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)

Your skill with furry animals always blows my mind. This is so wonderful. I could just sit and stare at it for hours. The paws, the lighting, the little bits of green on the tree. So perfect.

The depth brings this to life very nicely. Do you use multiply layers? Or is the branch in the foreground on a layer above the base of the tree?
I have always strived for the ability to push and pull forms in space. Would it be okay if I asked you to look at a piece of my work and critique where I fall short of achieving depth?

LhuneArt Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you for the comment! I use multiple layers, yes. One for each major overlapping element, such as the foreground branch, the leopard, the middle part of the branch, the tree trunk, the background trees and the base for the background.

I can have a quick look.
