Well this is the fourth of my five big cat series. The cheetah is such an incredible animal, so beautiful and elegant. Its beauty can only be surpassed by its incredible speed. Its amazing to me that is not mechanical can move at those incredible speeds. Well this was a great addition to the series and i hope you enjoy it.

    Wonderful work of art, like most of your work! I am amazed how beautifully you render living animals with only a pencil. Them seem to breath on your drawings… great art.
    This one portrait of cheetah is superb but I have to ask if you correlated it with you mental view of a cheetah or with a photo?
    Because now the cat looks like… ummm.. I would say – like a cheetah all over except its eyes and forehead, which look like those of a snow leopard.

      Thank you so much. I pay a lot of attention to the eyes and make sure that they feel alive. If i don’t get the eyes correct then i don’t continue with the rest of the drawing until i can feel the eyes looking back at me. I used several reference photos for that one. Its made up of different parts from different cheetahs. I use multiple reference images to get as much detail as possible.
