WIP - Snow Leopard x-posted in colored Pencil Forum

Hi all I thought I would share a big project that I am working on. This is a big one for colored pencil, 16x20 on cream colored stonehenge paper. I think if I had it to do over again I would have used a grey colored paper. I used a little bit of watercolor pencils as an underpainting on some areas but mostly I am using prismacolor pencils and Brush and Pencils titanium white mixture for some of the fur areas. Photo reference is from Wildlife Reference Photos. Enjoy.

Wow, this is just incredible already! The softness you've got in the fur is so impressive. I love how the background is shaping up too. Beautiful!

Thanks everyone for commenting. The backgrounds sometimes take as long or longer than the subject. I will go back and tweak the cat after I finish the background. So glad you are enjoying the progress.

Re: WIP - Snow Leopard x-posted in colored Pencil Forum

In the reference photo there was blurry dried grass that the leopard was standing on in the foreground and I was going to go that route but decided to switch gears and make it a rock ledge. I like this much better than the way the dried grass was looking. I think it helps to make the artwork look more 3 dimensional. Still more details to add to the background but it is getting there.
