I couldn’t sleep. I then remembered that I haven’t painted a portrait yet. This time my friend’s favorite animal. The cheetah. I do like the tear drop patterns on the cheetah’s face. Cheetahs are very beautiful creatures. This painting was created from scratch in Photoshop with a Wacom tablet. I used the flat round brush and the eraser for the entire painting. I think I spent around 30 minutes .
Wikimedia again came to my rescue with a decent photo ref: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/11/Acinonyx.jubatus-1-ZOO.Olomouc.jpg
