    Leopard concept

    I sketched this tonight after trying to think of another project. Im having a difficult time however getting the picture in my head down on the canvas. My idea for this is to be more fantasy than reality, but my brain doesn't seem to want to let loose of reality. Any ideas or tips to make this more interesting or more than just a painting of a leopard? let me know what you think and I'll put the rubber to the road.

    Thanks

    Add a castle into the skyline, three moons, armor on the cat. you could add a stone wall.

    Should you want to go more realistic (or not :-) you could add some kind of small quarry hiding in the grass nearby... perhaps not immediately visible, but something you discover as your mind asks the "Is this just a picture of a leopard?" question...

    Wonderful sketch, though.
