*|.Cheetah Stamp.|* by AzureGriffin
My first cheetah ever ! Frankly I am really happy about this pic, I had a lot of fun drawing it ! I think it's also because this is my favourite "big cat" (with the cougar). First I wanted to draw a cartoon version... but I really wanted to know if I was capable to correctly draw a realistic cheetah.
You can also find this pic on FurAffinity www.furaffinity.net/view/93897… , SoFurry www.sofurry.com/view/470626 and tumblr berrizcombo.tumblr.com/post/37… .

Thanks to all the people who participate to this day, I've see such beautiful pics already... let deviantART be full of cheetah today :heart: ! Running Cheetah Icon by TheHuntingWolf

Ce dessin est purement beau, on voit limite le guépard courir, les couleurs sont bien mises, les profondeur est parfaitement respecté, les proportions sont nickels.....
J'ai beau essayer, je ne trouve absolument aucun défaut à ce dessin! O_O"

First, I'm a girl, and secondly this is not a leopard, this is a cheetah ^^. But I don't understand what you mean by "path" in that drawing :x.

FIVE HOURS?!? :steaming: :pissedoff: :frustrated: :bonk: :chainsaw: :angered:

I'm going to kill you, Bee. You have NO RIGHT to say you admire my artwork after this. :cries:

This is the kind of artwork you see on lush safari calenders. It's a stupendously realistic and cuddly painting of a cheetah, and I love the bright savannah glare. One of these days, you're going to have to sit down and teach me how you create such lush fur so quickly. I thought about painting a cheetah for the occasion, but I'm not sure I could do it justice compared to yours. Does a drawing of Cheetara count? :blushes:

Bluffant!!! Véritablement! La texture du poil est réaliste, les herbes hautes sont détaillées et précises. Les nuages également. Et surtout le cadrage est bien choisi avec cet effet de fisheye et cette vue en contre-plongée qui rend le guépard encore plus impressionnant! Une belle réussite, bravo :clap:!
