Cheetah Love-Valentines Day 11 by unistar2000 Cheetah Love-Valentines Day 11 by unistar2000
It's that time of year again! Happy Valentines day, everyone~! :heart:

Trying a slightly different style this time around; it's more simple, but I feel like I've improved in my painting technique from the previous years.

As you can see I spent a lot less effort on the background, but more on the cats - boy did those spots take a while. ;)

Used these two lovely refs for the poses: [link] by *fpanther

Enjoy, and have a happy love holiday! <3

Really pretty pic, but unlike us, animals don't need a special day for love because they're aware of one simple fact - that everyday is special ;)

Oh wow, yes, I remember those two last pictures you did, I've loved them ^_^
There's always this true emotion in your valentine's drawings, hard to miss. The cheetahs look very soft, and I live the technique!

This is beautiful! The color choices are masterfully done, I adore the way you did the clouds, and the cheetah's faces are so cute and soft! Your painting and shading is also amazing on the cats! <33

Thank you! (: I made it a point to choose different color tones for each of the cheetahs, I'm not sure if it shows on most screens though. ^^;
hehee the photo ref for the faces was amazing. <3 Thanks! :hug:

It does very slightly. c: It comes off looking just like shading though. xD But it looks great!
