Well done, one can almost feel the thrust of those powerful legs in the water .
Best wishes for 2012.

Many thanks Katie:)

Thanks Geoff:),I tried to reproduce the impetus of the leap, and there are some successful. Best wishes to you too!

Thank you gxhpainter:),I'm doing a second version of the Puma, using dense fur brush , but I saved apart the level of splashing water to use it again.:rolleyes:

A chaotic, splashy scene that seems nicely designed. Beautiful and sylvan. :)

Overall I like the second one the most, yet the attitude and expression of the cat's face in the first, is very interesting... Also like the energy happening in the water..... :) :) :)

This painting gets better and better. :) The splashy effect of the jump is already very well and convincing shown. Right decision to simplify the background. It looks now more like painting and less like a photo. It's because the puma is the main sitter here. Anything else when increased, will cause decreasing of the overall harmony, which is already pretty good. The only thing, you can safely improve if you want, is the cat itself. However it's as I said pretty good, it seems still a bit dry.
...Well, I guess it's easier to say than to do. Well done, as is. :cool:

A great image. And the effect you managed with the water looks wonderful. I'll have to steal that one from you next time I pant water....lol

@Thank you Susha :)
@Many thanks iceaxe:). Agree with you about the cat, the second is more static, the expression is less aggressive and is a contradiction with the energy of the jump. I have to work on it a little longer..:rolleyes:

@Many thanks Strandy for your comment and adivice. They are very important!:):)
The cat is to improve , it seems a little foreign to the scene: static(like says iceaxe)and dry.
Is certainly easier to say than to do
.... but I'll try;)

@Thank you Evil Robot and steals along with all the water you want...is free;):D

Accidenti che fenomenale impressione di un balzo che sta scattando subitaneo e potente! Hai colto il movimento in un modo che il felino sembra stia sempre balzando, la visione mai statica, come un brevissimo videoclip. L'intuizione artistica e la sua trasposizione sono davvero eccezionali! Bravissima!

01-12-2012, 09:27 AM
Beautiful movement very nicely done:):)
