A black leopard hunts in the moonlit rainforest of southern Asia. Black, or melanistic, leopards are a color variation of “regular” leopards. They are not completely black, and you can usually see their spots.
Drawn in white charcoal on black paper, 2008.

Masterful technique, good work
Very intense. I can tell that this leopard most likely has it’s sight set on dinner.
Bagheera! Wouldn’t be out of place in my 100 year old copy of The Jungle Book. Exquisite!
