After reading about the plight of Amur Leopards, I decided to do this picture of one in the middle of a jungle hunt. I tried to capture a moment, he is in the middle of moving, getting ready to pounce.
I need to practice backgrounds more. This one is kinda sucky. I didn't really want to outline the leopard but he needed it to stand out from the background. The anatomy is a bit odd, and his right hand should be bigger. Over all I'm happy with it. I love doing spots. He doesn't have whiskers yet because I am out of white ink. I need to get more, than I will add them and put it up. That could be a while though. His head turned out too big as well. And they live in the snow.. This guy got lost I guess
