Realistic Leopard by NinjasHeart Realistic Leopard by NinjasHeart
Well, my first real attempt at realism. I think I did a pretty darn good job!! :D

PLEASE do full view and even download, I worked SO hard on the details I really want everyone to see!

This was a birthday present for my brother (whom I showed today and he LOVED it :3). I didnt remember about his birthday today until two days ago. I needed to finish the painting that day so I could get it printed at a specialty store the next day. Soo.... I was doing a jm from 9pm Thursday night to 12 pm on Friday. Nonstop. WITH NO SLEEP. It was hell, but I had a lot of friends who stayed with me at some times, and even a few who stayed up with me all night <3

PLEASE do full view and even download, I worked SO hard on the details I really want everyone to see!

Time: about 15 hours
Program: Photoshop

I had this appraised for 120 dollars. 15 hours of work with minimum wage being around 8 dollars, that is 120 dollars.

If you are interested in purchasing something like this, please message me! 120USD :)

PLEASE do full view and even download, I worked SO hard on the details I really want everyone to see!

I believe you already know how much I love this, but I'll spam you again just so you remember. THIS. IS. AMAZING!! Watching you work on it was even more incredible. Girl, you have some serious talent and you really need to show it more! I love everything about this! The shading on the fur is to die for and I love all of the little details, especially the single strands of hair that you did around the ear and on the chest. It really adds a special touch to the whole image. <333

I am really tempted to talk with you about getting one of these done. First I might need to yell at Alex XD I do agree that it's a very fair price for the amount of work that you put into this. I'm just a wee bit short of that right now :P

You're so sweet!!! :3 And so kind, and awesome, and amazing, and I love you so much :333 I will try to draw more like this, I really want to! I will since I've had SO much encouragement and compliments on this. I really like the little details as well, they were hard, but its the most fun part of the picture C:

Hahahha well honestly, for a friend, Id do it for 60 haha. You're so sweet though for actually considering :heart: And yes, please do yell at Alex ;)))

The amount of detail in this piece is absolutely unbelievable! The effort you have poured into points such as the ears and whiskers is simply stunning.

You've done fantastically for your first realistic piece, and I hope to see more pieces like this!
