Cheetah by KomodoEmpire Cheetah by KomodoEmpire
I'm really starting to enjoy painting the big cat portraits so here's another one. This cheetah is painted the same way as the Jaguar and Snow Bengal. I was fortunate to find some awesome cheetah reference online, including a few good orthographic pictures, which helped with determining proportions.

as with most of my animal art, this was painted in Photoshop.

Really really good! I love how traditional it looks. Good job, with the different fur pattererns. I love cheetahs becasue their eyes are really soulful and I think you did a good job of capturing it. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much :) It's funny you mention "soulful." That's the title of my book featuring my big cat paintings. All of the painting are focused on the eyes :)
