i don't know whether to love you for your abilities, or hate you out of jealousy... this is amazing...

Well I'd hope it's not hate xD This piece took a long time and so much mistake-fixing to get to the finished point
Thank you!

ya know, this one would be really fun to have as a puzzle. Don'tcha think?
It keeps catching my eye when I look through your gallery I really like it =]
I have a couple animals at night puzzles (tigers and wolves) =P
50-250 piece ones I can put together with my nieces.

Hmm, maybe xD I just don't know about selling the print of one on dA because I would get no profits from it at all, since not nearly enough people would buy them in order for the minimum amount of money needed for dA to send me a check. That's why I've stopped offering prints on dA. D:

Do you know another place that I could use that offers sellers to make puzzles instead of just prints?

Ahhh I fell in love with this the very day you posted it <3 That left cheetah came out great. I really like all of the cool tones you used (since I'm a sucker for blues of course |D; ) and the warm feeling you get looking at it is really nice c':

Holy crap this is gorgeous. The scenery, the colors and lighting all go well together. The poses and the gorgeous realistic execution and that starry background. You have always been amazing but I think you're getting even better.

OH MY GOD, YOU DREW CHEETAHS! MY LIFE IS NOW COMPLETE. :love: :wow:
Seriously, how do you draw so well? :omg:
Reply
:iconanimalartist16:
animalartist16 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012   General Artist
I've actually drawn them before, I just haven't really submitted any yet xD They're my mom's favorite animal, so I made a painting of them too, but it's still unfinished, so I haven't submitted it either haha.
Cheetahs are actually surprisingly hard D: It took forever to get the faces decent enough, I thought I was going to miss submitting it on Dec 4th. :'D The one on the left... the face just kept looking drunk, so it took like half a day alone of messing with it just to get it looking right lol.

Ooh, really? They're one of my absolute favourites, although I do tend to love all carnivorous animals. :love:
Haha, you think so? I always found them easy, but then my drawings of them looked like crap, so I suppose I found it easy to DRAW THEM BADLY. :rofl: (although I never tend to use refs, so maybe they're hard to reference ;))

Carnivorous animals are always amazing C: Though I love scavengers and ungulates too, and... everything OTL I just can't seem to choose one favorite animal haha. Muntjacs probably come close to my all time favs though.
I dunno, they're kinda easy for me to draw with no reference, but when you're really trying for realism with them, it gets pretty difficult. They just have such unique features hehe.

:iconvannjaren:
Vannjaren Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2012
Yes, scavengers are love. :love:
Haha, muntjacs are beyond adorable, I must agree. ;)
Ah, I guess so - their facial structure is quite different to a lot of big cats.

Yeah, more angular or something xD

And uhh... not really, I meant more the eye size and shape, and muzzle length and angle relative to the cranium ^^; I never really thought of them as being more angular (well, the body, yes, but not so much the head)
Reply
:iconanimalartist16:
animalartist16 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2012   General Artist
Oh, well it seems a bit more angular to me, like the top of the head and the muzzle. At least it felt that way when drawing it xD
