Fine art illustration of an Arabian Leopard (Panthera pardus nimr.)
The Arabian Leopard was completed on 10.2.2014. A few months ago I was researching how many subspecies of leopard there are – turns out about 9. I had drawn a couple and added a few more since then. This Arabian Leopard is the 6th of the 9, so I will likely draw the remaining species over the next few months. I love that the Arabian is especially a white leopard. The drawing is based upon several different reference photos and a working knowledge of the cat’s anatomy.
