Your leopard looks very like the photo. the spots must have driven you cross-eyed! I'm probably a bit late but maybe just a bit more shadow under the paw and a slightly darker branch where he shadows it?

Elizabeth, this is a very good likeness. The only thing is that the leopards left eye looks a little too high. In the photo they are dead level, but your drawing has the left eye distinctly higher than the right.

But I tell you what - I don't envy all the work you put in with the spots!

Batman.
