Today is the International Cheetah Day Challenge!!
The cheetah is an extraordinary gift of nature: the most graceful, the fastest, the electrifying! With a speed of up to 60 miles per hour, it is the fastest land animal and is a master of stealth and swift movement. It also has keen eyesight and can easily spot prey across the African safara.
Most comfortable in the grasslands of eastern and southwestern Africa, the cheetah has been adversely affected by settlers and the human presence. We've wrecked the cheetah's environment and continue to antagonize the cheetah, so now it's our duty to reverse the cheetah's endangered status and revitalize the cheetah population.

Note: I didn't have a reference when I was painting this, so excuse the anatomy. I tried to cover up with a mixture of other media so this is an..interesting work for me haha.
Comments and constructive criticism are appreciated! Thank you.
