Touched by frost by Lilia-DeRosso Touched by frost by Lilia-DeRosso
EDIT: I realized I uploaded the unfinished version, without whiskers. So, here is the correct one :3

A present for  one of my friends. Snow leopards are wonderful animals, solemn, wise, and mysterious. Hopefully I managed to portray this one as such.


Photograph taken by :iconrobbobert:

Charcoal, colored pencil and titanium white watercolor on drawing paper.

Approximately 20 hours of work.

Comments and critiques are always appreciated!

Lovely kitty! Really well done on the fur and eyes. I love the blue eyes, they are like blue magnets for the viewer's gaze.

I love the fact that this is in black/white/grey tones except for the bright blue eyes - it immediately draws the focus to the wonderfully done eyes. (Not that the rest of this piece isn't equally as good!) :D

Thank you for your comment! I'm glad to hear you like the way I did the eyes, and that I succeeded in making them attract attention in that way! :-)

Coming from the one who took the photograph, I receive your praise with gratitude :3 My friend loved it - she said the leopard looks more like a human than an animal. Thank you again for your comment.
Would you mind if I drew more of your photographs? I will always give credit, of course.
