Hi Everyone!:wave:
Here is a piece that I've been working on, as you can see, this isn't much of a WIP:o . A man who bought my tiger piece (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=850592) wanted a partner piece as well, which I was happy to do! I've been wanting to paint one of the gorgeous leopards for awhile, and I'm very pleased with how this is turning out. This is pastel on colourfix. C&C welcome.
Thanks for looking!
Paige:heart:

this is coming along beautifully! Congrats on the commission :D
As others have mentioned, love the focused expression - definitely looks to be on the prowl, in his element.

Wow. You got the hang of pastel light years ahead of where I was at your age. I am more than impressed, as always when I see your work :-)

Thanks Barb, I have posted an update!:D Thank you very much Robert, the eyes in the reference are that green-blue-gray color. I'm not sure if you can tell from this photo, but I did add a few specks of the bright blue shown in the background on the eyes. Thank you Nicki, so glad to hear you like it!
Well, here's an update. Almost finished, just a few finishing touches. All advice and comments welcome. Again, thank you for the encouragement everyone!

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments Dave, Nancy, Tony, and Karen!

Well we can now label this fellow as finished! As you can see, there isn't much of a difference between this photo, and the previous update, I've mainly changed the leg on our right and added bits of blue throughout. Again, thank you everyone for the encouragement throughout this piece.:heart: Although this guy has already been sent off, I will still listen to all C&C.:)
