King Cheetah by kalambo King Cheetah by kalambo
My animal practice of the day: a king cheetah.
They have very pretty coats :3 It was inspired by a video i saw recently of one running, cheetahs are pretty incredible.
My aim was to capture the energy of the animal.

The Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) agreement is being discussed right now in Thailand. The future of some of the world's most amazing creatures will be decided over the next two weeks.

King Cheetahs are really lovely, that difference in the coat is so interesting.  I like how you got the coat and the sense of speed and energy in this feline. Unfortunately they are only a very minor genetic variation of the "regular" cheetah. They are still highly endangered! (I'm a big supporter of organizations that are working to save the cheetah, the snow leopard and other endangered felines.)

I love king chetahs!!!!!  They are so under-drawn and unkown.  It's wonderful to see that you've done so, and you are such a great artist!
