I am so amazed that you draw and use such an interesting time consuming technique.
This is a side of you I did not know. The mother cheetah and her Cubs are too cute.
Incredible Details, colors and realism.
Well done Sir Adrian ;)

Comment from Envision


You are multi-talented! This is a wonderful piece that sounds like it is time consuming. The colors do have an attractive richness. I like the positions of all the cats and you did a great job with the patterns on their coats. Their faces look good too.

If I had a 6 you would own it..wink. the body form and language is excellent. The facial expressions is excellent. The depth is excellent. The Shading is excellent. The blend of the colors is excellent. The details is excellent. The creation is balanced and very eye appealing to the viewer. Creative and awesome work overall (clapping)

So beautiful!

My husband is a wildlife artist and so I can truly appreciate they work and details that went into this.

Explaining your methods really makes us understand what it takes to create such an image.

Well done!!

Simply lovely. Interesting notes on the methodology you have followed. I paint in pastels too. But have never followed the steps you have described. I shall give it a try now. The delineation is excellent. So also the likeness and the sheen on the Cheetah's coat. Thanks for sharing!

Comment from Patti C


I love this painting, the position of the Cubs around mama is perfect and so natural looking. I especially like the cub to the far left looking out around mama shyly. The mother's expression is perfect looking out intently and with a little warning in her eyes. The colors are very nice as is the composition. I like the background because it sets off the cheetah family. Very, very nice

Aha! You're an artist, too. Such a beautiful painting of this gorgeous big cat! Great job and I love the positioning of the cubs. What's you preferred medium?

    Thank you so much Hilma, I prefer soft pastels purely so I can achieve results like this and they have the look and feel of an oil painting!
Comment from David Ruhl


This is excellent work Adrian! I can tell you put a lot of time into this, with all the detail in their fur, spots, and faces. I like that each face looks different and that the cubs actually look like cubs rather than just smaller versions of the adult. Well done!

Dave
