.:Panthera:. by auxeru .:Panthera:. by auxeru
Back in January a family friend told me to draw him something but I thought I’d go for my second relief this time. He had mentioned having a pic of a Snow Leopard, so I decided to try the one commonly found in Africa climbing up a tree.

The process was smooth for the most part, but then came the spots.:iconcannotevenplz: These cats have hundreds of spots, which makes them a nightmare to paint because I’m still no Bob Ross when it comes down to using a brush. :grump: The tree trunk itself is 3 layers deep while the leopard alone is 5. Some perspective shots are below.

:bulletred: Black Foamcore board, 8 layers
:bulletorange: Rubber Cement
:bulletyellow: Gesso
:bulletgreen: Acrylics
:bulletblue: Watercolors
:bulletpurple: Gloss & Matte Varnish
:bulletpink: 7½in x 18in x 1¼in
:cd: Two Horizens - Maya Brennon

Thanks! I see what you mean. I should have put some kind of impression in the tree and added claws but the thought never crossed my mind. :lol: If I do a tiger I'll remember to add that. :nod:
