I was inspired by the intense eyes of the cheetah, and took it to another level. This started off as a speed painting, but then I decided to finish it since I liked the concept enough. It was really fun exploring this surreal lighting and this intense color palette.

Special thanks to the awesome that is Balaa for her valuable advice!

I seem to be on a cheetah kick lately. Tons of ideas for paintings featuring CHEETAHS :)

Tools used: Painted in photoshop cs5, with a wacom intuos 4.

Time: 10-15 hrs

Prints: Yup. Send me your request to artofsekhmet(AT)Gmail.com

    That's a powerful stare indeed, and I love the eye color and the markings on their face! :D <3

    Oh, that came out nice. Colors maybe a tad "cold" but the value range is pure National Geographic.

    The painting has a nice spooky, dark vibe to it, and I like how you used the moon to frame the cheetah's face.

    Truly incredible work.
