I did this illustration for my digital illustration class my summer quarter of 2010. I used a reference image of a panther. Lately I have been thinking about getting a tattoo of a panther. This is one of the sickest animals out there in my opinion. If i saw one of these cats in the wild, I would trip out! It would be really sick to see, unless it was pitch black in the jungle. You probably wouldn't see it until it was mauling your face, and you probably still wouldn't see it. I've seen them at zoos, they seem so calm, but you know they got a mean side to them. They symbolize passion and courage.
