My dad-in-law wanted a jaguar, so I painted him a jaguar:) I used to draw tigers and other big cats when I was young, so I thought this would be a cake walk. It was not...
Now that I have switched my brain to bright colors, cutesy birdies and pets, and loosen my brush control, painting realistic yet still within my style took a couple tries.
Ultimately I'm really happy with the results. My jaguar looks intent and focused on his prey. I think it best that we let him hunt, before he comes after us!
