Cougar, pastels on Canson Mi-tients paper

This is from a rough, black and white trail cam photo, I like the illustration look of this one. This is a more loose style I am working towards.

This is a cougar I did recently with pastels. I needed a LOT of therapy that day and finished 3 paintings. It really does calm me and for the moment allows me to settle the physical symptoms of PTSD. Instead of firing off random thoughts, you are able to calm yourself and think more clearly. So it definitely is beneficial.

This fellow is supposed to be scary and dangerous, but I don’t think he turned out that way. Maybe I just don’t have it in me. This is grapite pencil and watercolour pencils.
