Snow leopard by Bisanti Snow leopard by Bisanti
UPDATE MARCH 1rst 2013 - New head as I thought the previous one looked like a cheetah

Initially it started as a pastel work, but the fur was too blue and I could not add more layers on the velours paper. I took a picture of it and rework everything on Painter 11. Fur was done mainly with the wet water acrylics brusches, whilst the dots were done with the variable oil brush.

Idea + color scheme + reference mainly came from this stock this picture was taken by Parides [link]


It is a tribute to Eric Wilson big cats portrait, notably these two wonderfuls paintings [link] and [link]

Wow, er sieht wunderschön aus! Und all diese Details...Ich wünschte, ich könnte nur halb so gut zeichnen, es sieht echt wunderbar aus! ich mag das Fell, es sieht echt aus, als bräuchte man nur die Hand ausstrecken und könnte darüber streicheln (wobei ich das bei einem wilden Tier wohl eher nicht machen würde, haha).
Toll finde ich auch das Gesicht und den Blick, die Augen wirken sehr durchdringend...Echt ein wundervolles Bild!
