Clouded Leopard by Ileina Clouded Leopard by Ileina
Hi there! :wave:

This beauty is called clouded leopard.

The clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa) is a felid found from the Himalayan foothills through mainland Southeast Asia into China, and has been classified as vulnerable in 2008 by IUCN. Its total population size is suspected to be fewer than 10,000 mature individuals, with a decreasing population trend, and no single population numbering more than 1,000 adults.

Done on Royal & Langnickel - Engraving Art - gold, size 35,0 x 27,5 cm and it took me about 4 hours.

The wonderful refernce photo is from :iconquaddles:

This is just amazing! I wonder how you were able to place every single bristle at the exact spot and in the exact form and length  like in the picture?! I'm mesmerized...

Fantastic piece, good depth and contrast. It is easy to end up with a flat look with scratchboard, none of that here!
