snow leopard progress - nose / fur detailing


Hello Everyone! I haven't had much time to spend on this one of late, but I thought I'd show you my slow progress. As you can see I've added fur detail to the upper face and nose - these areas still need work. I have painted a snow leopard before but it was much paler in comparison to this one's steel grey / blue and dark buttermilk colouring. She has a lot of character in her face and I intend to share every detail of her story with you.

Beautiful! Love the eyes. They are telling a story - can't wait to see this finished! (and to hear the whole story). Very captivating!
