"Baby Blue Eyes"

This is a very young leopard cub peeping from behind a tree trunk.

The blueness of its eyes is due to the small deposit of melanin in the irises,

which are the muscular rings around the pupils, making them appear blue. 

This small image will be sketched using PASTELS on a Pastel Matt board

I'm adding the darker highlights of the fur before moving onto its shou;lder and then tree branch

   

 I've now added the cubs shoulder, elbow and branch and then moved to start work on the paw

  

I've gradually been working on the cheek, nose, mouth and chin with the lower paw now appearing.

 

Adding the highlights to the cub's chin before moving onto the lower paw and then branch

So that's the bow done, just need to get it off to Framers Gallery to be scanned and framed.

  I'm gradually filling in the spots and the fur shade down the back of the second cheetah to the tip of it's tail.

Taking a rest from filling in the hundreds of spots, not once but 3 to 4 times.

  

Spots now put on the third cheetah lying down. I'll soon begin to sketch in the termite hill they're using

   

I'm starting to fill in the termite hill today and then move onto the closer the background

 

 Adding the red ochre of the old warn termite mound.

The second and third zebra are beginning to take form with the fatness of the rear zebra

The cubs ear is now to be blurred slightly to make it more three diamentional

 

At my easle

 

    

I'm  working down the cubs right side of its face, making it blurred whilst ensuring the nose and snout remain in focus.

 

  

Now moving across to the cubs left cheek and introducing a stretched out leg along the branch of a tree..

 

 

 Adding the shadow  of the tree bow to the side of the face and over thenose to give it depth.

 

Working on the paw as it stretches it forward

 

   

The paw now starting to appear

 

    

 Now moving onto the base colour of the tree bow and branch

Both ears and eyes have been sketched in and now filling in the spots of the leopard.

     

The distinctive markings have now been put on her and she is looking more like a leaopard

      

I've been working along her cheek and down her snout onto the nostrils,

 Starting the sketch off with a pencil, a BLANK sheet of pastel paper and my trusty magnifying light.

  

The gradual application of various shades of green pan pastel is used to create the dappling effect of the  background

 

With the help of Kate's colour swatch (left side) I've started to carefully work on the beautiful eyes of "Sephiri"

    

The ear is starting to take shape. I will then move across the face filling in the spots first and then work in the fur.

 

I'm now gradually filling in the very distinctive markings that every leopard has. Using my cross stick to rest my wrist.

   

Working from the ear down his cheek and then across his snout onto his chin and whiskers.

   

 Minor whiskers put in as I work on the cheek and muzzle.

  

Working on the right side of the leopards face then i will then do the nose.

  

Gradually working across the forehead and around the left eye..

  

The leopard is 90% complete. Just the tree to do now.

 

Sketching the finer details by the mouth. Where ever you stand in the room, those eyes will be looking at you

  

 The top branch is now complete, now I'm working on the gnarly wood on the tree..

 

Looking at the image from a lower perspective and he's still looking at you.
