Snow Leopards by Wildlife Artist Karie-Ann Cooper

I've managed to finish the snow leopards' bodies, I'm sure there will be some tweaking, reworking and changing at some point, now it's just the background!!! I've already drawn it out, not sure if you can see it here but it will appear before long.
As for Willow, she worked her first full day at the Forestry Commission, here she is taking instructions from Cass on how to save energy, luckily we were working in a very good area, no brambles underfoot and it was dry but very cold so Willow wore her coat for most of the day as did Cass, here they are taking a quick nap between rows, look at the ground, this how it should be everywhere, unfortunately this is uncommon and most of the time we fight through brambles and fern up to head height!

Hola, Karie. Sheila just sent me by to check out the wildlife photo submission contest. I admire your snow leopard work. I am a wildlife artist in Costa Rica and have access to a wealth of wildlife photos from my own camera and elsewhere. I will submit a few to you shortly. I just posted three of my pieces, and invite you to drop by my site and leave me a comment or two....James
