Run with me, Cheetah by Bearwood Run with me, Cheetah by Bearwood
I feel as though this was slighly rushed towards the end, and I am kinda unsatisfied with how the cheetah came out. I loved the sketch and lineart but when I began colouring it I was like...bleh XD But I put that aside and said what the hell, I'll just play around abit. The colouring shading is simple, but this is one of many styles I'm going to be doing. I still have plently of time to teach myself how to colour, and hopefully improve next time.

The thing I like most about this though is the background...its the first ever landscape background I've completed...and I did it all without a tutorial or direct reference, although I did flick through some photo's of the sky just to get an idea of what it should look like.

So overall I'm pleased I actually got something done to show you guys! I hope you like it.
