Amur Leopard: Save Me by cloudstar-wolf Amur Leopard: Save Me by cloudstar-wolf
This here is the Amur Leopard- one extremely endangered kitty. 30-35 left in the wild. Still being poached for it's fur. Raise a little awareness and show a little love.

I know the title is cliche... and that "Save Me" by Jem has NOTHING to do with leopards or subject matter of saving them. But it was playing while I worked on this.

This guy/girl is going to MFF with me in the art show. Double matted and framed.

2x7 Watercolors and colored pencils, acrylic for whiskers and highlights.

SOLD

We thank you! This piece really struck me when I was browsing around DA for pieces to showcase in the journal, and your piece really stood out. I love how you captured the expression of the Leopard. ;_; And the color choices are outstanding. Very powerful piece!

Absolutely gorgeous eyes against that golden fur :heart:
It makes me so sad to think of these beautiful creatures disappearing forever. Why anyone would even want something made from the fur of one of the rarest animals I will never know. How could you live with yourself knowing you brought about the destruction of a creature so striking that you NEEDED their pelt on your floor?

ugh, ranty rant over! Wonderful job on this - the fur detailing is just lovely and the expression... well, those eyes just seem to stare out at you, not even accusingly, just gentle :heart:
