This Snow Leopard was a fun exercise in drawing fur and cat eyes. It was an additional joy to share my final result with the other artists who took the drawing challenge from the Colored Pencil Magazine. I was careful to create a soft texture in the wild spotted fur and keep the eyes glossy. The rough and steely colored background provided a nice contrast, to make the white fur stand out.
