Cheetah's Anger by CatBeast17 Cheetah's Anger by CatBeast17
Watercolor Cheetah ;)
First time attempting a full watercolored painting (okay, I'll admit to using SOME acrylic paint...but only for the wet highlights around the nose, mouth, and eyes :) ) and first attempt at drawing a Cheetah! :dance:


:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:










And to this day, backgrounds still remain my Arch-Nemesis :iconnotimpressedplz: (And they most likely will always remain so :P )


Colored with coffee and watercolor paints.

Time: About 3 hours.

Nice, what do you mean, is it real coffee?

Yes, it is :) I mixed coffee with watercolor, and I got this. It was a very interesting technique that I will have to try again someday :D And thank you much! :meow:

Oh, it DOES! :D :meow: That's one of the reasons I like to paint with it...I don't like the taste of coffee, but I looooove the smell! :love:

I'm in love with your work! Do you do commissions? I have this system that when one of my cat passes on I get a portrait of them done, I'd love to get you to do a portrait!

Aww, Thank you!! :heart: It makes me feel good knowing that others appreciate my work :)
And yes, I do indeed! :) Now, when you say that, do you mean just over the internet, or you show me the picture and I mail the finished results to you?

First off, very nice! Especially being your first cheetah :aww: I'm curious, did you use gouache or acrylic to paint the whiskers and is the black ink? I always love to hear how others do it when it comes out nicely :3

Okay, so you're like, one of my favorite artists here on DA. And I'm really excited that you took the time to comment on one of my pieces of artwork :iconexcitedplz:

Anyways, I used acrylic paint for only the highlights of the eyes and the nose. Everything else was a watercolor and coffee mixture :) I WISH I had black ink though...I've seen what people can do with that stuff, and I can't wait to try it out!
Same here. I always like to ask and see how so-and-so created this-and-that, because it's very interesting to see the coloring/drawing style of another artist :)

Just on Sunday our new male cheetah at work (who is pretty wild) walked towards the fence where I was and hissed at me. He is a beautiful cat with an intense look, as well as an intense personality as I've found out...and I'm glad that there was the fence between us. :D
I thought of your watercolor here when he hissed at me. I'm planning to make my own drawing of him soon :aww:

Ay, but first, I'd need to know his personality...and how he would react to my characters. One in particular though....

Or, I could draw you and Myst togather, if you'd like that better. I'm open to ideas! :)

If I had a choice, I'd rather be kind, considerate, and encouraging with bad art skills, than to be extremely talented and a complete jerk :P :)

And thank you! Yes, I am :) You as well.

So I'll draw you and Myst together, you two make a lovely pair you know ;)

It looks amazing! It doesn't really have any flaws when it comes to the anatomy or the coloring of the cheetah and I love the way you painted it! It looks so professional! It seems like something you'd find on sale for thousands of dollars at some art store.

It's just awesome, I've always loved cheetahs, they're one of my favorite animals... other than the wolf. ^_^

Yes, pegasus. ;)
