I was just about to say the EXACT same thing.. it does look a bit wet I think (if you want to fixe this) you can fix this by just skinning up the hairs =D

Awsome work though

First I thought it was a painting, its much more artistic than photo real, definetely a good work!.

What I would change a bit is also the fur what nanabaky mentioned, because the face looks a little bit flat. Probably if the fur wouldn't be as blury there as it is, than it could give a characteristic to the face.

But great work!

Hmm I don't see the flatness you seem to see. I think he looks like he is kind of about to rest his head on his paw and just holding his head down and looking up like a bad ass.

Is that sas in action. Care to share some settings?
Maybe the fur around the face is a little to “soft”.

The Cheetah is one of my fav animals. Got to admire an animal that can run faster than my car.

wow this looks so painted. Its a really nice style you got there and I personally like the wet hair look it gives him that wild punky look hehe

Thanks for the suggestions! It actually took a bit of finessing to get the fur on the head and chest to look believably damp. (He was looking pretty bland and unimpressive when he was all "soft-and-fuzzy.")

Thought I'd include the "Layout" for the Scene here... The comment about the face looking Photoshopped is a big compleiment to Lightwave and Worley Labs – the folks who made "Sasquatch" the furring system I used. (Will be doing a tutorial for them on the special "modifications" to the normal manner of shadowing used on the fur here.)

Great piece, really good stuff. How long did it take to do?

Concept to completion was about two leisurely days. Final render of 4000 x 4800 Cheetah Plate, (with fur,) took just under an hour on a 1.2 Ghz Athalon.
