Billy 2 by Heatherzart Billy 2 by Heatherzart
My second picture of Billy.

24" x 36"
Scratchboard and ink

Thanks again to Allannah :iconalannah-hawker: for another great photo . I toyed with putting the greenery in there like the photo - I think it helps with the head pose but in the end I decided that I wanted it to fit in with the rest of the "Emerging" collection.

Professional photo FINALLY taken, detail is clearer and color is correct. Soooooo beautiful! Prints of this one and close-up cropped version now available

Wow what a magnificent creature and capture of the beautiful Big Cat Ocelot. what i love about this photograph is at first glance in HD i thought it was a statue but then i read the description to find out this beautiful ocelot is infact very real. The photographer is not only very gifted but also very lucky i would love to be this close to a big cat.My favorite part most of all is how the camera has captured the light shining from the ocelots eyes and how the ocelot is looking right into the camera beautiful photography thankyou for sharing :)

Amazing, amazing, amazing...

Just everything on this picture seems perfect. Yes, even the black background. I think it was a great decision to keep it black. It puts the focus more on the stunning details of the Kitty.
