Awakened - Leopard portrait by Canis-Lupess Awakened - Leopard portrait by Canis-Lupess
I painted this in summer 2005 to increase my personal portfolio.

It is about A3 in size and done in mixed media including acrylic, wcp, cp, black drawing pen and some graphite maybe. The paper used was fabriano hotpress, 140lbs.

The spots could be tedious and this one took a while but I was quite happy with the result.

Absolutely beautiful work! It looks very realistic, while still keeping it's origins in tact, you can tell it's a painting, which is something I like! :)

This has got to be your best work I've seen on here. The interplay between the lighting and the spots, with the curvature of the light over the musculature and compounding that by the curvature of the spots themselves interacting with both the light and musculature really makes this piece believable above all else. Having spent a good amount of time around big cats, I'm usually pretty nit-picky about them as subjects, but you nailed it. VERY impressed.
