Drawing - Cougar

Postby angeleyes » Tue Jan 08, 2008 9:41 pm

One of my first attempts of drawing a cougar, she is my best so far. I used an 8b and 2hb pencil to draw her and then enhanced her with digital. Thank you in advance for viewing her. Feel free to give your opinion so that I may better improve my art.

Nice job! You have captured the feline look very well, I love her face, she does look like a lady cat. The only thing is that the eyes look a little off-balance. Fill her in and get that pencil going, she's going to be a beauty!

You are definitely on the right track...
Keep it up... my only recommendation is to practice foreshortening, specifically... yours isn't bad, but it looks like that may be where you have difficulty...

Do figure studies (animal or whatever) that have poses that force you to practice this technique!

Great Job!
May your world be painted in the Brightest of colors!

What does "enhance with digital "mean?

it's a good beginning. practice. and try to get real subjects to look at so you'll understand the shadows. the right side eye is wrong and is looking at us - which would be fine if the other one was looking at us, too. you did the mouth well but there's not much strength in it. the body could stand to be shown on the left side where it's back legs should be. put more emphasis on the foreleg (right) to make the left leg move back a little. and how about some shadows under its body on the right? it's a good sketch you can use for your next one.
