Are you watching over me? - WIP by shonechacko Are you watching over me? - WIP by shonechacko
WIP of a Jaguar. Size is 6x6 and I have used fiberglass brush and a hobby knife so far on it. Added a slight touch of color in the eyes, but I might not color the rest. About 80% done.

Reference photo is this great shot by Denise Soden

Here is the finished one

This is gorgeous, Shone!! I'm trying to get inspired to do some more art. I'm in a "creative funk" lately and I just can't seem to get motivated. This might be the inspiration I need!!

I hope you are out of your 'creative funk' by now. Whenever I feel like that I go hunting for new reference pictures and soon I will run into a picture that I would want to draw immediately. I also stop what I am working on a board if I feel like it is dragging me down and start a new one.

That's incredible. The patience it must take for detail like that.

Thank you so much! It actually did not take much time. About 10 hours so far I believe. It is a very small board.

Insane! Love the details in the fur. The composition, with the black background, is very eye-popping. In a good way! :D

I absolutely adore black and white works with a little pop of colour, like in the eyes, so this is perfection for me! :XD: Your art never fails to blow my mind :worship:

Personally I think it should be left as is, but of course your art is your decision :)
