Nairobi Border by darknatasha Nairobi Border by darknatasha
Portrait of a cheetah scout watching over the African plains for prey or possible predators. This tribe does not get along well with the hyenas or the lions and needs to keep a watchful eye for danger as they tend to be much more aggressive and powerful.
I really enjoy doing close ups and head studies and I could not resist doing one of a cheetah. Had way too much fun with the braids and accessories as usual. Cheetahs are awesome animals and I look forward to doing more, the only thing I hate doing is spots and stripes. One of the main reasons you donít see me doing a lot of cats.

theres one real thing i have noticed about your work which i really love, is your refference to braids and acessories. im guessing you did use reffernce for them.

they look wounderful.

Your fur looks so real... you could almost touch it. :O This is incredible, especially because you allowed character while portraying the cheetah realistically.

I really love the detail you've put into your artwork here; it shows much lifelike realism! The accessories I especially like because it seems to add some life to the character and keep it from looking like just another drawing of a cheetah. I like how it looks like he is staring at something off-screen, like he's just passing time. Excellent work! :+fav: >^_^<
