African Cubs - Copic Marker Design by WildSpiritWolf African Cubs - Copic Marker Design by WildSpiritWolf
This is :iconsplucy: 's completed commission for a color tattoo of a leopard, lion, and cheetah cub.

:bulletred: I do apologize for the obnoxious watermarks but they have been put in place to help cut down on the prolific theft of my artwork as well as to protect the commissioned art that was designed for my clients' use. It is an intensely frustrating thing seeing a design you worked so hard to create being reposted or even sold elsewhere without your knowledge or consent and that does not even begin to cover how my clients feel about it. And that is why the watermarks exist and are going to remain. Any snarky comments regarding them will be marked as spam. :bulletred:

Please do not copy, trace, alter, or redistribute this anywhere in any way, shape, or form!

This design was created specifically for the commissioner's use only. If you would like a design custom created for you, drop me a note or see my FAQ journal entry here: [link] if you need more info.

Lineart: Micron Pen Size 03
Color: Copic Marker

I love that you can see the differences between the types of cats. Not everyone can pull off the unique features indicative of the species. It's very beautiful.

Love that you've given the cheetah the necessary more delicate features.

Hmm...what do you use to blend the copics? I am fairly new to using them, and don't know any methods to you have any advice? It would be super helpful. Thanks! :w00t!:

The Copic colorless blender is what I use to blend them.

I love how, even without colour, you'd be able to tell by the facial shape which cub is what species. Very well done.
