Clouded pastels by Sarahharas07 Clouded pastels by Sarahharas07
Updated
Backgrounds seems to be my Achilles heel :D.
I've decided to change this one, as advised by :icondaisyreeb:
I believe she was right and I like it better this way.

Soft pastels on velours paper.
Seize app 40 x 30 cm, or 15,7 x 11,8 inch
Clouded leopard reference picture [link]

The Clouded leopard (neofelis nebulosa) is a felid found from the Himalayan foothills through mainland Southeast Asia into China, and has been classified as vulnerable.

Me, it's cheetahs, because of their grace! And their characters. My second favourite would be tigers. By the way, I was born the year of the Tiger...

I always work from top left to down right (I'm righthanded) and place a sheet of paper underneath my hand.

Very nice! It is hard to find people who draw as well as you and specially felines! (my favorites) :D you know, as you say that backgrounds is your 'Achilles heel', I can give you a tip: what I do, when the original picture has not a good background, I look for photographs that asimilate the animal habitat and mix it with the main picture, it's a technique I read from an Animal Drawing book, to mix different elements to from one great outstanding original one... you should try it! ;)
