I am a horrible friend. Today turned out to be a bit of a busier day than anticipated. When all was said and done I basically just gave up on finishing the picture I’m working on for my friend today. I decided to just get a daily sketch done early today instead so that I would be able to get to sleep at a reasonable time tonight and then work on the other picture later. So as a result I haven’t even touched the drawing I was supposed to be working on today yet. I’m trying not to despair of its ever getting finished.
What I did instead was turn my attention to Something to Draw as usual when I’m just trying to do a quick sketch without having to think about it. That was where I stumbled upon a photo submitted by Samuel Kassapian Jr. of a beautiful leopard lazing around in front of a beachy backdrop. I couldn’t resist that one. I love cats and he had a great expression on. I can never resist drawing an animal with an expressive face.
Actually, truth be told I’m not 100% certain that this is in fact a leopard. I assumed it was and then got myself all confused when I found out that jaguars look very similar to leopards. Apologies if I’ve misnamed the animal. It seems to be a habit of mine. The more animals I draw the more I realize how little I actually know about the differences between similar looking animals and how to tell them apart. Either way though, this big cat is very majestic, as all cats should be.
