How To Draw Big Cats Part 2 by TamberElla How To Draw Big Cats Part 2 by TamberElla
And here's part two! C:
Sorry, it's kind of gigantic! XD
I will do a part three as well, it will include Lynx, Cougar, Clouded Leopard, and Ocelot.

Lots of people asked how I paint the colored ones, so I included that too! :D

Because a few people asked, I'll say: these are definitely not traced! XD I use multiple references for everything to make sure I was getting it all right, but there's no tracing involved! ^^'

I never imagined that these would be so popular! I'm really glad people are finding them useful 8'D


Part One:

This is Incredible. Your tutorials have been very helpful to me. I've never mastered face-anatomy, especially the Cheetah, but I feel like I'm getting much better. Thank you! :D

I feel you 
My advice is to go to a cheetah farm in south africa for five days and live in the enclosure with the king cheetahs
(Which I have totally not done. Nope.)

In case you do, my advice is to eat your lunch outside the enclosure.

Wel, I don't think It'd change much. I'm the lunch for them anyway :XD:

I made the mistake of eating lunch inside the enclosure and, stupid me, I didn't eat a veggie one.
I made the stupid choice of a grilled chicken sandwich c: went hungry that day

The King cheetah's pattern actually comes from over breeding, they said that old african hunters would breed tame cheetahs to hunt with, this over breeding caused he gene that causes patterns to mutate and cause the stripe like spots. Animal planet can teach you some interesting things! :D

I love all these tutorials you do <3 I would favorite them all, but then I'd feel like a bother.

When will you do the third part?

Brightfern Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
It probably takes them a couple weeks to actually do this. The coloring is so detailed as well as the lines, so it probably takes a long time.
