Commissioned illustration for the lovely Tivadu of their leopard character. This was a joy to work on, I love painting cats and gnarly old trees.

The lighting is lovely - how it highlights the leopard's eyes. The details on the tree are superb, as are the branches in the background.

Tivvy showed me this and I was floored.

Had to find out who you were and immediately I was like Lhune? 

No wonder!

Your love for gnarly old trees and moss shows.  I wish I had more health and time to paint but viewing your work reminds me of that love and that high when a piece is done.

Inspirational and beautiful.  Suprised you haven't been Daily Deviated yet.

Thank you so much <3. Sorry to hear you're not able to paint as much as you wished you could, I hope that will change for you soon!

I love, love, love this picture! The gold of the leopard really stands out against the dark background and seems to glow from the light shining on it. You really did an outstanding job here.

This reminds me so much of the scene in the jungle book where the snake comes into play... except replaced with a leopard xD

Meow! Meow :3 I like the way this leopard is depicted naturally, yet the scene doesn't provoke any sense of threat. 
Instead it looks like the curious spotted kitty wants to cheerfully play with the viewer. :D (Big Grin)
