    Puma, Mountain Lion, Cougar, Panther

    Take your pick, this smallest of the large cats is known by many names. I used a mixture of tools, airbrush, custom brush, inkpen, palette knife, blend mode and noise filtre.

    I thought I had already posted this but I can't see it anywhere

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    The volume of the head, the fur, eyes and expression are great. The lack of articulation in the teeth goes contrary to the amount of fastidiousness you put everywhere else so it pounces on me like I was in its cross hairs. But overall this is a masterpiece.

    I'm seeing you moving into a category where you could start getting known. Just bear in mind, the devil's in the details.

    Yes, you sure are that close. I'm biting my nails.

    Go JUNE!!!!!

    Nice. The teeth is a judgment call on the part of the artist (yourself in this case). It reflects how you want to characterize the puma. So if you had really made a focus on the teeth it could be seen as menacing. As it is subtle, it draws the attention to the more pet-able charm. Paint it one way it says one thing. Paint it another the painting says something different.

    Looks really nice, June.
