This is Going to Take Awhile....

Re-drew the eyes. I did make them bigger than they normally would be because I really want them to stand out.
Put in a nose, should actually be a little higher up, but with the bigger eyes it looked odd.
And slowly starting adding spots and re-drawing the muzzle.
Where it is at the moment. A lot of the right side is dark near the muzzle, so I will have to find a few other photos of Leopards from this angle to see how things look with more light.

I just Googled 'Leopard Face' images and most have distances between the eyes and nose similar to your drawing so it doesn't look as though the nose should have been higher up? But depends on perspective I guess - will look different depending on if viewed face on or from slightly above.

Is this graphite/charcoal or coloured pencil?

its almost straight on, looks like the photo was taken a little bit above the cat. hmm maybe i am just being picky lol

going to do this in coloured pencil, even tho i did think of using pastels at one time
