Actually, I don't know that his name is Chester....but I was thinking of Cheetos Chester Cheetah and that's what I wrote for the subject head. I have no idea what I am going to call this one. Anyway, as I ramble on...I love this guy! I thought he had a serious but cute face. Most cheetahs have a doggie face (Lord, don't hit me Jamie, I mean it in the nicest way, I swear!!!), but this one had a cat face and he was really stylin,' so I just had to draw him. As always, c/c welcome!

Beautiful, Lahree! I thought it was a painting, then I remembered you do CPs. "Chester" is wonderful! :clap:

Good work Lahree! Once again so detailed, I like the way you have kept the background muted so as not to distract from the Cheetah.

Well done! :clap:

Another Fantastic piece of art from you Lahree, I also really like the "pose". The fur appears so soft & realistic. Beautiful!

Thank you all so much for your kind and gracious comments! I very, very much appreciate them. :D

Jeri - he is on Stonehenge paper (done with colored pencil) and he is about 11x17 or so.

I want to do a cougar next, or some other big cat. I found that I really like doing animals because it's fun to try to capture an expression or feeling.

Thanks again, y'all! You make my head swell!
