Re: Closeup Baby Leopard WIP

About 15 hours into it...a bit more added...

As you can see, the texture on the nose isn't very realistic. Struggle with that a bit, but when more is done I will blend it in a bit.

Re: Closeup Baby Leopard WIP

A lovely rich piece of pencil work, Adrian. I can't see much wrong with the nose either. I'm sure it will work well when the drawing is finished! Keep it up!! :)

Re: Closeup Baby Leopard WIP

Thanks Guys,

Whats bugging me about the nose, or should I say the bridge of the nose, is that textured area...the "patterns" just seem a bit too defined ie. not blending in enough. But here is an update, and it's looking a bit better in my opinion...
I might blend the patterns in a bit more at the end.
Another thing...what do you Guys think about the biggest dark patch with the white whiskers ontop of it? Does it not make that area seem a bit like a void? Maybe add a bit of texture to that dark patch to bring it out a bit?

Re: Closeup Baby Leopard WIP

Looking good Adrian,
The pattern on the nose seem a bit thick, but having not seen the ref photo, it's difficult to judge really.
I imagine it to be like velvet, but at the moment it seems more of a fleecy texture. Does that make sense? I could be wrong...

The dark patch does seem a bit flat, I know that photos play tricks on you, so maybe some artistic license is needed there.

But that said, if you left both these things unchanged, it would still be a great drawing, so it's up to you really.

Honestly, really good work so far. :)

Re: Closeup Baby Leopard WIP

Ahh yes, it's got one of those dodgy confusing bits where the dark patch is, I would look at some other refs, and indicate the lip going round to break it up a bit.
or not, its up to you. Hope that helps. :)

Well here's an update Guys...
The dark patch under the bright white whiskers still looking a bit extreme? (contrast-wise)

Re: Closeup Baby Leopard WIP

Thankyou for the positive feedback Everyone.
I'm nearly finished it, just the chin whiskers to do, so let me know if any touches need to be made before I spray it with the fixative :wink:

Re: Closeup Baby Leopard - Finished

Well finally here's the "finished" drawing. Probably took me about 50 hours, but thats just a guess. Thanks for all the motivating and positive feedback :wink:
Haven't sprayed it with fixative yet, but have taken a few suggestions with regards to "touch-ups" into account and made a couple of changes here and there, so if there's anything obvious that stands out and needs to be changed/fixed, please let me know...

Re: Closeup Baby Leopard - finished?

This is really good! The only thing I might suggest, is making the leopard's right eye a little bit darker. There isn't much of a contrast between the eye, and the white fur. Maybe it's just your photo, or scan, but in your reference photo the eye is darker, and the reflection on the eyeball is more pronounced.
Great work, Adrian!
