Endangered Beauty by rebekahlynn Endangered Beauty by rebekahlynn
A commission for a cougar fan. I'm a cougar fan too...so the it all worked out quite nicely. Such gorgeous creatures.

She looks like *she* is the danger emmerging from the darkness, but in actuality, it is her who is in peril.
Three cougar species are listed as endangered throughout the world. The Eastern Cougar, in particular, is estimated at only 50 to 70 animals in the wild.

this is beautiful pencil work.
shading, line work, perspective is excellant.
and the face is perfect.
so many times i've seen people not quite
get a cat's facial proportions right.
but this is great.
a name?
well,...i'm always joking with my kids that i'm
an old mountain cat.
so call it 'old man on the mountain'.
ya think?
heh.
very nice work!

I'd call it "Awaken" or "Lucid Pray" cause the cougar looks somewhat sleepy.
