Elusive Spirit ....a bit more progress

As can be seen, I've made further progress on my leopard drawing.....coming along quite nicely I think. I can see from my scan I will have to make some adjustments to the light/shadows. I always like a bit of extra contrast but find it difficult drawing fur when it's very pale so he's not as light as the reference suggests . Therefore I'll be darkening shadows to compensate towards the end.

It never ceases to amaze me how you can make the fur so dense and realistic, Peter. I love the roundness of his paws and the way he is set ready to .... spring!
