soooo yeah, i've been wanting to make one my whole deviantart life! now it ith here!!! anyway, you take that lineart at the bottom and use your now awesome anatomy skills and make it! submit it on your account and link me to it, i really want to see how good this tutorial was
meet me in the middle! i did the lineart now you do the details! i know drawing lineart sucks so i did it for you
i forgot the others....
there's an awesome website where i got those two scientific sketches at the bottom! come check it out ~ [link]
Very nice! Learned some new things about these pretty kitties ^ ^ Nice to see another cheetah nut - there's not really a whole lot out there on cheetah anatomy compared to other species, so every little bit helps!
I don't mean to be picky... but I don't think that a cheetah is a part of the big cat family. Big cats can roar but not purr, Med cats cant roar but can purr. I could be wrong and i have been before, but I will do some research to make sure.
some people don't count them as big cats, but still count them as big cats.... wait, that needs rewording XD
most people say roaring cats instead of big cats. the cheetah is a big cat but not a roaring cat. you can say either one! it just sounds better on the cheetahs part to say big cat! thats the reason cheetahs arent as popular as the other cats
plus, when counted as medium cats, they basically can roar. see those bones that i pointed out in those pictures at the bottom? the length of those determines if a cat can roar. the cheetah's is juuuust under that length! a centimeter longer and they could roar, just ONE teeny centimeter :C
