Panther

I found a pretty cool image of a Florida panther and decided to use it. I happened to kind of like the fact there were no teeth showing and that the intensity of the eyes are what really makes the image interesting. And I figured it would be a greater challenge to try and portray an intimidating animal that isnt snarling or roaring.

Final Iteration

While I am pretty pleased with the final result I definitely spent much too much time on it. Establishing forms during the beginning stages was an uphill battle and I found I had to force myself to make many of the decisions I did whether omitting elements, adding them or just playing with shapes.
