“Stony Overlook” Realistic Panther Drawing:
This realistic panther drawing was created with a huge focus on the brooding sky behind pillars of cliff – the perfect backdrop for this beast, shadowing an unknown prey. The turbulent clouds are the ideal setting, contrasting the calm demeanor of the animal while camouflaging the sleek details of the large cat’s visage – the perfect hunter blending into his background.
How the Original “Stony Overlook” Nature Drawing Was Made:
The original drawing is mixed media. It was laid out in light pencil, then willow vine charcoal, then conte chalk and compressed charcoal. Charcoal pencil was then used to highlight the darker details.
