Drawing an animal of this coloration is one of the hardest things to master. You have done an awesome job.

Thank you. I did it on A4 paper with a 3cm border so it's probably the largest drawing I've done so far.

I just love it when they are black. They can look so mystical, still dangerous with those golden glaring eyes. Wonderful capture of this animal! Realy like how you've done the hairs that are highlighted.

Thank you. It was quite difficult to get the highlights right, I'm glad you like it.

Highlights in the furr of an animal, if it is a horse, sheep, dog, leopard or whatever it is hard to capture. Even the hairs that are highlighted of people are sometimes hard to capture and achieve the same effect. I'm glad you are sharing your work with us to see. Hope to see your next drawing soon ;).

Hopefully I'll have finished my next drawing later this week, although it's not as involved as this one was.

We will see, don't rush it too much ;). Anyway my drawing will hopefully be finished in two weeks, so by the end of 2011 and maybe I can do something different after one year and a half doing the same drawing.

I've been looking forward to seeing you finish that drawing of Valentino Rossi - it is among the best motorsport drawings on DA.
