Leopard cub in coloured pencils progressing

I am still working on this a bit at a time each day gradually shading, layering, texturing and drawing the fur. I have also been attempting to alter the cubs mouth which is incorrect in my drawing.

I have made some more progress on this drawing although it’s far from complete. I have been altering the mouth and doing more shading and detailing on the fur and a little bit on the back. I am mainly using Faber-Castell coloured pencils at the moment although I am using a few others like my old Berol verithin coloured pencils and some Derwent Academy ones #leopardcubportrait #leopardcubdrawing #leopardcubart #colouredpencilsleopardcub #leopard-drawings #leoparddrawing #leopardportrait #leopardart #leopardartwork #leopardartworkinprogress #pencildrawinginprocreate #pencildrawinginpaper #leopardpencildrawing #colouredpencilleopard #leopardcolouredpencil #leopardcubcolouredpencil #colouredpencildrawing #coloiredpencilart #colouredpencilportrait #pencildrawing https://www.instagram.com/p/Cef_obVIHc1/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY=

Leopard cub in coloured pencils progress

Leopard cub in coloured pencils. Although far from perfect work on this cub is still progressing a bit at a time. I will have to wait until I have the light tomorrow to do more colouring of the cubs fur and the background. Coloured pencils look different under artificial light to how they look in natural light. I began this project sometime last year and thought I would never finish it but I have been working on it a bit at a time #leopardcubportrait #leopardcub #leopardcubs🐆 #leopardcubdrawing #colouredpencilleopard #colouredpencilleopardcub #leopardportrait #leoparddrawing #leopardpencildrawing #leopardcubpencildrawing #colouredpencils #colouredpencildrawing #colouredpencildrawing🎨✏️ #colouredpencilart #pencildrawing #pencildrawingart https://www.instagram.com/p/CecFY7DoLBh/?igshid

Leopard cub in coloured pencils progress

I am still working on this drawing a bit at a time. The muzzle is wrong but I am colouring and detailing the fur on the cubs coat now and shading in some of the background.

I have continued shading and detailing the cubs head mainly with different shades of yellow and orange coloured pencils. I have also used some grey, cream and white pencils on the lighter aeras of the face.

Current stage of my drawing after more shading, colouring and detailing on the face and head. I have mainly used yellow and orange coloured pencils for this but I have used some creams, greys and black to. I have also used a little bit of mustard coloured pencils. I need to blend and shade the orange and yellow pencils now so they are a closer colour to the cubs fur  The current stage of my drawing with printouts from Jesima’s tutorial above it #leopardpencildrawing #leoparddrawing #colouredpencils #colouredpencildrawing #colouredpencilart #leopardcolouredpencil #leopardportrait #leopardcubdrawing #leopardcubart #pencildrawing #pencildrawings https://www.instagram.com/p/CeTTiWPI1fb/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY https://www.instagram.com/p/CeTrNqbo4Un/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY=

This project is currently on my easel in my sketchbook.

The current stage of my drawing with printouts from Jesima’s tutorial above it

I have gotten printouts of the source image I am trying to draw following Jesima’s tutorial on lesseng.jesima.com This one is called drawing a leopard cub in coloured pencils on her site which has many tutorials. With the printouts of images from the tutorial it is much easier to assess and see my mistakes and progress and it’s easier to judge where to shade, layer, colour and add details. At the moment I am in the colouring and shading stage and I’m adding to the drawing a little bit at a time each day. Yesterday I used some orange and brown pencils in different shades of each colour to add more layering, shape, colour and texture to the fur. You need to gradually layer and shade fur then add it’s final colours and texture over that #leopardpencildrawing #leoparddrawing #colouredpencils #colouredpencildrawing #colouredpencilart #leopardcolouredpencil #leopardportrait #leopardcubdrawing #leopardcubart #pencildrawing #pencildrawings✏️ https://www.instagram.com/p/CeTTiWPI1fb/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY=

Progressing leopard cub in coloured pencils

I have included some images from the tutorial I am following to draw this. Today I have worked with two shades of pale yellow, some yellow ochre, mustard, golden brown a bit of orange and some brown pencils to continue drawing in the shape of the cubs skull underneath the fur and to draw the hairs of the fur and the layers and colours of the fur. I have also used a little bit of black for some of the spots on the coat of the cub. Yesterday I used some grey and white for layering and colouring the underlayers of the fur. I used used a small bit of pink, peach, blue and lilac pencils in the white and light areas of fur. I used these very lightly and sparingly but these colours can all be found in white fur.

Some more progress made. Drawing fur with coloured pencils is a long process. I am drawing in the layers of the leopards coat that make up the fur and colouring it now. Like human hair animals fur changes in the light and shows many different colours even in a single hair. That’s what I’m drawing now.

Leopard cub in coloured pencils progress

Some progress made. Leopard cub in coloured pencils. The weather is awful today. It is throwing it down with rain here so I may just stay in and study drawing leopards fur and spots and work on completing the drawing. The light is awful though as the skies are completely grey, cloudy and overcast so the natural light isn’t good and is not good for drawing in coloured pencils
