Re: Leopard WIP

Wow, it's impressive! I can see why you like the photo, the angle and graceful curve as he basks in the sun. Having just started WC myself and how difficult I find it, I admire your patience and talent. I did a kitty, too, and it was only part of a larger pic, and the fur, nowhere near as detailed as yours--drove me nuts even at that level.

Yours is stunning

ever the fan

Re: Leopard WIP

First off...thank you everybody who followed along with your encouragement...

A big jump here to completion. I had to push over the last couple of days to complete it. Other things on the horizon....

I wanted a sort of Renaissance portrait background rather than a natural setting...I know it must to seem weird to some of you, but that is how I saw it...

Here is his "Spotted Elegance" taking his ease...

Re: Leopard WIP

I must say that I absolutely adore the background setting, 'she' looks beautiful against it. Superb work!

Re: Leopard WIP - finished

It's just spectacular, plain and simple, unusual perspective and angle really makes it special, so natural
