Aurora Eyes by Midnight-Sun-Art Aurora Eyes by Midnight-Sun-Art
This is for the International Cheetah Day Challenge.

Blog about the International Cheetah Day: [link]

More info about the ICDC: [link]

I read the journal above and I thought that using art to help save the cheetah, by raising awareness about it being endangered, was a really great idea. I started on a main piece, this one: [link]

I had some sparetime left, so I did this 2 hour speed paint as well. I used the northern lights, aurora borealis, as inspiration for the color choice. For the stars I used these magnificent brushes: [link]

It's an amazing concept! It reminds me of seeing Mufasa in the stars in Lion King.

This is gorgeous! I love how you used the natural color palette of a male peacock to create the coloration in the cheetah ^^
