic leopards and jaguars are still visible from a particular angle and with particular amount of light: [link] [link] [link]
*There is another variant for the cheetah, called "Lesser spotted cheetah", in which the animal has few to almost no spots on a tawny background. [link] Extremely rare in nature.

Cats are killin' me. They seem to look like dogs most of the time (when I'm tryin' to draw them).
