This is just about the most beautiful and expressive line-work I have ever seen. So many textures, so many details. I love the leopard's face - such a great expression. Great work.

This is such an amazing illustration. You expect the leopard to start moving.

There's something about some nice linework, and the way you do that marvellous bark just adds to the effect. =)
