TLK Cheetah by Nightrizer TLK Cheetah by Nightrizer
Here’s a pic of a cheetah for The International Cheetah Day Challenge that I sketched up real quick. I attempted to draw a cheetah in The Lion King style…I may have made his head too big but It’s my first try. :p

This was created to raise awareness of the endangered cheetah, and to help save them. :meow: For more information visit:
The Cheetah Conservation Fund: [link]
And: [link]

*Edit*
A lot of people have been saying that the tear mark isn't there...but it is, it's just hard to tell because that's how the marking is made in The Lion King style. :p It would have been easier to see if he wasn't smiling...in this pic it just looks like the corner of his mouth XP Sorry for any confusion.

I can't remember if it was the first or second movie, but there was a cheetah right in the introduction of the movie on the very first song. I think it might have been the second movie

Thanx, ;p but I don't think my animation is smooth enough X3 You need like 12 or even 24 pictures per second!

yeah xD my animation is only 12 per sec T_T but i get to take computer animation again this year and next year i think! :dummy:

You have an animation class!? O.o I wish my school was cool enough to have a class like that, or I would be in that instead of AP History. :p I think I'm going to practice on animating though, because that's what I want to go to college for...and I've been watching a lot of animated movies recently so I got plenty of inspiration XD.

I agree with everyone else on the head shape, but I also noticed that the normal mark for a cheetah(stripe from inner eye to corner of the mouth) isn't there or just isn't obvious enough. Anyway, it's well drawn, but it just needs a little bit of work.

He does look a little bulky in the head for a cheetah, but this is well done! I'm glad to see people drawing cheetah s for the International Cheetah Day Challenge! :D

This is really cool but i did think it was a leopard at first. the head is a little too big and cheetahs have black marks from the there tear ducts down to the side of the lip. thats there defining mark (check out a picture of one you'll see what i mean. many people (if u ask permission) will love to let you use there photographs to help you). overall absolutely love the pose and facial expression. GOOD JOB!!!

Yeah, the head's defiantly too big XP but there are tear marks, it's just hard too see because it's in the corner of his mouth; it would be easier to see if he wasn't smiling XD. That's how it is in Disney's style, shown in this screen shot from The Lion King 2: [link]

The head looks too thick to be a cheetah. It looks more panthereon than Cheetah to me. The muzzle needs to be smaller and the nose more slender. The body however isn't half bad!
