I have to admit I do like big cats, they're right up there with horses for me, although they're not as pleasing form-wise to draw as horses, their markings, colours and expressions more than make up for it. I used to really love wolves as well, but I have to say I'm a little wolfed-out since being on the internet :noes:

One of the questions I get asked most (obviously aside from can I use your art in my website/blog :P ) is what program/brushes do I use. The two programs I use are Adobe 6 and Corel Painter IX, it depends on the drawing how much of either gets used. In this one I used mostly photoshop, but on most of my drawings I use corel mainly.

Corel is what gives it the sort of painterly look, its very good for imitating traditional mediums. Not so good for editing, filters and specialized brushes though, so thats where photoshop comes in. Brushes wise I'm still experimenting with photoshop, but in Corel I use mostly the oil pastel and sometimes the oil brushes.

If you have a question please don't hesitate to ask, I'm happy to answer. :)
