Snow leopard studies

When  time and weather conditions doesn`t allow to go outdoors to sketch, I`m browsing through  video footage hoping to find an interesting posture or scene...The videos offer moving images which are mostly  not sharp enough but this is the challenge for an artist, to try to understand form and anatomy and "transfer " it in to a clear and attractive picture..
