Your wood has nice textures and variations. The leopard still seems a little flat compared to it. I would recommend pulling out more lights and darks in the leopard. Once you decide where your light is coming from, darken the areas out of the light. Also maybe vary the colors in the leopard a little more.

Aw, that is really sweet of you to say so. :) However I consider your photograph to be better, as you were the one who took it and created the composition; and more to the point you were there to see the wild leopard living and breathing!!

I'm totally impressed by the way you did the fur and the wood texture! They're amazing!

Thankyou for the compliment. :) For some reason I found this painting really hard, I could not get a flow going (until the end) and I had to force myself to work on it. I find this personally odd, as I am more practiced in this subject matter than others; for instance the owl that I did.
