Black Panther, a very powerful totem

Hi friends,

We have just come in November and it seems incredible that October has gone so fast! It has been a busy month, where I have completed an amazing online course on EDX  Natural History Illustration by the Newcastle University (Australia), where I have learnt and I have practiced very much with the pencil.

For the final project, I chose to draw a black panther, as I have felt always very attracted for the big cats and this one in particular has attached a very especial symbolism.

It is a very powerful totem, where the physical and mental strength, courage and capacity to inspire others are included.

I really wanted to create a final illustration with this animal, so I used my final project for this course as the base for it.

As usual, I have worked with a mixed media technique: pencil, watercolor and digital.

This is the final illustration

What do you think? Do you feel represented by this totem or do you know someone who could be? 🙂

Thanks for reading and a big hug from Spain!
