Snow Leopard Illustration

Watching youRoger Hall contacted me a couple of weeks ago asking if he could draw from my photo of a snow leopard. Here is the final result alongside the original photograph.

Roger is a scientific illustrator and I think he’s made a good job of matching the photo and capturing the personality of this cat.

I can’t think it is easy to make illustrations of animals with fur as it must be difficult to get a sense of the fur.  I saw some more stunning animal artworks recently at the Marwell International Wildlife Art Society exhibition at Marwell Zoo.  My favourite was one by Natalie Mascall of a cats face.  Both my mum and my grandma have painted some lovely pictures, but I don’t have their talents… think I’ll stick to photography!
