How to Draw a Cheetah – Narrated

How to Draw a Cheetah – Narrated


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto and
today we will draw a cheetah. We begin by drawing a circle for the head. Then we sketch the muzzle
with sort of a trapezium. Then the neck and back, and we give some better shape. Very good! The forehead goes up,
pretty steep from the nose. The nose is rounded, and down comes the mouth. The ears go back here and are pretty pointed. Alright! And we clean up
the drawing up it, with the kneaded eraser. The eye in which the top part
is straight, and the lower one is an upside down arch. Let´s draw the nose more
in detail. The part that is black,
is pretty triangular. As you already figured,
I´m drawing with a white pencil on a black cardboard. Let´s clean up the sketch lines,
to begin giving a tone. Since it is white on black,
I´m drawing in negative. Instead of drawing the shades,
we actually draw the lights. This gives a very nice effect! I´m giving a based tone to the
area of white, and as you see I smudge with my finger. To be able to do this I´m using
a pastel, it is a dry pencil, that is sort of like a chalk. The area that will be more in shadow
for now, I´ll leave it blank, that is black. Now we reinforce the areas
that are catching the most light. Our light source is on the top left. And we can clean up and make
darks, with an eraser. Down from the eye (to the left)
there is a teardrop, ah- path that is dark. It’s nearly black. We can draw this also
with the eraser. And I clean up the eye. In a little bit we will draw
what it´s inside. But for right now I want it
clean and black. Let´s do some highlights
to the edges of the ears, and now we draw what goes inside the eye. The iris, leaving the pupil black
with a small white reflection. And the whiskers. We begin drawing some hairy fur
and with the eraser, we create the dark spots. By the way, I will upload a long
version of this tutorial to my Patreon account. The link is in the description under the video. This area over here, is also catching a lot
of light, and therefore we press more. I like it how it is looking! Very good! ¡Excelente! And we can create some fur
layers like this. Which looks pretty nice and realistic. If we want to add black detail,
we can do so, with a black pencil. And to create the spots, I use a fine
pen-eraser like this one. The list of materials is also in
the description under the video, in case you want to check it out. We fine tone with the black pencil
and the eraser. The last details, and it´s ready! If you enjoyed it please

on Tuesday 😉 Subtitled by Grethel Trejo
