Chinese leopard - walkthrough by Bisanti Chinese leopard - walkthrough by Bisanti
Soft pastels on pastel card 30cm x 40cm



Inspired by the great wildlife artist Jason Morgan [link] and his latest ebook "How to Paint Animals" [link]

I try to converted his oils tips to pastels, notably regarding his tutorial from pages 63 to 70.

Jason was kind enough to have a look at my modest paintings and to provide me with useful advices. His other e-books should be purchased by anybody interesting in wildlife art

References from Tambako the jaguar [link]

1. Sketching the leopardī~ 1h
2. Bocked the dark with an almost black pastel, use a reworkable fixative on it ~1h
3-4. Start the 1rst layer with pastel pencils to have a lot of mark that will give density to the fur ~3h
5-6. Rework the head with soft pastels chiselled ~2h30
7-8. Adding a background with a complementary color (dark green jungle agains yellow/orange fur) ~30min
9-11. Rework the fur to unify the colors and contrast, add the missing spots, the whiskers and final touches ~2h
12. Correct the picture colors on Painter 1 to be closer from the original pastel artwork, doing the walkthroug ~1h
