Greetings, my fine feathered friend!
Here is a progress update on the snow leopard. She finally has her spots! :) I really like this effect of having the eyes in color and the rest of the drawing done in sepia tone. The eyes really capture your attention. I may just have to do a version like this instead of the graphite one I was planning.
The reference photo I'm using has a golden cast to it, so this lady's fur will be more tans and browns than grays and white. Blogging about it won't get it done, so I had best be off to the drawing board! :)
