Cheetah Queen by Digimaree Cheetah Queen by Digimaree
Made for :iconmanip-contest: Animal Dress Up

Although her kingdom is old, the Cheetah Queen still holds the pride of her race.

This manipulation was done with great help from my old friends the warp tool and the smudge tool.

This is my second try - I tried to make a ballet dancing giraffe first but it looked terrible. I'm happy with the way this one turned out. Thanks for looking!!!

Thanks. I wanted to try a majestic animal which is why I chose the cheetah. Fur is also tricky to manipulate so I wanted the challenge of trying that too.

Nice, nice, very nice! And congratulations on the last contest. A little bit more work on zone where the cheetah touches the ground(touching point shadow) and it'll be perfect. Besides that it's a job well done, very well done.

Thank you my friend I think you are right. I put some shadow on the back leg but perhaps not enough. Another thing I have already corrected is the tail. After I put her up I thought the tail looked too thick in comparison with the "arms" so I made the tail a bit thinner. I'll leave miss fat-tail there for now. You know I was so excited making my ballet giraffe picture but as soon as I placed the body parts in place it looked truly awful. I had this nude in my stock already and when I went through the pictures I could just see her standing on an open plain - hence the cheetah. And when she was working out OK I made her into a queen. Thanks for your critique again.

Outstanding...you my dear are outstanding!!!
I think you have really out done yourself with this one, the story, the detail, the lighting, and the openness of the piece is great. Your use of hard concrete or stone texture really pulls the piece together.

I only have one small tinny tiny critique, where the two enter connecting lines or points of the legs meet is hard to differentiate. It could be that the pattern is the same on both legs, what would or could help would be to make the leg in the back ( her left leg ) a little darker because it does cause a shadow.
I know this because I've checked and researched light and shadows before.

Well that's it, and I hope you win and I wish you the best of luck.
( As if anyone would ever want the worst of luck. ) lol

Thanks. I really love using textures, they can change a piece completely. This is the look I was going for but sometimes you get lovely surprises by going through the blending modes.
